Alert...Nuclear Meltdown in Nebraska?
Airspace Over Flooded Nebraska Nuclear Power Plant Still Closed
On June 6th, the Federal Administration Aviation (FAA) issued a directive banning aircraft from entering the airspace within a two-mile radius of the plant.
“No pilots may operate an aircraft in the areas covered by this NOTAM,” referring to the “notice to airmen,” effective immediately.
The plant is reportedly at a stage 4 level of emergency, though the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD), which owns and operates the plant, denies this.
“This terminology is not accurate, and is not how emergencies at nuclear power plants are classified,” the OPPD says on a website created to counter rumors about the security of the Fort Calhoun plant.
