At 3:09 am this morning, Tuesday September 27, the Palisades Nuclear plant near South Haven Michigan began releasing radioactive steam into the air. I guess I won’t breath today.

Entergy’s Palisades nuclear plant near South Haven is venting radioactive steam into the environment as part of an unplanned shutdown triggered by an electrical accident. This shutdown, which began Sunday evening, came just five days after the plant restarted from a shutdown that was caused by a leak in the plant’s cooling system.

I had CNN on for a while this morning and didn’t hear a peep about it, but I only had it on for about an hour so they may very well have mentioned it.
