Daily radiation data available online
PORTLAND, Ore. – Radiation monitors throughout Oregon show there is still no risk of radiation from Japan, state officials said Tuesday.
“We do not expect any reading above normal,” said Gail Shibley, administrator of the Office of Environmental Public Health at the Oregon Public Health Division.
To help keep the public informed on a day-by-day basis, the state is now posting online daily radiation levels from the Environmental Protection Agency.
Shibley noted there is naturally occurring radiation in our environment every day, so those levels will be reflected in the data.
If you have questions about radiation from the Japan nuclear disaster, the state set up a website with public resources.
