According to RadNet, the United States’ radiation monitoring newtork, Northern Indiana is experiencing extremely high levels of radiation — up to 100 times higher than normal.
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 and dropping. The level has varied between 2,000 CPM and 7,000 CPM for several hours.
Normal radiation levels are between 5 and 60 CPM, and any readings above 100 CPM should be considered unusual and trigger an alert, according to information listed on the RadNet website.
RadNet has not yet issued an alert regarding this issue or stated whether the monitor may be malfunctioning.
This high level of radiation is taking place in the exact same location where 60′ trees were recently snapped and earthquakes were recently felt by residents as described in this video.

Michigan Nuclear Radiation Danger Fermi 2 Shutdown (Feb. 13/2011)
Michigan’s Fermi 2 reactor stopped after condenser tube leak discovered, little information on radiation dangers
After being idled for repairs for two weeks, the Fermi 2 reactor of the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Generating Station was restarted Thursday night and then shut down again Saturday due to discovery that condenser tubes were leaking, the Monroe Evening News of Michigan Reported.
Incident largely underreported in US
Still unknown if radiation is leaking

History of the Fermi plant
The Fermi 1 reactor of the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Generating Station was a prototype for a breeder, or fast neutron reactor. The reactor experienced a serious emergency on October 5, 1966 — a partial core meltdown. After attempts to repair it, the reactor was completely shut down in 1975
In September of 2008, DTE Energy announced intentions to build another reactor on the site of the Enrico Fermi Nuclear Generating Station. The idea provoked protests by various civil initiative groups who underscored that a new reactor would pose health and environmental dangers.
