US EPA — Japanese Nuclear Emergency: Radiation Monitoring

Japanese Nuclear Emergency: Radiation Monitoring

As of 11:30 a.m. (EDT) on March 19, EPA’s RadNet radiation air monitors across the U.S. show typical fluctuations in background radiation levels. The levels detected are far below levels of concern. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has said we do not expect to see radiation at harmful levels reaching the U.S. from damaged Japanese nuclear power plants.
