(Reuters) - A reactor at a nuclear power plant in Georgia remained out of service on Friday after it shut down unexpectedly earlier this week when a breaker failed. Carrie Phillips, a spokeswoman for Southern Nuclear, which operates the plant in Waynesboro, Ga., declined to say when the nuclear unit would be back in operation. But she said the company had replaced the breaker that tripped on Wednesday, as well as related equipment, and that plant employees were now "going through the process to look at our restart activities to return that unit to 100 percent."
The company has replaced the breaker and related electronics and installed monitoring equipment to help determine the root cause of the shutdown, Ledford said.

I wouldn't rule out parties with a covert agenda attempting to infiltrate the staff at any US nuclear plant, and eventually committing acts of sabotage like this to test and gage the systems in preparation for the installation of a virus, or system attack similar to what happened in Iran.
Maybe they are already infiltrated, and have been for some time?

Don't mis-understand me, I have no problem with them taking as long as they need to find the "root cause", or whatever the problem is they are working on, but I wanted to point out there is a problem, and something to keep an eye on. Some reports said they should have it up and running by Friday of last week, and it's not. I'm reporting this in case any other member might have more info than is being reported on the MSM. We all know we're lied to and fed "it's a routine issue, nothing to see here, you're safe sheeple" lines all the time.
Hopefully this is something small, no big deal, but it might be worth watching, just in case, for you skeptics...

The Fukushima plant was meant to be 100% safe NO MATTER WHAT!!!!
So a question for you all,
If you could vote on wether to wait 10 yrs for a new say windfarm to be built and in that time be without electricity for 4 hrs a day or have a nuclear plant go up next week with no change to your lifestyle what would you choose?
