Before and after the Japanese earthquake, and our nuclear sites in CA

California’s two nuclear power plant locations: Diablo Canyon and San OnofreUpdated satellite photos from Japan, before and after the earthquake, including the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant. From the NY Times. Imagery from GeoEye and Digital Globe.  FYI, California’s two nuclear power plants, the dual-unit Diablo Canyon and dual-unit San Onofre systems, produce about one-fifth of the state’s total electricity generation. San Onofre is featured in a number of films, including Naked Gun. Both are apparently designed to withstand earthquakes of 7 or 7.5 magnitude, depending on who you ask.
