It appears that articles outlining information on the Ft. Calhoun nuclear plant has aroused the rumor mongers in Russia. Although it is more than curious that few news outlets are covering this story, the following report is a reach even for Russian propaganda.
There is a no fly zone surrounding this plant still in effect, but no reports of radioactivity or cesium have been reported.
A shocking report prepared by Russia’s Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAAE) on information provided to them by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) states that the Obama regime has ordered a “total and complete” news blackout relating to any information regarding the near catastrophic meltdown of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant located in Nebraska.
According to this report, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant suffered a “catastrophic loss of cooling” to one of its idle spent fuel rod pools on 7 June after this plant was deluged with water caused by the historic flooding of the Missouri River which resulted in a fire causing the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to issue a “no-fly ban” over the area.
Whatever the current condition of this facility, here are the facts:
- a rising Missouri River
- a nuclear power plant surrounded by sandbags
- a report from the NRC stating the plants piping penetrations are not waterproof
- a no fly zone surrounding the plant
- a documented fire which temporarily stopped coolant from reaching the spent fuel rods
These facts coupled with what does appear to be a news blackout in the United States are the reasons why we must continue to be vigilant and trust in ourselves to make informed decisions. The flooding of the Missouri River, the Ft. Peck Dam and the Ft. Calhoun Nuclear plant need to be monitored closely.
