University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, Oct 31, 2017 (emphasis added):
- Fukushima-derived radiocesium fallout in Hawaiian soils… This study estimated the magnitude of cesium deposition in soil, collected in 2015-2016, resulting from atmospheric fallout… Detectable, Fukushima-derived 134Cs inventories ranged from 30 to 630 Bq m-2 and 137Cs inventories ranged from 20 to 2200 Bq m-2… This research confirmed and quantified the presence of Fukushima-derived fallout in the state of Hawai’i in amounts higher than predicted by models and observed in the United States mainland… Continue reading
Though the threat of an electromagnetic pulse weapon is part of the popular imagination, many don’t take it seriously. But what would happen if a rogue state, such as North Korea, attempted to use an EMP attack on the United States?

Traces of radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant meltdown will be detectable at the Pacific coast, in April 2014.
According to a scientific model developed by Vincent Rossi, a post-doctoral research associate at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems in Spain, traces of Fukushima’s radiation will reach Alaska and coastal Canada first. Continue reading
