The reactor at the Fermi 2 nuclear power plant was shut down Monday evening after a coolant leak was detected, officials said. [...] the Monroe County plant was not evacuated and the leak posed no danger to the health or safety of plant workers or the public. [...] the plant was shut down without complications and nonessential workers were allowed to leave for the day.[...]
She added that the leaked coolant, which is mostly water, was not released into the environment.
“We have several indications that it is not radioactive coolant,” Mr. Austerberry said several hours after the shutdown, but he was unable to give details about the basis for the initial assessment. “We believe it is a leak from a non-radioactive cooling system.”

And right after terrorists take control of all the Nuclear reactors in the US on the Fox show 24 that just aired minutes ago.
