Reactor Coolant Leak at Nuke Plant in Michigan

While not submarine related, this is a nuclear power related story, so I'll blog it (my main expertise on submarines was the nuclear-power part.) Via Drudge Report, we find this article from WXYZ in Detroit, about a reactor coolant leak at the Fermi II plant. (Here's another report from the Detroit Free Press.) The Drudge Report "flash" header says the leak is about 75 gallons per minute of primary coolant, which is a very big leak, if true.

Staying at PD...

Update 2304 24 Jan: Secure from drill; this update from the Detroit Free Press indicates that the leak was from a non-radioactive section of piping -- therefore, not a primary coolant leak as initially reported.

Going deep...
