In the U.S., two submerged plant


Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant Building, storing spent fuel, flooded with water, reports

In the U.S. no-fly private aircraft near the nuclear power plant "Fort Calhoun", 20 miles north of Omaha, Nebraska. The flights are also prohibited and over NPP Braunville, on which stands a reactor — a copy fukusimskogo.

The reason — both plant heavily inundated by floods, and display the picture in the media can cause panic among the population.

Report that spent nuclear fuel at Fort Calhoun is June 7 The power goes out in a fire pump on the switchboard.

NRC inspectors found that the plant "Cooper" in Braunville can not be stopped manually in the event of an emergency — such as a fire. Appropriate mechanisms have failed. In particular, the hand-operated valve used for pressure relief in the coolant circuit, defective (simply rusted tight).

The dam holds back the water so far. Infiltrate evacuated. Reactor "Fort Calhoun" muted and even filled with purified water for cooling.

Another, larger nuclear power plants, with the most powerful reactor in Nebraska (800 MW) — Cooper (Cooper Nuclear Station) in Braunvile Nebraska, is downstream of the Missouri and also flooded. And the situation is a bit worse.
