Thanks Susie, Yes now I remember reading that there would have to be cracks in the reactors for it to become a problem. We had huge cracks and breaks in highways and actually had big concrete walls collapse in the flooding of both buildings and bridges. I don't know if Reactors are built more strongly than other buildings and bridge supports and road overpasses.

Now I do remember reading that the scenario would have to be a power failure that shut down the reactor coupled with a crack. I think that it was one of the New Jersey papers writing about the flooding in Salem County. That county in South Jersey was the first one to flood above the Delmarva peninsula and it houses 2 nuclear power plants.
