Radioactive rainwater recorded on east coast and level is "comparable to findings in California"?
The article statest that:
"The low level of radioiodine-131 detected in precipitation at a sample location in Massachusetts is comparable to findings in California, Washington state and Pennsylvania and poses no threat to drinking supplies, public health officials said."
How is is possible that the East coast levels would be comparable to our local levels? The East coast is about 2500 miles farther.
Thanks for your insights!
