People in California should not fear radiation from Japan reaching the state Friday, officials said as a U.S. agency added radiation monitors to the region.
"We do not anticipate any amounts of radiation that will cause any health effects," said California Department of Public Health interim Director Howard Backer.
A United Nations forecast of the movement of the radioactive plume coming from Japan's crippled Fukushima reactors indicated it would hit Southern California, more than 5,000 miles away, late Friday.
Health and nuclear experts said the plume's radiation would be diluted and, at worst, have extremely minor health consequences in the United States, The New York Times reported.
California's Emergency Management Agency confirmed Thursday California could detect heightened radiation as early as Friday. But it said health effects would be all but unnoticeable.
Oregon and Washington also monitored for any increase in radiation levels from the Japanese plant, crippled in the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
