On a serious note, they are following procedure.

Something to watch, but not panic over.

Wont stop nuke whargarble from being posted while same people complain about their gadgets not getting charged...

Indeed. Farkushima threads taught us that. Still, until radiation does leak and affects or at least frightens New Yorkerd this is a non story. Same as the people killed in the West virginia blizzards. Not Farkworthy.

So, should be be as not-worried as we were when nothing happened at Fukushima or at San Onofre?
 
2012-10-30 04:03:48 AM
Somehow, I doubt this'll be much of a problem. The thing about Fukushima is that it was hit by an earthquake and a tsunami...neither of which they had time to really prepare for.
 
2012-10-30 04:05:04 AM
So everything is working as intended and there is no danger to anyone?



EVERYONE PANIC.

The thing about Fukushima was that for three weeks afterward the government and corporate bureaucrats fumed and fiddled and covered their asses and buried their heads. Finally, the well-understood and predicted disaster happened. Fukushima was preventable -- even long after the fact.

Because there is no danger to anyone? The plant was already shut down for refueling and floodwaters are receding.


But please continue your regularly scheduled irrational panic about anything nuclear.

Where did you get that? I was simply asking why it was a non-story. I don't understand that much about nuclear power plants and was only looking for some clarification for the statement.

But, thanks for being a douche.

It's in TFA

The reactors are in shutdown. The spent fuel pool is still working normally, but if the water rises 7 more feet, a backup system would have to be used to keep the spent fuel pool filled. They have multiple backups in place for this scenario.

The storm surge is going to start dropping as soon as high tide has passed, and that's... nowish.

Err, six more inches, not seven more feet.

And the spokesman was VERY vague on what happened then.

STILL not much of a story.

Unless, of course, you are in the affected area of WV. Then it seems pretty damn Farkworthy.

After all, We can't all be dumb enough to live near massive fault zones.

It's a non story to anyone in the business. Yes, an Alert is serious business, but it's not a Fukishima by a long shot... We do have backups to our normal supplies, and backups for those... Even if the fit hit the shan and they lost it, they still have 25 hours to lower the water level and replace the pump/motor with a spare that's probably in a warehouse wrapped in plastic, and that's just until the water gets hot enough to start boiling... Ever have a pot that boiled down a little too much on your stove? What did you do? Add a cup or 2 of water and watched it calm right down... If you have that issue here, you can dump in water and it'll do just that...

Plus it's just a little thing called federal law that requires them to call it an Alert. All that does is put things in place and notify people who will be needed to help out possibly... Would you rather not know about it?

And this is just another example of the press shouting "Fire" in a crowded theater to get ratings... And it's the one thing that the people in this business can't stand...

Oops! Read that wrong. Yeah, it was if the water rose half a foot more up to 7 feet.

It's "the boy who cried wolf," big media.

You always hype storms to oblivion and back.

This probably means the nuclear reactor got damp.

styckx: For fark sakes. This is a non-story.


Exactly. The media has completely lost their freaking minds. I cannot believe how they are hyping this storm. Even the slightest damage is being called "devastation". This is just a big, wet blustery storm and nothing more. It is more interesting as a meteorological oddity than anything else.

styckx: For fark sakes. This is a non-story.


This. If the circuit breaker for the lights in the plant breakroom had tripped they would have issued an "alert"

Hubby rode out the storm there along with a ton of extra personel pulled in to help, they were well prepared for the storm. The plant was not in any danger, and the worst that could have happened was a switch to the well rehearsed backup plan. These guys (and gals) are so good at what they do.

But fear mongering has a huge cost as the plants come under attack from special interests, and Oyster Creek is scheduled to be shut down. That means that all of the many hundreds of employees (including my husband) will be out of work and need to relocate, and the whole area will suffer from the loss of these high paying science and tech jobs. Articles like these have real effects on actual families and skew public opinion in a way that makes it unfavorable politically to authorize new plower plants and create new jobs.
