The tsunami advisory that woke up the West Coast on Jan. 15 should serve as a wake-up call on flooding dangers at the nuclear waste storage facility in San Onofre. 

The facility is 100 feet from the beach. During high tides, waves crash into an aging bulkhead that separates the sea from the storage vault – a kind of crypt that holds 3.6 million pounds of deadly, radioactive waste. According to Southern California Edison, the sprawling, concrete vault will flood from a storm at high tide.
