Some scientists say radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan has not reached California's coast yet, but it may start seeing traces by April.

Radiation escaped from the plant after it was severely damaged in the 2011 earthquake that rocked Northern Japan.

Experts on nuclear fallout met in Hawaii on Monday. They've analyzed tests conducted along the California coast.

Those tests show no increases so far in the type of radiation that was released from the Fukushima plant.
