Breaking!! Potassium Iodide Tablets being handed out in PA for those living near nuclear plants
[link to perkiomenvalley.patch.com]

"The Pennsylvania Department of Health will be handing out potassium iodide tablets at several locations on Thursday, August 9, according to a press release sent out on Monday."

"Anyone who lives, works, and/or attends school within a ten-mile radius of one of the state's five nuclear plants (including Limerick Generating Station) can obtain four potassium iodide pills per adult in their household. There are smaller doses for children, based on age."


My question is, WHY?

Maybe there is more to the shutdown last month:

POTTSTOWN, Pa. - July 18, 2012 (WPVI) -- A reactor at the Limerick Nuclear Power Plant in Montgomery County was manually shut down on Wednesday morning after an electrical problem.

A spokesperson for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission told Action News that the Unit 1 reactor experienced an electrical fault in a transformer, which led to the manual shutdown.

four doses lasts about 4 days. that is nowhere near long enough to shelter in place, but if you get straight out of town it might help...

Not a good sign. What do they know?
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

anyone in northern va see that emergency broadcast alert test a few mins ago? oddly it mentioned a bunch of counties that weren't mine and said it was a test for anyone within 10 miles of the North Anna Nuclear station ( [link to en.wikipedia.org] which again doesn't apply to me.

Anyway, weird that I was reading this thread at the time...and never seen any nuclear plant ever referenced before on one of those alerts. wtf..

Yes, why indeed?
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.
