The State is responding to the radiation scare from Japan by setting up a special hotline. The toll free number has updated information from experts who are monitoring our air and water for radioactivity. Here's a sample of what you could hear if you called the number: "According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, due the thousands of miles from Japan, Hawaii, and Alaska and the west coast; we are not expected to experience any harmful levels of radioactivity. Since the explosion there have no elevated readings of radioativity detected in Oregon and air sample reports remain normal. Oregon Public Health receives hourly reports of atmospheric data and will continue to monitor the situation." There are two radiation monitoring stations in Oregon; one in Portland and one in Corvallis. The toll free hotline number is 1-877-290-6767.
