|I have never been opposed to the use of nuclear power. It seems to be one of the safest, most efficient and cheapest forms of energy generation in the US.
While the part of the country that I live in only gets minor earthquakes, this year we got massive and prolonged flooding. It seemed to me that this could be a problem for the reactors. I kept searching for any news of any problems, but never found any. The area around Three Mile Island sustained record breaking flooding as did the areas around some of the plants in New Jersey and New England.
I swear that I have read articles in the past about the dangers that flooding presents to the reactors. Am I wrong about this? On a clear day, I can see the towers for the Limerick plant from the hill outside. They are about 8 to10 miles from here and the waters from that area run through the creek just below this house.
