CORRECTED (OFFICIAL)-PG&E CA Diablo Canyon 1 reactor remains at 50 pct power (April 13)

 (Corrects headline and first paragraph in April 13 story to
show Diablo Canyon 1 reactor remains at 50 percent power, and
had not ramped up to full power, following clarification from
the U.S. NRC. Also corrects second paragraph to say Diablo
Canyon 2 was at 100 percent, and not 50 percent power.)
    April 13 (Reuters) - PG&E Corp's         1,122-megawatt Unit
1 at the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant in California was at
50 percent power as of early Friday, unchanged from Thursday,
the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said.
    Meanwhile, Diablo Canyon 2 was operating at 100 percent
power.
