Hundreds showed up to the annual Nuclear Regulatory Commission meeting Thursday night to hear an assessment of how safely the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station operated in 2010.

Residents—dozens of whom carried anti-nuclear energy placards—expressed their increased concerns that a disaster similar to the earthquake and tsunami that destroyed the Fukushima plant in Japan could cause a meltdown at San Onofre.

“We want to decommission San Onofre as soon as we can,” said protest organizer and San Clemente Green founder Gary Headrick. “We realize it’s a process, but we want the decision to be made right away.”

Headrick cited whistle-blower reportspast violations and other safety problems.
