I'm guessing this is more in relation to the people working on and near the reactors and in the cities surrounding rather than 6000 miles away at that point. Only very low levels (pretty much unreadable ones) may have hit the coast. I say may have because there hasn't been significant enough spikes to suggest any significant new radiation has arrived so we don't even know if its hit yet
(AP) -- Radioactive fallout from Japan's crippled nuclear plant has reached Southern California but the first readings are far below levels that could pose a health hazard, a diplomat said Friday.
The diplomat, who has access to radiation tracking by the U.N.'s Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization, cited readings from a California-based measuring station of the group.

Outrageous if you ask me! We have known nuke power was dangerous from the beginning and, in its relatively short history, we have a number of serious accidents that threaten humanity and the world.
What will it take to stop these arrogant greedy bastards from killing or maiming humanity?! Nuclear power IS NOT SAFE! Look at that man's face of shame and grief.
