Yeah, they're downplaying the accident. a level 2 alert in a 4 level alert system to me isn't a take it or leave it incident lol... even if it is just a leak in the reactor's coolant system. What else is in disrepair there - one might wonder....?
Both units at the facility are still in operation but PPL officials said crews are are still trying to stop a freon leak in the unit one reactor building.
Officials said they don't know how the leak started but they added the building does have a back-up cooling system so it is able to operate as it should.
