More the Merrier at Diablo Canyon

Article


Yes Virginia, they have discovered another fault at scenic Diablo Canyon. Does it mean anything? Probably not, since the place is total rock rubble. At least they are looking! I've never seen a company so devoted to earthquakes. They even have in-plant accelerometers that actually work! Can't say that for anybody else.

It's the 50th anniversary of the Springhill Mine Disaster. One of the survivors pointed out that "mining experts" from the city had decreed that areas left uncut to support the galleries should be lined up instead of staggered.

Yes, I read that. Probably wrote something, but I can't remember.
