Lowest state of emergency, but still, isn't that how Fukishima started?




UNUSUAL EVENT DUE TO SITE CONDITIONS PREVENTING PLANT ACCESS

"A hazardous event has resulted in on site conditions sufficient to prohibit the plant staff from accessing the site via personal vehicles due to flooding of local roads by Tropical Storm Florence."

Notified DHS SWO, FEMA OPS, and DHS NICC. Notified FEMA NWC, NuclearSSA, and FEMA NRCC via email.

So what do you think then?

Is this doom or something less sinister?

Don't know, no one does for sure.

They had plenty of warning and time to prepare so one would assume it's safe.

That was my understanding too.

According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a national oversight organization for nuclear plants, the Brunswick site has seen 10 cited infractions since 1996. All infractions were of low safety significance, with the last one being in 2011. Two of the infractions resulted in the site paying fines in 1996 and 2004. Numerous safety procedures are in place at the plant that involve every employee. For example, operators train in a simulator room for one week each month and undergo constant testing. The Brunswick site is home to the first digital simulator in the country to actually be used by operators for training. The nuclear station is built to withstand any natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, floods and earthquakes.According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a national oversight organization for nuclear plants, the Brunswick site has seen 10 cited infractions since 1996.

Advanced knowledge of potential problems hasn't stopped many a disaster.

As long as they have cooling...

And they'll continue to have cooling..........unless, I guess, the plant becomes flooded? But its built to withstand floods.

What could possibly go wrong?

I'm in NJ. Not far enough.

I remember the stories about Chernobyl my family in Italy told me. They couldn't consume milk for a while. Yep, that far.

Thanks for posting this.

Is the MSM reporting this? I haven't seen anything.

I looked at a couple articles. The crisis seems to be because the employees can't reach the plant due to flood water . That's why asked if they had a boat.

The risk was known. I posted an article about this possibility 6 days ago here:

Hoping the emergency is resolved quickly and without loss of any life.

I was stationed in Germany during Chernobyl. They gave us iodine tablets for 2 weeks, and we were strongly encouraged not to eat the local food for a month. Especially dairy.

Hopefully the people in that area have those tablets in case they are needed. Last time this was even a remote possibility they went from an average of $10-15 per packet to as much as a $1000 per packet on Ebay.

Main problem in Fukushima was keeping the cooling pumps running, the emergency power generators were on the first level and got flooded, and battery power only lasts for less that a day....
