LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Officials in Michigan say analysis of an air sample has detected very low levels of radiation that's believed to be from a damaged nuclear power complex in Japan.
The state announced Wednesday that the "very low concentrations" of radioactive Iodine-131 found in a routine sample taken Monday in Lansing pose "no health threat to residents."
Officials at the state Department of Community Health say the "scant levels" are thousands of times less than what would lead them to recommend any sort of protective action.
Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power complex began leaking radiation after it was damaged by a devastating earthquake and tsunami earlier this month.
Minute amounts of radiation have spread as far as the U.S. East Coast.
