After watching the terrible series of cascading disasters on the Texas Coast after Hurricane Harvey, we know for a fact that the aftermath of a catastrophe can be just as bad (and sometimes worse) than the initial event. There’s a terrifying potential threat in Florida in the form of 3 nuclear plants, two of which are directly in the projected path of Hurricane Irma. Could Florida’s nuclear plants turn Hurricane Irma into the American version of Fukushima?

To be fully prepared for the possibility, people should be ready for the potential of a simultaneous hurricane and nuclear disaster.

Where are the nuclear plants?

Florida boasts of these nuclear facilities:

Turkey Point Nuclear Generating Station
St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant
The Crystal River Coal and Nuclear Power Plant on the map has now been decommissioned and is said to pose no threat.

The first two plants on the list are right in the projected path of the eye of Hurricane Irma. See the map below.
