(TheWeatherSpace.com) — A hoax is going around the Internet about a nuclear fallout map, which kills people in the Western United States.

The hoax is going around and has caught a few off guard. The Australian Radiation Services did not issue a fallout map that reaches the Western United States, including Canada.

There is not much to say about this other than it is a hoax. TWS has corrected and pulled the article. 

Here is a site that has radiation monitoring stations that update every 3 minutes.

I’m not saying that you getting potassium Iodine is a bad idea it’s just not critical to get or start taking it.

    Thanks for the sanity check!!!

  2. When I 1st saw it it scared the bejeebers out of me. But I was and NBC Nuclear,Biological and Chemical NCO in the Army and at these dosages everyone caught in the fallout in Japan would have been unconscious and dying in about 12-24 hours. Since that didn't happen I started looking into the Picture. Things are bad but there is no reason to panic. Many places have sold out of KI tablets.
