Posted on March 17, 2011

Here are two aerial photographs of Nuclear Power Plants in California. The first one is the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station in San Clemente on the border of Orange & San Diego Counties. The second one is the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant in Avila Beach in San Luis Obispo County. Both use seawater for cooling & are designed to withstand a 7.0 magnitude earthquake.
