Wait, is the map interactive? I see a JPG map that is static -- clicking it does nothing. It shows what it shows and there's nothing to interact with.
Thank you, Kym and Tom.Not sure what news to believe is blowing in the winds but it doesn't sound good:"Radiation Plume Reaches U.S., but Is Said to Pose No Risk" "Sacramento Sensor Detects Trace Amounts of Radiation" 'America on Nuclear Alert: Could Fallout Reach U.S. West Coast?"...pay attention to recent news... peace, skips
Anonymous, there is a way to become part of the system. If you read further on the page you would have seen this:How to Participate in the Nationwide Radiation Network:If you want to join this nationwide grass roots effort to monitor the radiation in our environment, then this is all you need (click on the Software link): Digital Geiger Counter (See models below) GeigerGraph Software and Data Cable Computer with Windows Operating System Internet Access (Direct connection preferred) In fact, if you become an active participant in this network (instead of just a passive viewer of this website), the GeigerGraph software that you use will incorporate the same Radiation Map as above, but your map will be fully interactive, with zoom capabilities, descriptions of Nuclear Sites and Monitoring Stations, additional Map Layers, including Counties, Airports, Roads, Railroads, Lakes and Rivers, and even the capability to download City Streets for your county. Plus, in keeping with the elements of a true Network, the GeigerGraph software has its own Chat forum.Compatible Geiger Counter Models: The Geiger Monitor 4 (yr 2008 redesign) Radalert 50 and Radalert 100 Digilert 50 and Digilert 100 palmRAD Inspector Inspector EXP Most of these models, as well as the GeigerGraph for Networks software, are available at GeigerCounters.com, a web site operated by Mineralab.

That's a pretty mickey-mouse site. C;mon - someone with credible credentials would not put up a site like that.The worst part of this whole thing is the complete an utter lack of credible information. Reporters can't be trusted, scientists can't be trusted, and the White House Spokesman tell the reporters to get answers from their colleagues because he apparently has none.Even IF we are getting bombarded, no one has iodine tablets, no one will have them in time, no one is giving you any information and everyone is running scared.NO ONE is prepared, no one has food put away, no one has a secure place to stay, no one has done any disaster planning of any consequence and now - if what you all imagine were to come to pass - it is too late.We're lucky this time - industry contacts say that things are not as dire as they are being made out to be, the world may dodge a bullet because Japan is not Haiti. They build well, and they will get it under control at any cost.But - what are you going to demand of your elected officials? Why aren't they making sure the area is prepared? Would we hold up as well as Japan? I don't think so.
Luckily for Haiti they build so bad that they never even tried to build a nuclear power plant.
