stock here: It's a field day so no extra time to elaborate on this story. I did predict days back that they would NOT pre-emptively shut down any reactors.
As we approach the 10th anniversary of Fukushima...the nukists have learned little.
They failed to "winterize" and yet every human with IQ above 60 will winterize their car.
Perhaps they learned that they can have gross negligence, destroy the Pacific, cause at least $1T in damage and then use their political machine and media to just "carry on".
On Monday, the nuclear power plant had to shut one of two reactors down, halving its 2,700 megawatts of generating capacity. The plant, which operates on a 12,200-acre site west of the Colorado River about 90 miles southwest of Houston, provides power for more than two million homes.
On Monday, South Texas Nuclear Power Station posted "Event
Number: 55104" on the Nuclear Regulatory Commission website explaining
low steam generation was due to the loss of water pumps. In response,
reactor one was shutdown.
