    Re: Why is this not in the local media?

    I assume because according to the story nothing much really happened.

    That is why there is a no fly zone over the nuclear plant, because nothing is happening.

    Re: Why is this not in the local media?

    Can I finish this beer before I start to panic?

    I don't know about you, but beer is heavily involved in my panic planning.

    Re: Why is this not in the local media?

    Just saw this on NBC news. Sounds like the media was not aware of it until now. They also said that the plant had been shut down for refueling (previous to the flooding).

    Apparently I was already in panic mode when I sat down to read this thread.


    All truisms are false. All of them.

    Re: Why is this not in the local media?

    I prefer to panic over what has the potential to happen rather than what is actually happening. Keeps me on my toes.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Why is this not in the local media?

    I work in Iowa at a place that works with many of the plants in Nebraska including this OPPD plant. They've been working to prepare for Missouri River for several weeks. They haven't been worried about the flooding situation since they knew so long in advance that the water was coming.

    Re: Why is this not in the local media?

    There is no worries. Increased water intake could create problems with electrical power outages, but not melt down the nuclear plant. The radioactive rods need water to cool them anyways.
