San Onofre Unit 3 reactor gets more inspections

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.

Officials said during trials last Wednesday, the tubes became so frail that tests found they could rupture and release radioactive water.

The Unit 3 reactor has been shut down since January 31 as a precaution following a water leak. Traces of radiation escaped, but officials said there was no danger to workers or residents nearby.
