It seems that we MIGHT be living through a new Chernobyl or Fukushima event type release of radiation, but as expected during the early days and months of the event the public will be told not to worry.

Quote:
Monitors in Italy were among first to detect the radioactive isotope ruthenium-106 on Oct. 3, according to a fresh report by France's Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety Institute, known as IRSN. In total, 28 European countries saw the radioactive cloud, the report says.

As soon as it became aware of the first detections of Ruthenium 106 in the atmosphere in Italy on 3
October, 2017, IRSN mobilized all its means of radiological monitoring of the atmosphere and
conducted regular analysis of the filters from its monitoring stations2. For the period from
September 27 to October 13, only the stations of Seyne-sur-Mer, Nice and Ajaccio revealed the
presence of Ruthenium 106 in trace amounts. During this period, the highest value (46 microBq/m3),
was recorded in Nice between 2 and 9 October. Since October 13, 2017, Ruthenium 106 is
no longer detected in France. All IRSN measurement results between September 26 and October 19
are presented in Appendix 1.
