The chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is expected Monday to visit a Nebraska power plant surrounded by Missouri River floodwater.
The Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station, about 20 miles north of Omaha, Nebraska, is one of two in the state that has been getting increased attention from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission amid historic flooding along the Missouri River.
The Fort Calhoun plant, which has been shut down since April for refueling, has as much as two feet of water in places. The plant's parking lot is among the areas flooded, requiring plant workers to navigate a catwalk to reach the plant.
NRC Chairman Gregory Jaczko is scheduled to visit the Fort Calhoun plant on Monday morning.FULL STORY
