JUST IN -- Alert declared at Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in NJ due to rising water
Alert declared at Oyster Creek nuclear power plant
Posted on 10-30 at 01:48:35 CST

[As released by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission]

NRC CONTINUES TO MONITOR HURRICANE SANDY;
ALERT DECLARED AT OYSTER CREEK PLANT;
NO PLANTS SHUT DOWN DUE TO THE STORM

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is continuing to monitor impacts from
Hurricane Sandy on nuclear power plants in the Northeastern United States, including an Alert
declared at the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in New Jersey. The plant, currently in a
regularly scheduled outage, declared the Alert at approximately 8:45 p.m. EDT due to water
exceeding certain high water level criteria in the plant’s water intake structure.

An Alert is the second lowest of four NRC action levels. The Alert was preceded by an
Unusual Event, declared at approximately 7 p.m. EDT when the water level first reached a
minimum high water level criteria. Water level is rising in the intake structure due to a
combination of a rising tide, wind direction and storm surge. It is anticipated water levels will
begin to abate within the next seve [link to www.bnowire.com]

Re: JUST IN -- Alert declared at Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in NJ due to rising water
WASHINGTON - The nation's oldest nuclear power plant is on alert after waters from a colossal storm reached high levels.

Oyster Creek in Lacey Township, N.J., was already offline for regular maintenance before Sandy, a superstorm downgraded Monday night from a hurricane, slammed the East Coast.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says an "unusual event" was declared around 7 p.m. when water reached a high level. The situation was upgraded less than two hours later to an "alert," the second-lowest in a four-tiered warning system.

Federal officials say all nuclear plants are still in safe condition. They say water levels near Oyster Creek, which is along the Atlantic Ocean, will likely recede within a few hours.

Oyster Creek went online in 1969 and provides 9 percent of New Jersey's electricity.

Hope Creek Nuclear plant is also in Jersey on the Delaware bay. Both reactors of the flawed Fukushima BWR design. Power outages and rising waters are a very bad combination here.

..“Water level is rising in the intake structure due to a combination of a rising tide, wind direction and storm surge. It is anticipated water levels will begin to abate within the next several hours,” the NRC says.

The NRC added that as of 9 p.m. EDT, no nuclear power plants had to shut down as a result of the storm, adding that “all plants remain in a safe condition, with emergency equipment available if needed and NRC inspectors on-site.”

The government agency noted that the NRC has inspectors providing 24-hour coverage of all plants that could be affected by the storm, including Oyster Creek; Salem and Hope Creek, in Hancocks Bridge, N.J.; Calvert Cliffs, in Lusby, Md.; Limerick, in Limerick Township, Pa.; Peach Bottom, in Delta, Pa.; Three Mile Island, in Middletown, Pa.; Susquehanna, in Salem Township, Pa.; Indian Point, in Buchanan, N.Y.; and Millstone, in Waterford, Conn.

Re: JUST IN -- Alert declared at Oyster Creek nuclear power plant in NJ due to rising water
Nuclear power plants are built to withstand hurricanes, airplane collisions and other major disasters, but safety procedures call for plants to be shut down when hurricane-force winds are present at the site, or if water levels nearby exceed certain flood limits.

At the Salem and Hope Creek plants in Hancocks Bridge, N.J., which together produce enough power for about 3 million homes per day, officials were watching for sustained winds of 74 mph or greater that would trigger taking the plants offline. The nearby Delaware River posed another hazard if water levels exceed 99.5 feet, compared with a normal level of 89 feet.

Joe Delmar, a spokesman for Public Service Enterprise Group Inc., said that only essential employees had been asked to report to work but that current projections were that the plants would not have to close.

One of the units at Salem had already been offline due to regular refueling and maintenance. That was also the case at Oyster Creek, a 636-megawatt plant in Lacey Township, N.J., roughly 60 miles east of Philadelphia.

In Lusby, Md., the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant was operating at full power — enough to power more than 1 million homes. Additional staff, both onsite and off, were called in to prepare for the storm. Safety officials there will take the plant offline if sustained winds ex [link to www.cbsnews.com]

Thanks, Radchick! An alert has been issued which, to highlight their guide--

"Alert: Events are in process or have occurred which involve an actual or potential substantial degradation of the level of safety of the plant or a security event that involves probable life threatening risk to site personnel or damage to site equipment because of intentional malicious dedicated efforts of a hostile act. Any releases are expected to be limited to small fractions of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Protective Action Guideline exposure levels."

This needs to be closely monitored!

The Consolidated Edison Company Building, designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh, was built between 1910 and 1914. The building, at 4 Irving Place, takes up the entire block between East 14th and 15th Streets and Irving Place and Third Avenue, and was originally built for the Consolidated Gas Company, although its predecessor companies, such as the Manhattan Gas Light Company, were located at the same address as early as 1854. The new building's location had been the site of the Academy of Music, New York's third opera house,[6][7] as well as the original Tammany Hall building.[8]

Warren & Wetmore's 26-story tower – topped by a "Tower of Light" designed to look like a miniature temple and capped by a bronze lantern which lights up at night[6] – was added between 1926 and 1929.

Does anyone else find it strange that the US keeps getting hit by "catastrophic" storms? One after another. One of the following scenarios must be responsible:

a) a foreign nation attacking the US with a weather making machine.
b) aliens attacking the US with advanced technology.
c) God attacking the US for all of the evil that originates here.
