U.S. nuclear plant declares “alert”: NRC

NEW YORK – Exelon Corp declared an “alert” at its New Jersey Oyster Creek nuclear power plant due to a record storm surge, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission said on Monday, warning that a further rise in water levels could force operators to use emergency water supplies from a fire hose to cool spent uranium fuel rods.

The alert — the second lowest of four NRC action levels — came after water levels at the plant rose by more than 6.5 feet (2 metres), potentially affecting the pumps that circulate water through the plant, an NRC spokesman said.

Those pumps are not essential since the plant is shut for planned refuelling at the moment. However a further rise to 7 feet could submerge the service water pump motor that is used to cool the water in the spent fuel pool.

Woman arrested for speaking too long at city council meeting

A 60-year-old woman was arrested after exceeding her allotted three minutes of speaking time at a California city council meeting.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that Karen Wright’s arrested was caught on video, when she was handcuffed by police and cited for disrupting a public meeting during a Riverside City Council meeting.

“Can you see my wrists? You’re pulling and jerking on my wrists!” Wright says in the video, while police forcibly handcuff her while she is on her knees. “I cannot get up without putting my hands down!”

Riverside Mayor Ron Loveridge and other council members denied ordering the arrest, which occurred when Wright was addressing a local sludge-hauling contract. When her time expired, one of the two attending police officers began to escort Wright away, who then resisted and shouted to the council, “I would like you to quit the harassment with the police.”
