Radiation scare in Indiana sparks allegations of nuclear coverup

Not much information on this one about a possible nuclear containment exercise, however this web site does their best to scare the hell out of everyone.

Explosions, Military Helicopters Near Blacked Out Radiation Zone.

Eyewitnesses on the ground near the media-blacked-out elevated radiation zone near the border of Indiana and Michigan, where radiation levels hundreds of times higher than normal were quickly removed from public viewing by the EPA, are now sending in a large number of photos and videos documenting massive explosions accompanied by unmarked helicopters, A-10 Thunderbolts, and military personnel. These reports come after a Department of Homeland Security hazmat fleet was sent out to the location after ‘years’ of inactivity.

Those on the ground report that the explosions are ‘loud and deep’, sounding like fireworks with a kick. The explosions are oftentimes followed up with a squadron of helicopters or other aircraft, oftentimes black and unmarked.

Tip: Fark.com

OK. It is officially announced that it was a false alarm:

The owner of the company that owns the site that monitors radiation across the U.S. told WSBT-TV that the readings reported Wednesday and early Thursday on the Radiation Network site were a false alarm.

What about the reports of military aircraft and booms? And the claims that a radiation spike was recorded independently by different networks. It’s unclear since there the only reports on this is originating from the source above, not news or government sites. The rest of the discussion is flaring on reddit or conspiracy discussion forums. What to make of it? Don’t know. But Fark commentators made a good point that a true radiation leak does not just go away, it is detectable. Other comments note that it may have been a military exercise or a diaster drill.

    I wish we’d have more posts about Thorium, the kinder, gentler nuclear fuel (or so they say.)
