Click for the list of America’s most Radioactive Cities.
February 20 to February 27, 2016
RADIATION CPM* CITY STATE
Listed in Counts per Minute, a Count is One Radioactive Decay Registered by the Instrument.
The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city reporting is listed last. Still, all reporting cities are above normal. These are the American cities that exceeded 1,000 CPM this week.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM

Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM 
Twenty-two (22) cities exceed 1,000 CPM this week. There are Seventeen cities between 900 and 999 CPM.
No, It is not OK now
The reduction in the count of cities over 1000 CPM does not mean it is OK now; or, even that it is getting better. Often times when the Radiation goes down the associated Lethality of the Isotopes goes up. The two things are separate measures. It could mean that some of the Uranium 238 has gained a Neutron and changed to Plutonium 239, a more dangerous Isotope.
Have a wonderful radioactive weekend and remember to Dodge the Rads, it’s dangerous out there.
