Virginia Earthquake And Suspected Nuke Plant Radiation Leak

Virginia's earthquake Monday has caused a radiation leak according the only real-time nuclear monitoring site for the United States.  Still no reports from the MSM.  We've used this monitoring site since Fukushima and never saw a white bubble with a 100+ reading until tonight.

From USGS:

Reading in excess of 100 are examples where radiation levels are above and beyond basic background radiation
The  Radiation Network website will automatically update the readings.

From Radiation Network:

Location of North Anna Power Station:

And a report from RobertSingleton:
Dominion Power notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that it had issued a Notification of Unusual Event (NOUE) at its North Anna nuclear power plant early yesterday evening after experiencing a 3.2 magnitude earthquake at the facility in Virginia. The NOUE was terminated just after midnight following a walkthrough inspection. Both reactors at the plant continued to operate at full capacity during the incident. The tremor is thought to be an aftershock from the 5.8 magnitude quake that shut down both units at the plant on August 23, 2011.
