Probably much more vulnerability out there....
Years back, I did an interesting study on a theoretical terrorist attack to San Onofre Generating Station in Southern California, before new units of the nuclear power plant came on line. I got all the info I needed from the public library and the Environmental Impact Report. Although it is now in the process of decommissioning, back in 1980's it appeared to be very vulnerable to sabotage and terrorism.  The ocean intake cooling tubes were wide open and could easily be compromised. Without adequate cooling water the plant would have been toast. My only credentials to do such a study is that I was a commercial diver a few years prior.
