Bombed levee, major flooding event above Cooper Nuclear Site (Video)


www.examiner.com



The bombed levee near Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station in Nebraska Friday caused a more than significant flood event downriver according to County Attorney Matt Wilbur, as it rose the swollen and raging Missouri River three to four inches when only "a half-inch rise is significant." Downriver 70 miles south of Omaha, Nebraska is Cooper Nuclear Facility, still online and posing a bigger threat than Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station, but no Fukushima according to

I know this is from the examiner, but I have also found evidence of deleted stories from the Omaha World-Herald
here www.omaha.com...
and from a little research it sounds as if someone blew a private levee upstream from the plant which may have caused some increased stress on the Gavins point dam.

Examiner or not its worth a look.

Honestly I wish I could go up there and take a look around, this is being downplayed so much by every news and official organization out there who are telling us, "Its all fine" Seriously though, I dont know what to think, after seeing pictures of the water being too close for comfort I think its a much bigger situation than they are leading us to believe.

If something bad does occur the consequences could be nationwide considering the Missouri River drains into the Mississippi, which in turn drains into the already battered Gulf of Mexico.

How many here thought at least for a moment these kind of events in nuclear plants are not provoked but just let happen? Are we going to see a third and fourth nuclear disasters?

Turning on the conspiracy switch, maybe the elite is trying the sell us another idea, making look nuclear plants worse that they are will certainly push general opinion in one direction. Fukushima in Japan plus this one in USA are just too much stupidity for half year only.

"The county was aware previously that a group of citizens wanted to breach the levee to drain pooling water back into the river.
Wilber said the citizens – who operate Vanmann No. 30 Levee – built the levee higher after seeing inundation maps from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in May in an attempt to keep water out. But when a natural breach occurred in Harrison County on June 25, water began to pool behind the new fortified levee.
The county was notified that a group of citizens wanted to breach the levee on June 26.
Pottawattamie County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Theulen met with the group that evening and informed them that they would likely need the permission of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, before such an activity could take place."

sounds like some folks got tired of the alphabet agency game

If the people running the Cooper plant don't shut it down and there is a catastrophic failure that releases radiation, I think they should be forced to be the first ones inside the reactor performing the "Fukishima 50" tasks - until they melt.

Keeping this plant running is negligence in the extreme.

Right brother, and that will confirm their bad intentions.

I am so sick of hearing of the "incidents" from nuclear plants. As always the ones promoting this "clean" energy are never the ones who take the fall.

I would rather have a hundred coal fired plants release CO2 than to have the fallout of one compromised nuclear plant.

Ft. Calhoun NGS was shut down prior to the flood occuring. They were in the process of changing out fuel rods. When the flooding was being talked about, they decided to keep the plant offline.

I thi6nk ge is talking about Cooper plant not the Fort Calhoun plant.

The current major flooding along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers is understood by many, but few have yet to grasp the magnitude of the flooding involved in a visual sense. In that vein of thought, I wish to help, to better explain what the flooding means in a broader perspective by providing a video link to a video that will I feel help others understand what the flooding looks like and what it means.

While many threads have adequate videos or links to refer to the source of the coverage being mentioned, few have been able to find a comprehensive source to show what the flooding is doing in visual terms that needs to be seen to fully understand the magnitude and far reaching impact of the flooding that has taken place.

In an effort to contribute additional references for this thread, I want to provide a link to a video that while the running time is 40 minutes long, it is as of today, the best comprehensive look at what the flooding has done to major cities, highways, bridges, rail roads and the whole area as a whole.

Please take a look at the video. It is an easy video to watch because it is made to show you what the flooding has done to date and is in my opinion the best video to date that shows what the major flooding means in a visual sense for the geography effected by all the flooding. Take a look and begin to understand that this problem is huge and extremely problematic in many dangerous and public safety areas of concern.

I belong to an Enduro riding club in Iowa about 25 miles south of Omaha. I had to go 2.5 hours out of my way just to get to the place which normally takes me about 45 mins to reach. The flooding south of Omaha along I-29 is simply unreal. There is a ridge bluffs about 220 feet above the plains and I took one of the trails to an overlook area.
Water as far as I could, especially to the south down towards Brownsville, water is from the river all the way to the bluffs, it was simply mind boggling.

herer is the distance of the river to the bluffs. The red arrow was the lookoput point I was on looking southwest towards NE City, the yellow lines indicate land that is currently under water (roughly)
its like all up and down the river in this area between Omaha and Missouri.

It doesn't matter that Ft. Calhoun's reactor/s has been shut down. It is still very dangerous. It is the spent fuel rod repository for the entire state of Nebraska. There are over 20 years of spent rods on the premises. They are still radioactive even though they are spent. The newer rods are still radioactive enough to cause a major incident. They are what need to be water cooled and if the cooling system fails because of the flooding it could be a major disaster. Just FYI


As for Cooper Nuclear Plant, man I hope things don't get worse. I have family in Omaha. I was also born there.

I am glad you brought this up because this is the media's main diversion tool, "the reactor has been shut down in anticipation of the flood, and also for repairs," but many overlook the fact that Ft. Calhoun stores all of the spent fuel for many plants in those surrounding states.

Also I would like to thank those who are local to the flooding who can help those of us to understand the scale of this.

Well CNN and other Western news networks are sure doing a fine job on covering up the Nuclear Site by claiming it poses no threat.

Just noticed this got moved to fragile earth, maybe it will see some attention over here.
