They have a thirty foot sea wall, or so they say. It looks like it is close to that, possibly 29 feet. It will not stand up to a 33 foot Tsunami. Saying that it hasn't happened in recent memory is not an excuse to put the lives of five million people at risk. As the Japanese crisis unfolds you are going to see that the total dead from their insane engineering fiasco will be in the Millions, though most of those people will be killed by cancer in years to come. The reactors at San Onofre are perfectly safe. The electrical systems for operating the reactors are not. Do you want to tell the people where on the photo the Diesel Generators are located? Could you assure the people that they would not be douched by a 33 foot tsunami runup from a 3 meter tsunami? The engineers who designed that site system should be put on public trial for incompetence.
