Today I read in the Salem-News.Com dated June 17, 2011, that President Obama has silenced the mainstream media from discussing the incidents at the nuclear plants in Nebraska in the form of a" Government Ordered News Black Out". It is reported that this action was taken because it reflects negatively on the "green" aspect of nuclear power that he wants to push.

Various sources outside the US are reporting that the incidents at Calhoun Nuclear Plant have now reached Level 4.

I don't know how to link sources here, but thought it was news worthy enough to post.

There is also a "No Fly Zone" around the Calhoun Plant indefinitely too. Sounds like more of the same. Regards to all and stay safe!

What nuclear incident?


Seriously, though, I honestly haven't heard anything about this and my parents have had the TV on Fox News all day so I should have caught something about it after all the times I've passed through the living room.

Here is your link my friend. Good find.


Report notes the “cover-up” of this nuclear disaster by President Obama is based on his “fantasy” of creating so-called green jobs which he (strangely) includes nuclear power into.

(MOSCOW ) - A shocking report prepared by Russia’s Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAAE) on information provided to them by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) states that the Obama regime has ordered a “total and complete” news blackout relating to any information regarding the near catastrophic meltdown of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant located in Nebraska.

Strange that this is coming out of Moscow and then through Oregon regarding Nebraska. The current design of nuclear power plants are a terrible idea. We should upgrade to thorium reactors asap.

This article: Salem-News that you have read can be traced back to Sorcha Faal, a known hoaxster.

I have family there. I was born in Omaha. I don't know what is going on at Ft. Calhoun, but I'm sure it isn't good. Sorcha Faal though, has started a firestorm of false information about a very serious situation.

I'll keep looking for any other sources but I'm pretty sure this is all BS. Sorry, but thanks for posting what could have been very important info


ETA: Here's the link to the article by Sorcha Faal: LINK

Good catch. I did not follow it that far. So this could be a hoax then.

You are joking right? You would hear news on Fox? They are the biggest Hoax for news there is. The National Enquirer has more accurate news.

A news black out order means that Fox, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS... ALL of them are ordered NOT to talk about an issue! Just a little FYI! Same thing happened in Japan.

Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant, just north of Omaha, Nebraska has sustained flooding and experienced at least one electrical fire that very briefly stopped cooling flow to their spent fuel storage pools and caused an evacuation of the plant. It appears to have been a close call, but nothing BEYOND a close call. The FAA also issued a NOTAM alert to close airspace around Fort Calhoun in direct relation to this incident. The NOTAM is dated June 6, 2011 and is easily located by any search engine.

The story is definitely real and it's definitely been white washed in coverage. In simpler times, I think it would have lead every newscast, nationwide for obvious reasons. Again though, my understanding in researching this for a short article I wrote on another site about it is that we've had a close call due to extreme flood conditions on the Missouri River. The Level 4 really is just ringing the alarm bell. It isn't necessarily something to begin packing the SUV for and heading for the hills.

Well the fire was real. The no fly zone (larger and more inclusive than the normal no-fly for a nuclear plant) is real, also. They did lose cooling to the spent fuel rods temporarily but they re-established the cooling shortly after.

I think this may be more serious than they are letting on but Sorcha Faal is a BS machine...

One of the worst things we as a nation can do is ASSUME. Time will tell I guess. I understand that there are hoaxes out there, but I also know that this is exactly what Japan did with their incidents. I hope that your family will be OK and unaffected by what's going on.
The FAA has also got a NO FLY Zone in effect around the Calhoun plant indefinitely as well. That is NOT a HOAX!
Thanks for the input. We can agree to disagree until we hear something one way or the other to confirm !

Thanks for filling me in.

And to the other guy: I don't care how biased Fox News is; I would expect to hear something like this on there. They probably did cover the story but I just haven't heard of it. I would imagine every news network would be covering this every few minutes, though.

I know the fire and no-fly zone are very real. I also agree that they are probably lying about how serious the situation is at both Ft. Calhoun and the Cooper Nuclear plants. It's just that Sorcha Faal is a really really bad source. He/she comes out with crazy BS stories all the time.

Thanks for your concern for my family, I appreciate it. I also truly appreciate you posting this because I am trying to stay on top of what's going on so I can get them out of there if need be.

Hi,
You know, the hard part is that if there IS a news black out because this is really serious, what we get is going to be sketchy at best. Until the govt fesses up, anyone who talks will be discredited even if they are reliable as a source.
I was not aware of the reputation of the person you mentioned as the source of this, but it is being picked up by other alternative news sources too.
I worry about my brother's family out in Nebraska and what they might face as well. We'll have to keep our fingers crossed and hope that it is just a bad hoax and nothing else. Thanks again for your input!

This article goes into the recent happenings a bit and even has a pic of the flooded plant..

Airspace Over Flooded Nebraska Nuclear Power Plant Still Closed

Apparently as late as of April this year the government was worried about the plant - in particular about its ability to deal with a flood.

Fort Calhoun's Nuclear Plant Under Scrutiny


OMAHA, Neb. -- Fort Calhoun's nuclear power plant is one of three reactors across the country that federal regulators said they are most concerned about.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials said Fort Calhoun's reactor is operating safely, but it's still on the shortlist because they want to make sure it's prepared to handle major emergencies, like flooding.

Last year, federal regulators questioned the station's flood protection protocol. NRC officials said they felt the Omaha Public Power District should do more than sandbagging in the event of major flooding along the Missouri river.


As the guy from Dirty Jobs says, "What could possibly go wrong?"

I hope that this is a hoax for the safety of your family too.

I think that what we need to do to see if this is real is find the report from the FAAE in Russia ourselves and see what it says if it does exist.

As for the other alternative news sources, so far the ones I've checked are just running the story from Sorcha Faal. I will keep looking.

I also want to say that this is a search for truth for a very serious situation. Please don't think that I am attacking you personally in any way. I just want to be sure about what is going on.

From: FAA

Number : FDC 1/6523
Issue Date : June 06, 2011 at 2231 UTC
Location : FORT CALHOUN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT BLAIRNE, Nebraska near OMAHA VORTAC (OVR)
Beginning Date and Time : Effective Immediately
Ending Date and Time : Until further notice
Reason for NOTAM : Temporary flight restrictions
Type : Hazards
Replaced NOTAM(s) : N/A
Pilots May Contact : MINNEAPOLIS (ZMP) Center, 651-463-5580

Affected Area(s)
Airspace Definition:
Center: On the OMAHA VORTAC (OVR) 316 degree radial at 26.1 nautical miles. (Latitude: 41º31'13"N, Longitude: 96º04'38"W)
Radius: 2 nautical miles
Altitude: From the surface up to and including 3500 feet MSL
Effective Date(s):
From June 06, 2011 at 2231 UTC
Until further notice

Operating Restrictions and Requirements
No pilots may operate an aircraft in the areas covered by this NOTAM (except as described).


Note the "no fly" applies to the area within 2 nautical miles from the plant, up to 3500 feet (approximately 2/3 mile) above MSL (mean sea-level). So a plane can 'fly' over the area as long as it's altitude is above 3500 feet.

Doesn't sound like a "NO FLY" to me.

I am going to add that Ft. Calhoun has an elevation of approximately 1100* feet above sea level.
This means planes can fly over the area as long as they are approximately 2500' (1/2 mile) above the ground.
Definitely close enough for helicopters and such to get photos.

* elevation sourced from NOAA / weather.gov:

Fort Calhoun NE 41.46°N 96.02°W (Elev. 1073 ft)

Here is a link to the Russian FAAE website translated by Google: FAAE News

I scanned through their news and releases and saw nothing about Nebraska. I may have missed something but it seems the report that is mentioned, does not exist.
