Radiation in the plume will be diluted as it travels eastward and, according to health and nuclear experts, even if it is detectable, would have minor health consequences in places like Tucson.

It ends with the plume heading into Southern California and the American Southwest, including Nevada, Utah and Arizona. The plume would have continued eastward if the United Nations scientists had run the projection forward.
