A former federal inspector has urged regulators to shut down California's last remaining nuclear power plant until it can be determined whether the facility can stand up to an earthquake off the Central Coast.

Diablo Canyon is California’s sole remaining nuclear plant.

Michael Peck, former senior resident inspector at Diablo Canyon, made his case to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in a confidential July 2013 document, a copy of which was released Monday by the environmental group Friends of the Earth.
