Tokyo Residents: Don’t Touch the Black or Blue Dirt

Fukushima has been decimated by radiation.

But Fukushima City has less than 300,000 residents.  And all of Fukushima prefecture has 2 million.  On the other hand, greater Tokyo – the world’s largest megacity – has 35 million inhabitants.

Tokyo soil has been blanketed by Fukushima radiation, even though the Japanese capital is 170 miles from the Fukushima nuclear complex. Indeed, officials just found “high levels” of radiation at 13 of 14 areas tested in a Tokyo public park.

Now, substances with even higher levels of radiation are showing up around Tokyo.

6/22/2012 85.03 μSv/h Mud in Fukushima City

Date: 6/22/2012 upload date

Editor's Note: The air measurement mentioned in the video description of .45 μSv/h is roughly 4.5 times as high as other parts of Japan, if we assume .1 μSv/h is "normal".  85 μSv/h would then be 850x the normal air reading by this metric.

Video Description
Spread ! Please share.
On 23 June 2012, I measured radiation at a riverside of WATARASE river in Fukushima city of Fukushima prefecture, Japan.

The monitoring point is central area of Fukushima city, near the bridge of national road route 4 across the river, only 200m for Fukushima prefectural government office, and 55km from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear power plant.

There are rain water drainage ditchs into ABUKUMA river from "WATARI", a housing area of Fukushima city.

I monitored 0.45 micro Sievert per hour in air at my breast hight of the river water's edge.
15.70 in air at 100cm high near mud of the drainage ditch, 85.03 micro Sievert per hour on the mud. It is said that "WATARI" area is one of the hotest spot of Fukushima city center area.
Measuring instrument is made of Ukraine, ECOTEST MKS-05.
Population of Fukushima city : 290,000.
This place has been reported in June 2012, by a NHK-ETV program, "What's going in rivers ? Networking, Fukushima Pollution Map"

6/19/2012 Reporter Bob Powell Reports on Mysterious Explosion in Michigan

Reporter Bob Powell who lives in Alpena, Michigan was arrested for attempting to interview the Executive Secretary at the Alpena Combat Readiness Training center whom he had called over the phone to inquire about the mysterious explosion which occurred at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 6/6/2012.  The reply on Bob's answering machine is that they (the base) were not responsible for the blast and did not know what caused it.  As per Bob Powell he has done reporting from military bases before without ever being arrested or subject to harsh treatment/threats.

Reporter Detained/Arrested Investigating Mysterious Explosion 6/6/12 (Part 1 - Witness Redacted)

Reporter Detained/Arrested Investigating Mysterious Explosion That Rocked N.E. Mi On 6-6-12 (2 of 2)

Below is Bob Powell's insightful CNN iReport titled Nuclear Coverup In Michigan?
(quoted verbatim):
As far as what’s been going on in Michigan this past week, here is what I can prove so far.

1. There was a huge explosion that rocked hundreds of square miles of North East Michigan last Wednesday. Not only have scores of people posted about their experience on Facebook, but Terry Kins, the Undersheriff of Alpena County, gave me his own account face to face.

2. The Undersheriff said local law enforcement is at a loss to explain the origin of the explosion. Deputies were dispatched to investigate, but no source was ever found. I’ve spoken to every state and federal government agency that might have the slightest oversight of this issue, from N.O.A.A. and the US Geological Survey, to the State Police; but they have all told me that they have no idea what could have caused the blast.

3. The local news media has not said a single word about this explosion. One would think that an unexplained blast that rocked hundreds of square miles might be a subject of interest for reporters in a town where the biggest events to happen all year are the Brown Trout and Potato Festivals; but there has not been a peep from any of them.

4. Roughly an hour and 45 minutes after the explosion here in Alpena, a radiation spike was recorded at three separate facilities simultaneously along the Michigan and Indiana border. Normal background radiation at those stations is 5 to 6 Counts Per Minute, but these brief spikes peaked at over 7 THOUSAND Counts Per Minute; and then the instruments fell silent.

5. The EPA quickly took down the reading, but a quick thinking internet user was able to grab a screenshot first. The EPA blamed a “glitch” in the instruments, but I find it difficult to believe that instrument packs from three different networks – two privately owned and one government-run - failed simultaneously with the same glitch. In addition, a police officer from Chicago also reported a radiation spike on the instruments at the police lab there. So that is FOUR reputable sources that recorded a radiation spike last Wednesday.

6. There have been insane amounts of military activity in Michigan over the past week. According to one witness I spoke with at the Alpena County Courthouse last Wednesday, a flight of Apache gunships came in off of Lake Huron heading west at the time of the blast we heard here in Northeast Michigan. Down below near the Indiana border, Apache gunships, Black Hawks, Chinooks, A-10 Thunderbolts, and AC-130 Spectre Gunships have been photographed in the skies.

7. While not proof of anything sinister in itself, it is interesting to note that Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota is currently running a “Nuclear Containment Drill,” and a fleet of Department of Homeland Security Nuclear Emergency Response HazMat trucks has been reported to have left its normal campus where the vehicles have been parked, immobile, for years.

8. The military doesn’t seem to care about the concerns of the residents in Michigan. A message was left on my cell phone by the Alpena CRTC’s executive assistant denying any knowledge of the source of the blast. These people are supposed to be in charge of our national security, and the best answer they can come up with is “It wasn’t us?”

9. When I tried to get that statement on video, I was arrested the second I stepped on to the base. If I was just some nosy busybody, I could understand that; but I have credentials going back almost a quarter of a century. I’ve interviewed Congressmen, Senators, Governors, Presidential candidates. During Desert Storm, I was responsible for reporting from Peterson Air Force Base, the US Space Command, the 4th ID out of Ft. Carson, and NORAD for KVOR and the CBS Radio Network.

If I can interview spokesmen at those bases during a time of war the question has to be asked: Why the stonewalling now, in peacetime, at this tiny little base tucked away in the back woods of Northern Michigan?

1st report -
Update -

The only item I would take issue with is 4. as we do have conflicting information from Radiation Network.  As per Tim Flanegan who runs Radiation Network, the experienced operator whose station reported the 7K CPM (counts per minute) Geiger counter reading is positive his computer software and not the Geiger counter itself was responsible for misreporting the high 7K CPM reading.  Also the same Geiger counter is confirmed to have fed in to both Radiation Network and Black Cat Systems, which would give the false impression that two different stations in the same area corroborated elevated radiation. See 6/15/2012 Radiation Network Alerts Show They are POSITIVE South Bend, IN was a FALSE Detection for details.

6/15/2012 Radiation Network Alerts Show They are POSITIVE South Bend, IN was a FALSE Detection

Source: RadiationNetwork Alerts
Date: 6/15/2012

I was checking the Radiation Network crowd-sourced national Geiger counter readings map and noticed that they had an update for the extraordinarily high South Bend, Indiana reading from 6/6/2012.  This did raise the alarm bell in the blogosphere.  Apparently the same Geiger counter station has now been confirmed to be hooked up to both Radiation Network and Black Cat Systems.  Therefore there was no second station in the area confirming the high reading as some speculated (it was the same station).  Below is the Radiation Network alert which I have cut and pasted with the details:

Postscript: 6/16/12, 10:50 A.M: - Radiation Alert from Indiana
You may notice that the South Bend, Indiana station that triggered the high Alert on June 6th is back online.  He plans to operate his station only while he is there to attend it, and has taken interim steps to improve the integrity of his system until he can build a dedicated setup just for the purpose of this radiation monitoring.  A few new facts:

bulletThere was no lightning storm at his location that evening.
bulletConfirmed that his monitoring station was feeding both the RadiationNetwork and the Black Cat Systems network simultaneously, using Virtual Serial Port Emulation software, which means there was no corroborating reading at the identical location from a different system, because the Black Cat reading was from the same Geiger counter.  As stated before, the Black Cat system uses a different unit of radiation measurement, and there is also a lag time built into their reporting.
bulletEven though the RadiationNetwork had disabled his connection, the operator's station continued to run locally, and he found after awakening that the Geiger counter itself was showing normal readings as indicated by the occasional frequency of its blinking red light!  It was the computer and software only that were registering high radiation levels
bulletThe Geiger counter was being supplied by A/C, not battery power, and it is the station operator's strong opinion that had the counter been running on a battery during the time of the incident, the alert would never have occurred.
I myself have limited knowledge in electronics, but this station operator is very experienced, and putting all of the above facts together, along with the makeup of his system, which involved a series of UPS backups in combination with GFCI outlet and serial connections, his best judgment is that a ground loop had developed and triggered the high radiation levels showing on the softwares that fed the radiation networks - a fluke in his particular hardware combination.
In conclusion, the station operator has worked diligently in troubleshooting the problem, and has taken interim and permanent steps to build strong integrity into his monitoring system.  He has been fully cooperative and responsive since the alert, and he has my full support.  He wishes to reiterate his deep apology for the concern his false alert caused.
For our part, we at the Radiation Network need a faster reacting system to end false alerts sooner, but only after we have reasonably determined that the alert is in fact false.  The genuine alerts stay - in keeping with our function as an early warning system.
One final note: Some media reports of this incident seemingly confused these two:

bulletRadiation Network - that's us, a privately owned and operated, citizen-based monitoring system, versus...
bulletRadNet, a Federal Government radiation monitoring system operated by the EPA.
Big difference in many ways.  You might review my assessment of "Radiation Monitoring by Government vs. Private Citizen", the 3/29/11 Update from the Archive2 page linked above.

For the older reports of the South Bend, Indiana reading see:
  1. 6/7/2012 The 7000 CPM reading from South Bend, Indiana was a FALSE alert, RadiationNews
  2. 6/7/2012 High Geiger counter readings from South Bend, Indiana 7000CPM highest, RadiationNews
Update: Tim Flanegan ( who runs Radiation Network was on the Jeff Rense radio show today to give his opinion on the South Bend, IN reading. He said he was 99% sure this was a false reading and that he did not have any comment one way or another on the military activity or loud boom noises heard near the Michigan border. Also of note is that high rainwater readings are often attributed to Radon washout. If the high reading goes away after a few hours or days it is probably Radon washout. If the high reading stays it is time to send the water sample to a lab for radionuclide isotope testing.

Right after Chernobyl blew its top, Edward Teller said on the ABC Evening News in late April 1986, “The chances of a real calamity at a nuclear power station are infinitesimally small. But should it happen, the consequences are impossible to imagine.” The plume from the burning graphite at Chernobyl initially traveled in a northwest direction toward Sweden, Finland and Eastern Europe, exposing the public to levels up to 100 times the normal background radiation.

6/7/2012 The 7000 CPM reading from South Bend, Indiana was a FALSE alert

Date: 6/7/2012 7:45 AM

As per the Alert section in the 7000 CPM reading from South Bend, Indiana was probably due to equipment failure and has been flagged as false with an apology:

Update: 6/7/12, 7:45 A.M: - False Alert:  The alert level reading last evening appears to be a false alert from an equipment malfunction.  Here is the station's report:
"out of control readings on the GeigerGraph screen from about 11:30pm local time that occurred while sleeping. My apologies to all. I have no idea what caused this. Shut down GeigerGraph and restarted. Readings from the Geiger were in the normal range (the Geiger operates on A/C). All cable connections are tight and not loose. Am speculating between the GFI and USB Adapter and some sort of voltage spikes. The uninterruptable power supply UPS had lost power and had died - a tripped GFI. I am not going to leave the system running while not at home until I can determine and fix the problem."
By the way, a handful of stations on the Radiation Network feed simultaneously to the Black Cat Systems network, which explains why a high reading was showing on their network at the same time.  But Black Cat works in uR/hr instead of CPM, so their radiation level was lower because of the conversion factor between units of measurement.
Update: 6/6/12, 11:55 P.M. - Very high reading in South Bend, IN station this evening.   Reason unknown.  Station unresponsive to contact at this late hour.  Since this same station has triggered the Alert system before, which Alerts may have been false, and because his current readings do not appear to be corroborated by nearby stations, we have disabled his station for the time being.  Will report back when we know more.

Also note from the highlight above that some of the Geiger counters in also feed in to

At time of upload station is reading 7,000 cpm again 1:10 am.

@2:00 am numbers dropped to normal and then went up to 300's...Black Cat is reading hign too in tandem...if this IS a plume this is not from Fuku, it would have set off other detectors west of there from the wind direction in the days prior. This is either a malfunction, or this is a local plant or local event. My next guess would be check military installations in area for activity as well. It should start setting off detectors south/southeast in the next few hours, if its real. I will be calling the NRC back in the a.m. There are several other nuke plants N/NW/W that need to be checked too if it continues.

Anyone local with a geiger please post readings.
