I mean tremendous. I really really really think that the US government took the opportunity of the Christmas holiday to fasten the burn-up in the Brunswick reactor, hoping that no one will be looking. This happened at ~noon Eastern time on Dec 25. It’s simple to throw a lot of water in the burning core to make it explode and burn powerfully.
That’s 31 microSv/h. Checking with winds confirms perfectly that this area was under the winds coming from the Brunswick nuclear reactor.
Epidemiological effect is already visible with leukemia. The obvious is more immediate because the population is already under very high radiological pressure. Texas and California as well as Florida are highly affected (zooming on the last 7 days but with such a restraint choice of words it is harder for Google to provide what it sees as reliable data for smaller US states) – which matches the direction of the cloud (based on low-altitude winds (uranium-rich unlike high altitude clouds containing lighter fission products) at that time).
The radioactivity in the main beacon I’ve followed eventually quickly decreased, to 3150 CPM, then 650 CPM, then back to normal in a few minutes. Another beacon showed a very abnormal reading (the Raleigh thin-lined showed 95, which is 285 in the scale of the first – remember that fat-lined (“pancakes”) have to be divided by 3 to reach thin-lined levels). All of this in a few minutes (I had to “screenshot” twice, leaving out timestamp, but it was because of the need to have an immediate response). I had to sleep and may have missed the next steps of the huge cloud but it was traveling very slowly and I could not wait.
After it travelled around the world some of the cloud came back, producing a much weaker peak – it is at HIGH altitudes so of course the onground peak in gamma is weak, but easy to see and that’s really unusual. Confirms that it comes from the Dec 25 massive release. I spend a lot of time on radiationnetwork and have never seen such peaks since the beginning of the Brunswick fire in September.

3. The cloud coming : Indiana first, then Ohio & Pennsylvania
I refer my readers to the main article on the fallout tracking and its epidemiological effects (with Google Trends they are already humongous). I’ll update from this page now.
