San Onofre Tsunami Worst Case Scenario

The San Onofre Tsunami Wall, Built for a wave 14 feet over mean low tide. 

The projected worst case scenario for a tsunami in Southern California is a 10-12m run-up, or approximately 40 foot change in mean sea level. - Dana Point Tsunami Brochure.pdf

Did Edison not get the memo? You will know when they have learned from Fukushima, when they start building a real tsunami wall to protect San Onofre.


  1. Dana Point brochure shows a 40-foot change in mean sea level. You're absolutely right! Edison didn't get the memo.

  2. Fukushima proved that Nature can destroy any land based nuclear reactor, any place anytime 24/7/365!

    How would the USA pay for a Trillion Dollar Eco-Disaster here in SoCal?

    Where would everyone relocate to?

  3. When folks think Location, Location, Location, one of the most important things is:
    "How close am I and or are we downwind from a potential Nuclear Reactor Meltdown"

    Lets use Southern California as an example:

    What would happen to property values in SoCal if SORE, (San Onofre Reactor Emergency) suffered a meltdown like Fukushima for ANY reason, like an EQ (Earth Quake), terrorism, Tsunami, operator error or just "because it can"?

    Per the NRC: Fact Sheet on Nuclear Insurance and Disaster Relief

    In short, if there is more than $12 Billion in damages, residents are left holding a empty radioactive bag! This is only a tiny fraction of what it will cost in Fukushima, which is estimated to be about a Trillion Dollar Eco-Disaster!

    What is the value of all the homes and Commercial property downwind of SORE?
    Probably at least several TRILLION dollars...

    Here is a great graphic that will help everyone visualize what is downwind of any of the US reactors! NRDC Nuclear Fallout Map:
    Just click on a reactor and zoom in...

    Where will the US Government get the REST of the money if it happened at SORE (or a reactor where you live) next week, probably from Social Security and or Medicare? Where will people relocate to and for how long?

    In reality, ALL those affected are doomed! Tens of thousands are still living in nuclear refugee camps in Japan and it has been over a year since their triple meltdowns which are BTW still sending radioactive pollution Globally!

  4. Thanks for the fallout graphic CaptD! Have never seen it before.

    1. My pleasure!
