A look at the Limerick nuclear plant one year after Fukushima-Daiichi disaster

    It’s been one year since the earthquake/tsunami-induced nuclear disaster at the Fukushima-Daiichi reactors in Japan.

    Since then, Exelon has made an effort to tell people its U.S. reactors don’t face the same threat. A weekend report from the Pottstown Mercury gives a rundown of what measures Exelon has taken at the Limerick nuclear plant in our area.
    There’ve been countless inspections and training, equipment has been reviewed and flood barriers have been sealed.

    Knowing the details of the review, does it make you feel safer in case of an emergency, or do you think nuclear reactors always pose a threat?
