Think it couldn’t’ happen here?

It’s been two years today since the disaster at Fukushima. Guess again…NRC commissioners told a Senate committee in a 2012 hearing that a Fukushima-like disaster could not happen in the U.S. In fact, two years earlier the NRC had notified the owner of the Oconee (in South Carolina) reactors, located downstream from the Jocassee dam, that they needed to implement measures to guard against what risk analysts considered a near certainty of flood damage in the event of dam failure. Not only did the commissioners mislead the Senate, the information was withheld from the public for two years.
