Is nuclear power really worth this kind of risk?

Cripes I hope this turns out to be nothing.

The weather channel may not have updated the internet yet. This was breaking news and the anchors were handed a piece of paper to read. Just hang tight, I'm sure it will be coming out soon! At least on underground news anyway. Stay Safe

They have been having people evacuate in lots of places around here, and the Nuclear plant is 3 miles as the crow flies south of Brownville. Also, there are levees around the plant itself. So, I highly doubt it will affect the nuclear plant as it is right now, and here is hoping that it does not get worse. Here is and article from the Lincoln Journal Star (our local newspaper) on some of the rumors about Cooper and Fort Calhoun plants ...

Anyone want to do the math?

quote
"At Fort Calhoun, the plant's owner, the Omaha Public Power District, has erected flood barriers to protect the plant should waters rise to 1010"-1012". The cooling pool for spent fuel rods is at 1,038.5". The river was measured earlier this week at 1005.6".

The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant in eastern Nebraska, on the disappearing banks of the flooding Missouri River, has been at a Level Four emergency since early June, and the mainstream media is mysteriously quiet about it.

Except for local Omaha TV coverage, little has been reported, and the mainstream continues to minimize this story. An electrical fire in the basement on June 6 caused evacuation of the plant, and a large section was rendered inaccessible because of poisonous gases being emitted.

The next day, the rising river waters caused the plant’s basement to flood. Outspoken Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with long experience in containment, is warning of the perils and is particularly concerned about the possibility of a dam breaking and the complete wipeout of the plant.

He testified last year before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards on the potential of disasters spreading radioactive material far and wide. Considerable amounts of toxic waste have been accidentally spilled into the Missouri River in recent days, and the water (already surrounding the building) is expected to rise another five feet this summer.

Looks like all Hell is breaking loose!! First the levee in Nebraska and now, I just read another thread discussing how there were a couple large earthquakes in Alaska and impending Tsunami's on the heels of this. Looks like things are going to get much worse around here before they get better. My prayers are with everyone facing these tragedies! Try to be safe!
