Is it like with Def Con, where lower is better? Higher? On a scale of what, five? A hundred? Should I go take a shower?

You only have to worry when the officials tell you not to worry. Then you need to take a shower somewhere upwind.

Drove by there today. Saw a crane and some work being done but no strange glow or mushroom cloud.

It’s San Onofre and it’s about 30? Miles north of downtown San Diego, and sits right on the Pacific Coastline off of Interstate 5.

From what I heard on KCAL 9, its an ammonia leak, not anything to do with radiation.

Always a prudent course of action. If you’re in a public place, start pulling fire alarms and screaming your head off.

Here is a link to the International Nuclear Events Scale.

Looks like it is below “accident”.

I wonder what they had rated Fukushima?

I covered an ammonia leak back in newspaper days. Ammonia leaks can be nasty.

I no longer believe “authorities” when they declare a condition or alert. So you also believe them when they say its nothing to worry about?

“So you also believe them when they say its nothing to worry about?”

Never seen that one around here. I live in Tallahassee, 50 miles from the coast. Anytime there’s a hurricane in the gulf some idiot in the state sends out an email to thousands of state employees saying, “A hurricane is coming. Go fill your gas tanks now as there will be a gas shortage.” This creates mass panic. When thousands of state employees and the people they call and forward the email to go to fill their tanks (while still on the clock, I’m told) then, guess what!? There IS a gas shortage. It will be a week, minimum, before the gas stations have gas again.

Due to near universal fear of liability everybody defaults to calling the worst possible outcome. So, I’m not concerned that if they say; nothing to worry about.

I love San Juan Capistrano and Sarducci’s. We live on the East Coast so every visit to that area is a joy.

Southern California Edison tells CBS 2 that the incident is “an ammonia leak that is being contained.” The leak occurred in a steam system used to drive the station’s turbines, SCE said. The leak is not nuclear.

The last sentence says it all. No big deal here. Not even worth the time of day.

If we see that glow again in the morning; time to panic.

Actually, it is in Camp Pendleton which runs about 17 miles along the coast from Oceanside in San Diego County to San Clemente in Orange County. The power plant sits on the coast near the northern end of Camp Pendleton and within Pendleton’s boundaries.
