Surely you jest. Of course they did the same thing.
California has two reactor complexes located near or on fault lines. They are built to lesser specifications than the ones in Japan. One is also near the sea. Ironically one of them is named El Diablo. i.e. "The Devil". (one thinks they could have at least looked this up)
Closer to home, there is an old reactor right on the coast of NC, right in the middle of hurricane alley, that is also of the same design of the one that blew up in Japan.
