Individuals reported hearing an explosion and seeing a flash and smoke near the front of the power plant around 10 p.m. Police officers and firefighters responded to the plant but did not manage to find the source of the reported explosion. The responders did not find anything out of the ordinary either.
Police and firefighters examined the exterior of the plant, along with a plant manager and a San Luis Obispo County Bomb Task Force representative. They then postponed the search until Monday morning.
PG&E did not report any problems or outages in the area.
The Morro Bay Police Department asks anyone with information regarding the incident to call (805) 772-6225.
