"Fukushima" Emergency at Fort Calhoun's Nuclear Power Plant in Nebraska.

“It can’t get much worse then this or else its going to breach the walls. What if the damn breaks? That would be the equivalent of the Fukushima tsunami.” -- Arnie Gunderson, former nuclear plant operator and Chief Engineer at Fairewinds Assoc.
According to someone I know, who lives in the area - and who has worked at the Fort Calhoun plant for years - one of the walls,(correction: the wall that collapsed is south of the plant), has been breached. He said there were/are many serious issues at the plant that has been kept from the public.



On June 6, 2011, the Fort Calhoun pressurized water nuclear reactor, twenty miles north of Omaha, Nebraska entered emergency status due to encroaching water from the Missouri River. The Army Corp of Engineers advised that the height of the rising waters would soon exceed 1004 feet above median sea level. One day later, an electrical fire in the basement of the nuclear power plant required plant evacuation.

On June 8th, it was confirmed that the fire incapacitated parts of the cooling system, which resulted in the loss of cooling for the reactor’s spent fuel pool.

 Omaha Public Power District did not want KETV reporting on this event,  but because the Missouri River is a public waterway, they felt it is their job and thier right to show the public what's happening at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power station.
