Worries over radiation from Fukushima meltdown reaching U.S.
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Could Fukushima's radioactive ocean plume already be making its way to America's west coast?
A new Youtube video claims all signs point to yes.
The video shows a man using a Geiger counter, which detects radiation, at a beach in San Francisco. It ended up with a reading more than five times the safe level.
Oceanographers for the journal "Deep-Sea Research" predicted radioactive particles could reach the U.S. by this summer.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is investigating and expects to release more information this week.
