Transcript Summary

At 16:55 in

  • After Japan, the next hottest area is the Cascades, the Pacific Cascades
  • A lot of the radiation came across the Pacific and hit the mountains, hit the Rockies, and deposited on the west side of the Rockies
  • We’ve seen readings in the Portland areas of about 100 [becquerels/m²] disintegrations per second in a square meter of cesium 134 and 137
