3 Nuclear Power Plants threatened in U.S.

There are three different nuclear power plants threatened by natural causes this week. Two in Nebraska from flooding and one in New Mexico from wildfire.

The Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico will be closed for a second day today as a raging wildfire remains a threat, while floodwaters from the Missouri River are keeping two nuclear power plants under siege in Nebraska.

The authorities are adamant that all precautions have been taken and all three plants are expected to survive the flooding/wildfire and pose no immediate threat at this time.
