Original Message U.S. nuclear officials said the North Anna Power Station...lost off-site power and was using diesel generators to maintain cooling operations after an 5.9 earthquake hit the region today.

The North Anna plant, which was near the epicenter of Tuesday's quake, is reportedly located on a fault line.

Update: Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) Senior Scholar Bob Alvarez told the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) that the North Anna plant was built to withstand a 5.9-6.1 quake.
