I had previously reported that the Nine Mile Point nuclear power plant in New York lost offsite power to one of its reactors during Hurricane Sandy. This morning’s Nuclear Regulatory Commission Event Reports indicate that the same thing happened to the Unit 1 reactor at Oyster Creek in New Jersey: “The site also experienced a loss of offsite power event concurrent with the additional water level increase. Both emergency diesel generators started and are supplying power to the emergency electrical busses.”
Another update indicates that the water level at Oyster Creek has fallen and that the Unusual Event has been terminated.
As always, you can access NRC Event Reports at www.nrc.gov.
