I'm not worried about how close I am, I just found this very interesting and thought some of you freepers might like to know as well!

Some of these plants I've never heard of!

I don't know but my wife lives near a source of natural gas.

20 miles from Millstone. As mentioned in an thread from earlier this week, I haven’t even thought of it until I saw the post.

The reason that you have never heard of them is because they have operated safely for decades.

This one is the close to Detroit (and the second closest to me)

Fermi 2
Plant Operator: DTE Energy
Oldest reactor on site: 25 years old
Same containment system as the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan

I guess it sucks to be Detroit ... but then that goes without saying every day.

Like I said, I’m not worried at all. I have visited two of them with my kids!

And lol at the steveo that says:

“I don’t know but my wife lives near a source of natural gas.”

I’ve got scripting blocked so the page doesn’t work. When I looked to see what I could unblock, I noticed that they’re trying to run scripting from about 15 different sites. I temporarily enabled CNN.COM but it needs one of the other 14. Too much for my internet comfort.

I am in between two - Oak Ridge TN is 17 miles and Sequoyah is 36 miles as the crow flies.

Then again we also have the facility that is decommissioning old nuke bombs about 45 miles from me.

Oh well.
