From President Barack Obama to California’s regional environmental protection agency, government officials assured Americans Thursday that they need not fear harmful radiation emissions from Japan.

“There is no increased risk of harmful levels of radiation exposure in the United States, based on the situation to date and a review of actual monitored levels by the AQMD [Air Quality Management District],” William A. Burke, chairman of the regional South Coast Air Quality Management District, said in a statement.

The AQMD operates three outdoor radiation monitors in Southern California together with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Radiation levels are recorded every hour and sent to the EPA. The California Department of Public Health operates an additional radiation monitor in Southern California as well.

Residents can get a daily update on Southern California radiation levels from the AQMD website. Sign up for a daily email alert or go to the site for a current reading.

“As of today, radiation levels measured at three regional sites operated by the South Coast Air Quality Management District for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have not been higher than typical ‘background’ levels seen before the earthquake and tsunami in Japan,” the site says. “In the unlikely event that this changes, these extremely sensitive monitors will detect any change in outdoor radiation levels and it will be reported on this website.”
