(CNN)Federal officials expressed confidence the six nuclear power plants in Hurricane Florence's path are safe, but some experts aren't so sure, warning that flooding and torrential rains could overwhelm their defenses. https://t.co/d9lwTQItcC— RNAnews antinuclear (@RNA_antinuclear) <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
This beffudles the imagination. Shutdowns don't always go "as planned", and one company owns 8
of these 12.
When reactors lose outside power, they go into an emergency mode, and if things go wrong....you can get a meltdown. But rather than be cautious, they want to milk these old rust buckets for every penny they can get.
LOL to "maximize value to shareholders" even though they may create an "exclusion zone" that almost kills our country.
Some of our compatriot citizen journalists have taken this idea and developed into detailed (and disgustingly failed) data on affecting plant performance related to storm preparedness and in particular to flood plain considerations.
The graphic shows data from the NRC Reactor Status page as of 11AM CST on Wed Sept 12, 2018
NRC says the plants WILL be shut down, but they said that during the Texas hurricane and flooding event, and the Nuclear Plants did not shut down.
