  1. It is potentially dangerous all over and geiger measures were high in the US in this period too. We need a weather map from those days. Based on what I could find it probably is in the region they said and split with part getting sucked north by the hurricanes into northern Europe and on into the US and part south by another low. Or perhaps as in many accidents (and farts) others decided to vent too. Maybe US and Russia testing new fuels for mars in coordination?

  2. “The Swedish Defence Research Agency is the organization that conducts radiation monitoring for that country”

    Thats not true. The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority conducts radiation monitoring for Sweden
