The nuclear plant at Diablo Canyon, approximately 15 miles from San Diego, operated for 18 months ending last year without even a backup system in place while maintenance was performed. Let me restate that, a nuclear plant of older design than those at Fukashima and situated on a major fault within 50 miles of 20 million people, operated for 18 months ending last year with no system in place should primary cooling functions fail. Nothing.

Ah, SONGS nuclear plant - I remember it well. Seemed quite a tidy place when I visited it in 2001.

I looked for confirmation of that report - couldn'd find one.
