We've already had a similar event in Europe remember? Chernobyl 1986. The authorities tried to cover the accident up.
A nuclear power plant in Sweden picked up an abnormal radiation reading. They first thought it was them!, but it wasn't and then the authorities in Chernobyl had to come clean.
As I recall radiation from Chernobyl was picked up as far away as the Welsh mountains, so it certainly can travel a long way.


Lasting damage? No evidence of long range lasting damage as far as I'm aware but localised parts of Chernobyl/Pripyat are said to 'uninhabitable for 20,000 years'.

Going back to Pacific kelp. As long ago as 2007 8 out of 9 Pacific kelp supplements failed a safety test for levels of arsenic.
So regardless of any radioactivity, or not, there's plenty of toxins swilling round the Pacific already.

.

That is the problem with trying to get meaningful amounts of iodine from refined kelp products.
