So I have a question that I just don't see addressed here or on the news. What about the nuclear power plants on the east coast? Do you think that they can be damaged by this storm? I know that the Shippingport power plant that I live by was just recently found with cracks in it and I'm pretty sure that others are in bad condition due to the age of them. I am not worried about the effects on the Shippingport one but what about the ones on the coast. Do you think they can withstand this storm if it gets as bad as predicted.
If this has been posted before I apologize. I did a search and couldn't find anything.

Considering that this is not a catagory 3 or better hurricane I don't see any problems other than flooding. Not like the plants will be rattled to the ground by an earthquake. Lots of the plants have been through hurricanes before. In case you haven't noticed alot of the plants around and in certain areas have been quietly and slowly taken off line and shut down for various repairs or under the guise of repairs. Quite a few more than a few are in cold shut down right now. I suspect its because of the Louisianna issue's and pending East Coast Issue's that might come to pass. There are some serious issue's coming to a head on the East Coast. I would not want to be living in those area's period. The Earth and Mother Nature have alot in store for this planets inhabitants coming soon. This is no conspiracy. The earth has cleansed itself several times in the past. Just because were here now makes no difference to any of it. Its a cycle that cannot be changed or caused. It happens because it can.
