A concerning situation near Omaha, Neb. took a new twist early Sunday when a temporary levee protecting the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station failed, forcing the facility to turn briefly to emergency generated power.
At this moment, 19 miles north of Omaha in the small town of Blair, Neb., a barrier of Aqua Dams separates the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Station from the Missouri River’s flood waters. Another 100 miles downstream on the Nebraska side of the river but past the Iowa-Missouri line, more than 5,000 tons of sand was brought in to help protect the Cooper Nuclear Station from rising waters.
