    What was it Arnie Gundersen said at the last NPP flooding at Fort Calhoun? Oh, yeah, "Sandbags and nuclear power shouldn't be in the same sentence".

    Sandy likely to shut at least two New Jersey nuclear reactors

    By Scott DiSavino

    (Reuters) – At least two major New Jersey nuclear power plants are likely to shut on Monday as Hurricane Sandy makes landfall as a Category 1 storm and more plants could reduce power as the storm triggers precautionary safety measures.

    In Connecticut, Dominion Resources Inc already reduced the output of its Millstone 3 reactor from full power to about 75 percent as a precaution due to high water levels caused by Sandy, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) said.

    Sandy, centered over the Atlantic Ocean about 175 miles southeast of New York City, was expected to hit near Delaware and south New Jersey later Monday as a Category 1 hurricane with winds of up to 90 miles per hour.

    The nuclear reactors in Sandy's current path include units at Public Service Enterprise Group Inc's 2,332-megawatt (MW) Salem and 1,161-MW Hope Creek plants in New Jersey, which were likely to bear the brunt of the storm before it moves inland. …..

    Good of Dominion to at least start a slow down so that a shut down won't be so jarring. Thx for the updates arclight.

    We hope the inspectors have some plastic flex pipe, baling wire and duct tape handy…

    That is all they are using at Fuku… guess that is the official equipment to use at any nuke puke station when it starts leaking, melting down and through.

    Its not as though they had a good enough warning 1.5+ years ago from Fukushima. Where are the lessons learned? Exactly. None were learned except how to better deceive the public.

    10,000 feet are 1.894 miles.

    High numbers tell a false safety.
