Radiation From Japanese Nuclear Reactor Found in California, on Airline Passengers in Chicago and Dallas

CNN is reporting that Tibor Toth of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization has announced that a radiation monitor in Sacramento California has detected a minute amount of radioactive fallout from the Fukushima nuclear power plan in Sendai Japan.

California Radiation

Radiation from the Fukushima nuclear reactor crisis reaches Sacramento California.

While this amount of radiation has determined to not be harmful, it is alarming that radiation from the nuclear crisis has reached America’s shores this quickly, and after so many official announcements that the nuclear crisis in Japan did not pose a threat to the United States.

This is causing fresh concern in the U.S. as it comes shortly after airline passengers from Tokyo Japan have been arriving in Chicago’s O’Hara Airport and the Dallas-Fort-Worth Airport and setting off the radiation monitors in customs.

The Department of Homeland Security already monitors all incoming planes and passengers for radiation, but has been paying extra attention to flights originating in Japan.

Officials stated that it is not uncommon for radiation to be detected on flights, from such sources as medical equipment, tile, and other innocuous materials.
