Live records for a radiation monitoring station near the border of Indiana and Michigan have shown radiation levels as high as 7,139 counts per minute (CPM). At 1:55 a.m., Eastern time, the radiation level was at 2,558 CPM. The level has varied in between 2,000 CPM and 7,000 CPM for numerous hours.

Standard radiation levels are between 5 and 60 CPM, and any readings above 100 CPM should be deemed unusual and trigger an alert, according to information listed on the RadNet web site ( http://www.radiationnetwork.com/ )
