The threat of a nuclear reactor meltdown in the United States is a real possibility and might be much closer on the horizon then you may think.
Currently a Nebraska nuclear reactor is battling extreme flood waters due to the every increasing strange weather patterns that have hit the U.S. and other parts of the globe.
The following is an excerpt from ProPublicia showing just how quick a situation can arise;
A fire in an electrical switch room on Tuesday briefly knocked out cooling for a pool holding spent nuclear fuel at the Fort Calhoun nuclear plant outside Omaha, Neb., plant officials said.
The safety of deep pools used to store used radioactive fuel at nuclear plants has been an issue since the accident at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant in March. If the cooling water a pool is lost, the used nuclear fuel could catch fire and release radiation.
The article states that what caused the fire in the control room is unknown at this time.
One must wonder what would happen to the citizens of the US if a meltdown took place and how the problem would be handled by the powers that be.
Would the government cover-up the dangers and keep the information suppressed as many stand-by waiting for their leaders and media to tell them what to do?
