10 Mile Mandatory Evacuation Area Around Ft. Calhoun Nuke Plant (but don't worry - be happy)

Nothing to see here. Move along. Go shopping or something...

Los Alamos

Yesterday I spoke with a man who is a retired nuclear engineer...he was a prominant person in the NRC for 6 years (back in the day) and spent a lifetime around nuke plants including Oak Ridge. I asked him about Ft. Calhoun and his thoughts...he explained that he had spent a lot of time at that facility and isn't too concerned with what's going on there. The only concern for him would be the diesel gen sets...and they are set up in such a manner that they will not flood during this sized event. I asked about stored material in pools or dry...he said the dry-storage stuff is in crypt-type containers and are sealed air-tight and waterproof.
The situation that has him "concerned" is Los Alamos. He explained that many people that used to work for him are now in management positions at L.A. and that he is very familiar with the layout and protocalls there. He is worried about a fire getting to the dry storage barrells. They are stored in pits, but open to the sky. Should they burn and the radiation gets into the plume, the jet stream would carry it across the heartland...and middle-America is gonna be a very quiet neighborhood...for about 30 years.

Radioprotective diet

In 1945, at the time of the atomic bombing of Japan, Tatsuichiro Akizuki, M.D. was Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at St. Francis's Hospital in Nagasaki. Most patients in the hospital, located one mile from the center of the blast, survived the initial effects of the bomb, but soon after came down with symptoms of radiation sickness from the fallout that has been released.

Dr. Akizuki fed his staff and patients a strict diet of brown rice, miso and tamari soy soup, wakame, kombu and other seaweed, Hokkaido pumpkin, and sea salt and prohibited the consumption of sugar and sweets.

As a result, he saved everyone in his hospital, while many other survivors perished from radiation sickness.

makes you wonder

if this is the Nuclear issue that people
like ben fulford have been talking about..
many times we all think bombs...
what better way than just destroy something already
built and blame it on nature to get a similiar effect.

that's a little to "conspiracy" though... god I hope this
is not as bad as it could be..

Wow...

from the Alexander Higgins link...

"The reason there is a problem and why they aren’t telling the truth is because, while Fukishima is equivalent to about twenty Chernobyls, Ft. Calhoun is equivalent to about twenty Fukushimas.
Not because it has a lot of reactors – or even a very big one. But because it is holding an immense amount of nuclear fuel in its cooling pool.

This isn’t some elevated bathtub like the cooling pools at Fukushima. Oh, no. This cooling pool is forty feet UNDER GROUND AND forty feet ABOVE GROUND. It’s EIGHTY FEET DEEP IN TOTAL. If they can’t cool it, the corn belt is in trouble."

An eight-story building, half underground, containing nothing but spent fuel rods (overflowing into external casks since 2006). Supposedly 20 times as much as Fukushima...

alexanderhiggins just referred to this post.

"Found on The Daily Paul, this video was recorded from an ABC 8 news program which clearly states the nuclear power plant is under water and 10 mile evacuation has been ordered around the plant. It is discussed in detail in the video why the evacuation has been issued."

"The head of the NRC toured the Fort Calhoun Nuclear plant which is now underwater. A 10 mile evacuation around the plant has been ordered, but all references of the evacuation have been scrubbed from online news sites."

Shhh...

think happy thoughts... and pick up some bisphenol-a laced plastic stuff from Walmart and some Big Macs.

From bad to worse to .....?

It is what they do not tell us that I worry most about.

Any folks in/from this

Any folks in/from this general area? This story seems pretty important.

So there are THREE plants in the U.S. that are in danger, correct? Crazy.

yeah, I live about 25 miles

yeah, I live about 25 miles south of the plant in a small but very prosperous (sp?) town called Papillion. During the summer last year I actually lived with my Dad and his now ex-fiance in the town of Fort Calhoun about 3 miles from the plant.

Complete media blackout from both the national and local news sources so honestly I'm as clueless as everyone else, which is scary because they're going to wait unti the last minute possibe and be like "oh...yeah...btw...the plant is much worse now...you should probably leave...oh and uh...you might have been exposed to some higher than average levels of radiation. Have a nice life." Sigh

Two. nuke plants...

and the experimental reactors and waste storage at Los Alamos, AFAIK

It doesn't look good.

Hopefully..

most of the residents around the plant are cows. :p

Nope

Just Sheep....LOL

Haha...

Baaaa!

Beef cows or dairy cows?

Glowing hamburgers and milkshakes. Yum.
