On October 23, 2077, disposal trucks were sent out from the San Onofre nuclear power plant to dispose of nuclear waste. However, due to the Great War breaking out, drivers instead drove to Searchlight, where they abandoned the trucks in a fire station. Only two trucks would fit, so the third headed for Cottonwood Cove where it appears the driver tried to illegally dump it down into the cove.
San Onofre is mentioned only in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) is a real nuclear power plant on the coast of California on the San Onofre State Beach, just south of the city limits of San Clemente, just over the San Diego County line, near Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, north of San Diego, California.
