Virginia nuke plant has lost offsite power after quake, generators being used to cool reactors — “As far as we know, everything is safe” says NRC

Nuclear engineer: NRC now says reactors and containments have breached and released plutonium off-site — “Much worse” than if from spent fuel pools (VIDEO)

NRC: Most likely that chunks of radioactive materials “were from the reactor cores rather than spent fuel pools”  — “Much worse” than if from SFPs, says nuclear engineer (VIDEO)

Report: Nuclear fuel fragments found over a mile away were “ejected from the reactor cores in those explosions” not spent fuel pools, according to NRC (VIDEO)
