I may be wrong, but I'd say you're lucky to be alive. For that matter, I think we might say the same for the rest of Southern California.

As someone who lives a sneeze away from TMI, I can tell you how this movie was received in my area...people were terrified.
The administrators at TMI were hardly forthcoming about the situation. Some of the advice we got now seems laughable; I was in HS at the time, and for our protection, the teachers closed all the windows...wow. My one social studies teacher went to see the movie, and when they got to the part about the meltdown destroying an area the size of PA, he said that people started screaming.
So this movie is pretty surreal for me; it seems that it was only dumb luck that kept the plant from a meltdown. Every now and then I drive past it, and it still seems as sinister as it did then. Watching "The China Syndrome" seemed like watching the local news.
