28 nuclear reactors in the United States could suddenly fail due to earthquakes… most are located along the East Coast

The Fukushima disaster that occurred six years ago last month continues to plague Japan and the rest of the world to this day. Heavily damaged by a massive tsunami caused by an equally destructive earthquake, radioactive problems persist without any relief in sight.

In fact, as noted by Fukushima Watch, the world’s worst nuclear disaster since the 1986 Chernobyl plant meltdown in Ukraine could get even worse if the plant’s fuel rod storage pool collapses:

…[A] former nuclear engineer, Arnie Gundersen, believes the worst is yet to come, as workers at the plant get closer to the reactors.

“As they get in [the containment vessel at Fukushima Daiichi Unit 2], they’re finding that combination of hot steam – these are not just radioactive chemicals, but it’s a toxic mix of chemicals that are going to react with the steel,” he said in an interview with the BBC. “So there’s rust and hunks of nuclear fuel lying around, and steam, and it’s raining all the time because of the condensation.

“I think it’s about as close to hell as I could imagine,” he added, noting that the contamination will continue for thousands of years.

Could something like that happen in the United States? Could a massive earthquake severely damage domestic nuclear plants? That depends on who you ask.

A new interactive chart created by the Union of Concerned Scientists, which is really a database of U.S. nuclear reactors and safety issues associated with them, shows a higher-than-average concentration of nuclear plants along the nation’s East Coast that are at risk of being damaged or destroyed by an earthquake.

    They should ALL be dismantled and outlawed !!! Use coal solar wind and hydro electric, etc.
