Hi Stormy,
Thanks for posting this point. I haven't looked at this issue in depth yet but did find these two reports on one flooding incident. I'm certain there is available data even at DOE on hazards of flooding and events of contamination due to flooding. I'm thinking that, as is pointed out in these reports, if the reactor is shut down the water on site will not be circulating through it to cool... so if flooding were to occur it wouldn't be exposed to radiation. If the reactor is running and flooding occurs flooding waters MAY mingle with reactor cooling waters. Also, and I have to look into this, seems there'd have to be a leak to contaminate. Flooding would have to CAUSE (crack) a leak (as the earthquake in Sendai Japan caused the leak at Fukushima did). The flooding from the tsunami carried the reactor's contaminate cooling waters throughout the lands and ocean. Just a logical guess on my part. Have to look into this more.
