Watching Southern Storms and the Nuke Plants in the Path

Very heavy weather hitting the southeast now.

Flooding can severely impact nuke plants if they should lose power to the control room. They can only rely on back-up generators for a few hours. We will add new info here as it comes in … including outside Louisiana.

New_MAD

14 earthquakes hit Tennessee and Missouri in the New Madrid Seismic Zone in 24 hours – Is the Big One near?

What happens to nuke plants in case of a big quake? Evidently, nothing.
Idiots at DHS and FEMA think power loss / destruction at nuke plants in the event of a big New Madrid Fault earthquake is no problem!

2.2 Quake in Sweetwater Tenn. is close to 2 nuke plants

limeRAD Near Watts Bar and Sequoya nuke plants!

2.1 quake in the same area – RSOE REPORT

Last 10 quakes in the area.

These are small quakes but they may be precursors to larger ones.
The 2 nuke plants are old and have miles of piping that gets brittle from the Wigner effect. Lots of info on old, brittle piping in nuke plants when you look up the recently closed San Onofre plant in California.
It was the creaky old piping that caused the public outcry.

2.2 Quake at New Madrid(!) – and 2.1 Quake in Tenn. Near 2 Nuke Plants!

As usual the OK frack-quakes are still going off constantly. We don’t bother reporting them here. It will  be big news if they stop! But they aren’t helping either.
