Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie nuclear power plants lie in the projected path of 185mph Irma

Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie nuclear power plants lie in the projected path of 185mph Irma --Officials confident that reactors at two nuclear plants in Florida will stand firm as the deadly hurricane heads for landfall | 07 Sept 2017 | Nuclear power bosses are ready to shut down the reactors of two plants which lie in the path of Hurricane Irma. Florida Power & Light's Turkey Point and St. Lucie plants...are under threat. Spokesman Peter Robbins said: 'Based on the current track, we would expect severe weather in Florida starting Saturday, meaning we would potentially shut down before that point.' It can take more than 24 hours to shut down a reactor, so the decision will have to be made well in advance. When nuclear reactors get shut down they have to be cooled. If they are not, as in the case of the Fukushima disaster in 2011 when a tsunami disabled emergency generators, there can be nuclear meltdowns, hydrogen-air explosions and the release of radioactive material.
