SLOW Breaking/HOT: Nebraska Nuclear Plant: Emergency Level 4 & About to Get Worse – June 14, 2011

Fort Calhoun near Omaha, Nebraska

“On June 6, 2011, the Fort Calhoun pressurized water nuclear reactor 20 miles north of Omaha, Nebraska entered emergency status due to imminent flooding from the Missouri River. A day later, there was an electrical fire requiring plant evacuation.

Then, on June 8th, NRC event reports confirmed the fire resulted in the loss of cooling for the reactor’s spent fuel pool. The discussion includes specific details of the technical failures at Fort Calhoun, the risks of coolant loss at overcrowded “spent” fuel pools, and the national hazards of nuclear facilities along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, and other water sites during the current period of floods and climate change.”

Lots of Video (unable to post it here) through the 14th of April, 2011 and details at link below.

Why the HELL is this NOT FRONT PAGE and TOP OF NEWSCASTS? Today, the 16th of June, Brian Williams gave a one minute synopsis with an introduction calling it A FOOTNOTE!

GE OWNED NBC/UNIVERSAL (Just sold to Comcast) and builds Nuclear Power plants. Any Connection? What about the rest of Corporate Media?
