While the oil and gas industry, and shipping have largely shutdown, Waterford Nuclear Power Station in Killona is operating at 100%, with no concern for risk of levee failure or other hazard: https://archive.li/ZAtJz

https://www.nhc.noaa.gov



Waterford Nuclear Power Station is on the Mississippi River, apparently below river level, but protected by a levee (unless the levee fails) and by some amount of waterproofing. It almost faces the Bonnet Carre spillway and is near Lake Ponchartrain. The official map has the storm surge stopping right next to the nuclear power station, which appears rather arbitrary – unless because of the levee. The levee has been strained because of Trump appointee Richard Kaiser’s refusal to open the Morganza spillway. It’s purpose is to reduce strain on the levee. The Morganza was built almost 70 years ago so it could be opened and used: https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/07/11/tropical-storm-barry-key-messages-storm-surge-rain-endangers-levees/
