    Seeing as the only sites I can find covering this are ones I would consider unreliable, I am skeptical.

    Why would fracking explosions cause a spike in radiation? Some hydrocarbons have isotopes in them, but even their mass ignition wouldn't cause a spike like what's been reported.

    Radiation doesn't knock trees over, either. It might ignite or kill them, but it doesn't usually carry a concussive force.

    Mistaken radiation readings cause concern

    Ah, it was an equipment malfunction.

    It seems odd that there would be such a high rad spike being reported as an equipment malfunction during a situation where explosions and large amounts of military vehicles were recorded.

    Not if those explosions and military vehicles were being recorded and reported by people who see them everywhere, as appears to be the case, aside from the hazmat and containment fleets that were dispatched as soon as the inaccurate results were detected. Those guys don't wait to figure out if the alarm is false or not.
