I just found out there was a nuclear accident here in the USA.
According to the information given to me by the source, apparently it is around a level 3 accident according to the international scale for nuclear
accidents. That is my personal assessment since no one to my knowledge has rated this disaster at this time.
This apparently happened about 2 days or 3 days ago (??) and I haven't heard ANYTHING about it anywhere. Not even a whisper on ATS about it.
Website where I found the story.
Workers at the Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant in Port Gibson, Miss., last Thursday released a large amount of radioactive tritium directly into the
Mississippi River, according to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and experts are currently trying to sort out the situation. An
investigation is currently underway to determine why the tritium was even present in standing water found in an abandoned unit of the plant, as
well as how much of this dangerous nuclear byproduct ended up getting dumped into the river. Many also want to know why workers released the
toxic tritium before conducting proper tests. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...
The Mississippi Natchez Democrat reports that crews first discovered the radioactive water in the plant's Unit 2 turbine building after heavy
rains began hitting the area last week. Learn more: www.naturalnews.com...
This incident is apparently not even a week old.
The Mississippi River just got slammed with nuclear waste guys, in a bad way.
We don't know the volume of the contaminants, we don't know anything really.
I will provide background information on the nuclear site and on the chemical pollutant to aid others in helping to get a handle on this bad boy.

Naturally occurring tritium is extremely rare on Earth, where trace amounts are formed by the interaction of the atmosphere with cosmic
Tritium is an isotope of hydrogen, which allows it to readily bind to hydroxyl radicals, forming tritiated water (HTO), and to carbon atoms. Since
tritium is a low energy beta emitter, it is not dangerous externally (its beta particles are unable to penetrate the skin), but it is a
radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food or water, or absorbed through the skin.
Tritium can prove to be exceptionally hazardous when introduced into the largest river in North America, as countless people will be exposed
eventually. That Wikipedia article lists 4 sources for the health risks of tritium that are very credible and extremely well documented/researched.
Please give them a look if you don't already know about this stuff.
So WHY is the MSM ignoring our very own nuclear disaster in Mississippi USA? (Also LA because the power plant is on the border with that other state
as well) ??
OH I forgot. Because the truth sucks and it makes people not want to play along with this SICK and DISGUSTING joke of a society we have eh?
Go buy your garbage and watch your TV and forget about it right?
NOT ME! I am royally pissed.
I am just FED UP with the negligence of the nuclear industry and the sad fact that ONE SIMPLE MISTAKE can create hundreds of years of deadly
pollution. It's total BS and NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!
Sorry my OP is not perfect, but I will add more information as I uncover it. Any help is appreciated. I can't find anything about this on ATS, please
don't ignore it folks.
