Update: San Onofre criticized for slow reporting in ammonia leak

The Associated Press reported this afternoon:

Nuclear watchdog and environmental groups have criticized Southern California Edison for how long it took to notify the media and public of an ammonia leak at a nuclear power plant that led to an emergency alert.

The public was not alerted until more than an hour after the leak began Tuesday. A phone line reserved for media calls was for a time not working properly and officials with Edison, which operates the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, did not return multiple emails and calls from The Associated Press until more than two hours after the leak started.
