Nuclear power expert Dave Lochbaum will discuss the aftermath of the Fukushima earthquake and tsunami that occurred three years ago in Japan.

The speaking event will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at the Steynberg Gallery, 1531 Monterey St. in San Luis Obispo.

Lochbaum is the director of the Union of Concerned Scientists’ Nuclear Power Safety Project and co-author of the book “Fukushima: The Story of a Nuclear Disaster.” The event is sponsored by the Alliance for Nuclear Responsibility.

Lochbaum will discuss the effects the disaster has had on tens of thousands of Japanese, what lessons have been learned and what U.S. regulators are doing to better protect Americans who live near the nation’s nuclear plants, including Diablo Canyon.
