The plant declared an "alert" as water levels rose at its canal, experienced a power outage and lost a portion of its warning alarm system

An NRC statement noted that Oyster Creek remains in “safe condition” and the federal agency anticipates that water levels will abate within several hours.

The plant experienced a power disruption in the station’s switchyard. The station’s two backup diesel generators activated immediately and continue to provide a stable supply of power to the station’s systems, a news release from Oyster Creek said. There are more than two weeks of diesel fuel on site.

A combustion turbine engine is also being utilized along with the generators to provide energy for water pumps that cool the fuel stored in the reactor until normal power sources are restored, a news release from Christie’s office said.
