Street testing in Los Osos and Morro Rock are the subjects of Good Question tonight. Valerie Wallace of Los Osos and Jennifer Rogers of Cambria both want to know: What kind of testing is being done on the roads in Los Osos?
PG&E is doing seismic studies to analyze earthquake fault zones in the Diablo Canyon and greater San Luis Obispo areas. Trucks send low energy sound waves into the ground that reflect off different layers of earth. PG&E does not think the work can trigger an earthquake. The land studies will wrap up in December... Ocean floor work will follow.
Tim Byars of Morro Bay wants to know: How did Morro Rock get it's name?
No one is quite sure, but one historian says it was named by explorer Juan Cabrillo in 1542 because it looked like the turban worn by a North African Moor. It was originally spelled with one "r." In Spanish, the word "morro" with two "r"s refers to a high land mass above a harbor that can hold fortifications.
