Update: Unusual wear on dozens of steam tubes at California nuke

Channel 6 in San Diego reported yesterday:

Two nuclear reactors at San Onofre remain off-line following a series of events that began earlier this week. 

In the latest development– federal regulators say unusual wear has been found on dozens of new tubes that carry radioactive water at the nuclear plant.  

This comes two days after a small leak was discovered in a tube, in a steam generator under the Southern dome known as unit 3.
