US Atomic Plants ‘Dodging Radioactive Bullets’ as Floodwaters Submerge Midwest

With heavy rainfall inundating the US Midwest, nuclear power plants risk being flooded. However, the plants continue to operate at full power, resulting in the potential for “unnecessary, extremely high risk” accidents, according to Kevin Kamps, the Radioactive Waste Watchdog at the organization Beyond Nuclear.

"In Nebraska alone, you've got the Offutt Air Force Base, which is the home of the [US] Strategic Command, which controls the nuclear arsenal of the US, and it's largely flooded," Kamps told Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear hosts Brian Becker and Nicole Roussell.

But apparently anything that was done was insufficient.
