  • Nuclear Power Plant is adjacent to public beach
  • The 420-ton nuclear power plant was initially installed backwards by the firm Bechtel
A security computer at the San Onofre nuclear generating plant near San Clemente mysteriously shut down early Saturday morning, prompting the plant manager to issue an "unusual event" report.
"This was a very minor situation," said Pete Dietrich, chief nuclear officer for Southern California Edison, which operates the San Onofre plant. "At first blush, it involves a potential software glitch."
The last report of an "unusual event" at San Onofre was in April 2010 after an earthquake in Baja Mexico sent shockwaves through the San Clemente area, Alexander said.


Dietrich said the cause of the crash was still under investigation, but so far "there’s absolutely no indication there was any situation involving cyber security."
Due to strict safety-reporting requirements for nuclear plants, Dietrich said the event would be thoroughly investigated and reported to the Nuclear Energy Commission.
