If Japan can have an intensity 9.0 earthquake so can California. The global warming phenomena can be raise the stakes to a much higher level so to be safe the seismic study should determine if the existing nuclear plants can withstand a level 10 earthquake intensity. Remember, even the Japanese authorities admitted that they never expected their nuclear plants to undergo severe damage from the earthquake and tsunami but it happened.

Another major earthquake is long overdue in California, energy is building up at the major faults and it is not being relieved. When the next one strikes the extent of damage on nuclear plants could be catastrophic.
