Fukushima fallout hitting Taiwan
April 22nd 2011
Monitoring stations around Taiwan show noticeable spikes in radiation levels measured all around the island. Some radiation levels measured were twice as high as normal.
On the left is a screen-shot taking from http://rmsp.trmc.aec.gov.tw/user/taiwan_out.asp?c2e=e a government website.
This website has been inaccessible since the first fallout hit around April 3rd.
The other screen-shot is from the Atomic Energy Council http://220.127.116.11/gammadetect.php which is still available today.
This graphic showed some noticeable rise in radiations.
It should be taken into consideration that there is a difference between background radiation and radioactive fallout. While twice the amount of background radiation should not cause any threat to human health, the intake of radioactive isotopes does.
