If it travels all the way from Japan to the west coast and is still powerfull enough to cause problems, then the east coast will have problems also.
If it's as bad as some here predict then it will be bad for the whole nation, there is no magic barrier once it hits california that will protect the
rest of the nation. I don't think it will be an issue for us, at least not short term, maybe long term issues with cancer and birth defects. I am no
expert but I would have to assume that the severity of radiation will depend on how much it disperses between point a-b and the decay time of the
radiation. From Japan to CA I assume it will take a few days to travel, and from CA to the east coast would probably be less. Also I am not a weather
pattern expert, just my thoughts.
When Chernobyl blew up the cloud crossed most of nothern europe, I believe England is alot closer to Ukrain then the west coast is to Japan, and
england survived that incident just fine. Just my thoughts.
