A nuclear power plant in central Virginia has lost offsite power in the wake of a 5.9 earthquake centered northwest of Richmond, Va., U.S. nuclear officials said. The North Anna Power Station, which has two nuclear reactors, is now using four diesel generators to maintain cooling operations. The plant automatically shut down in the wake of the earthquake.

Can anyone find anything on these plants? I am working so I can do anything from here but I really needed to post this.

Peace

I don't really think they had 3 quakes, mainly because they were reported at the exact same millisecond. An unusual event is the lowest rated event in the scale.
