Indiana Elevated Radiation Readings Coincide With
'Nuclear Containment Exercise'?

Warning:  Take with grain of salt.  I do not have a corroborative link as of yet.  Am leaving post up for the informative links it possesses.

From Natural Society:

Amid a number of reports of massive and bizarre radiation readouts coming from experts, eyewitnesses, radiation facilities, and a key choice news outlet, it has now come out that one of the largest nuclear bases is currently running a ‘nuclear containment exercise’ [await corroboration - ed.]. The Minot Airforce Base exercise, running in North Dakota, reportedly involves the use of B-52 aircrafts. The news comes after a developing story arose over the potential cover-up of a nuclear situation stemming from near the border of Indiana and Michigan.
Sources from near where the elevated levels of radiation were observed say that a Department of Homeland Security ‘hazmat’ fleet has been dispatched after ‘years’ of inactivity. The story first erupted after online geiger readings showed an unprecedented radiation spike in the area, with levels reaching as high as 7.139 counts per minute (CPM) over the average of between 5 and 6. While there has been no official reported cause of the spike, there has been quite a bit of foul play regarding the information being put forth by many media outlets, the EPA, and even radiation measurement centers.  After the readings shocked viewers, the EPA quickly censored the ability to view the levels online.

6/7/2012 — RADIATION ALERT on multiple systems — North Indiana – South Michigan

Sherrie Questioning All: What is happening in Indiana? First 7000+ Radiation Readings then military all over where the radiation spiked - Loud Explosions caught on tape

Be seeing you.


  1. Hi,
    After reading a number of reports, I'm still confused (as usual). Some have shown the comma in 7,000+, while others show a period,, which would be pretty close to normal. The unusual military activity reported is interesting. My senses tell me this is a test. Since its not being reported on MSM, the test would be to determine how internet manipulation can create paranoia. Kind of a 2012 "War of the Worlds". Just IMHO. Rob in WI

  2. very good sniff! plausible. thank you.

  3. Go to the source: Radiation Network explains that it was a false alert:

    Update: 6/7/12, 7:45 A.M: - False Alert: The alert level reading last evening appears to be a false alert from an equipment malfunction. Here is the station's report:

    "out of control readings on the GeigerGraph screen from about 11:30pm local time that occurred while sleeping. My apologies to all. I have no idea what caused this. Shut down GeigerGraph and restarted. Readings from the Geiger were in the normal range (the Geiger operates on A/C). All cable connections are tight and not loose. Am speculating between the GFI and USB Adapter and some sort of voltage spikes. The uninterruptable power supply UPS had lost power and had died - a tripped GFI. I am not going to leave the system running while not at home until I can determine and fix the problem."

    By the way, a handful of stations on the Radiation Network feed simultaneously to the Black Cat Systems network, which explains why a high reading was showing on their network at the same time. But Black Cat works in uR/hr instead of CPM, so their radiation level was lower because of the conversion factor between units of measurement

    As of today the area's meters show "normal" CPM levels (25-35).
