Radiation Levels Along the West Coast Not A Concern

Monday, March 21st, 2011

The unprecedented earthquake occurring in Japan on Friday, March 11, 2011 and subsequent tsunami that devastated Japan’s western seaboard also affected a nuclear power plant in Fukushima.  Despite valiant on-going containment efforts, radioactive materials have escaped into the air, elevating radiation levels in surrounding areas.  As of March 16, emergency evacuation has been ordered for people who live withing 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) from the troubled nuclear power plant.  While these events are occurring more than 4500 miles from the West Coast of the United States, there is growing public concern regarding radiation.  However, authorities from the Departments of Health in Washington, Oregon and Alaska (the three states in NN/LM PNR along the coast), state that there is no public health risk from the damaged nuclear reactor.
