Defunct Nuclear Power Plant on California Coast Is a ‘Fukushima Waiting to Happen’ –

San Onofre, CA – A nuclear power plant in Southern California that was shut down in 2012 continues to leak radioactive material and poses a threat to nearby communities.

The aging San Onofre, located in San Clemente, CA, was shut down in 2012 amid a leak that occurred due to malpractice.
