    Impressive, but then you realize the lens exaggerates the curvature of the earth.

    Doubt a hurricane alone is enough to cause a breakdown at an NPP, remember that Fuku was hit by an earthquake first.

    If it gets flooded it probably gonna lose power, no power = no cooling. i guess we see if the Americans build better then the Japanese/Russians. I mean its certainly build to withstand a hurricane, question is how large did they plan for, katrina was only CAT 3 when it hit and im assuming this will be CAT 4 or worse when it hits?

    From some quick googling...

    Brunswick nuclear plant is a mile and a bit of swamp from the coast, and the coast is semi-protected by a line of barrier islands/glorified sand dunes. The plant is only 20 feet above sea level and supposedly built to withstand a storm surge of 22 feet. Brunswick has two boiling water reactors.

    CNN is quoting a possible storm surge of 13 feet on top of a seven foot high tide.

    Shearon Harris reactor is around a hundred miles from shore and roughly 220 feet above sea level. It relies on Harris Lake, a reservoir, for cooling. I've seen estimates of three feet of rain but I have no clue what the drainage of the area is like. Shearon has one pressurized water ractor.

    IIRC the earthquake didn't actually cause any damage (aside from trip the reactors). The tsunami that washed away the backup diesel generators providing power to the cooling loops was what did it.

    I'd be more concerned for the Savannah River site. A lot of aging nuclear facilities and waste stored there.

    They've been shutting the reactors down over the last few days. Response time makes a huge difference compared to Fukushima. A shut-down reactor doesn't need active cooling, so even if the pumps get destroyed/flooded out it won't cause a meltdown. Physical damage could, but Florence's winds are weaker (Cat 2 at the time of this post) and so the primary danger is flooding from storm surge and rainfall. Shutting down the reactors should take care of that particular worry.

    Of course restarting them will require repairs/replacement for flooded equipment & the power grid, so that could take some time. But a meltdown is unlikely.

    Has shit hit the fan yet? Prognosis better or worse than first thought?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    "it's all going to be fine" forecasts don't drive views m8

    over here we have the added bonus of the Storm of 1987 meaning that forecasters will always add a few notches to any storm forecast to avoid a repeat of the "no hurricane coming" whoopsie

    Some towns under 10 feet of water, but at least most people evacuated.

    So, yeah, fine is relative.
