Why do they build these things in stupid places? The people building these things need to listen to the people that design them. It's a money game, It's cheaper to build them by the water so they don't have to pump it very far.

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 ...
What about Three Mile Island?
Like I've said countless times, neither Chernobyl nor Fukushima were modern nuclear reactors and neither were up to safety standards. Both disasters could have been averted if proper safety measures had been taken.
The power generated from a levee breach is far less than that of a tsunami. Also, unless we have total meatheads working at this plant, which I highly doubt, they will have seen this coming and by now should have some type of plan in place. Again, this is far different from an unexpected tsunami careening across the entire plant.
