Matt Whalen, San Clemente
As a resident of San Clemente, I received a notice from Southern California Edison with instructions on what to do in the event of an emergency at SONGS. This includes the following paragraph, “If you are directed to evacuate, please stay calm. Get in your car and drive away from the plant to a location outside the cities of San Clemente, Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano. Be sure to follow the directions of law enforcement officials as traffic patterns are subject to change under these circumstances.”
I can only think that whoever wrote this has never driven Southern California freeways under normal circumstances, has no understanding of human behavior in emergency situations and has no comprehension of the magnitude of the emergency that would require evacuations from these areas.
SoCal Edison, please don’t insult our collective intelligence with such asinine statements.
