Radiation Test Results From Roof Catchment Water on the Big Island of Hawaii

I noticed this video uploaded to youtube today that is basically a radiation test of water taken from the roof of a catchment system here in the Ainaloa area of the Big Island:

Here is what the person said about the video:

…So far, all samples have returned “low” levels.. or basically NO levels of radioactive contamination.

This sample.. recored at 32.1 CPM … falls FAR below the even basic “alert level”… which is 100CPM according to the “radiation network”… http://www.radiationnetwork.com

Unless we get readings OVER 100 CPM.. we really have no cause for worry… right now.. this establishes a ‘baseline’ for us to make future measurements, and compare.

The good news also, is that these levels.. VERY CLOSE to fukushima japan, are LOWER than we see in the Midwest USA .. where I live!…
