“Your uncalled-for snotty answer to a legitimate question says volumes about your character - or lack thereof.”
As the evidence in your own information showed, there were no safety concerns AT the Indian Point Plant and any cause for shutting any of it’s system was related to external conditions and for reasons needed by those conditions, not intrinsicly for safety concerns about the plant.
As to any other nuclear plants that were reported about, I expect any reasons they might have been shut down were for similar external reasons as I have seen nor heard any reports of any safety issues AT THE PLANTS anywhere here on the east coast.
Had the question been simply about “power plants” it might not have been silly. but the unfounded idea that just because a power plant is a nuclear power plant it is inherently unsafe or unstable is unfounded and silly.
The one power plant that I head had some internal explosion last night was a conventional power plant in lower Manhattan on the East River; and having lived for about 12 years in Manhattan and lived near Manhattan for another 30 I can report that that power plant has had multiple tragedies (once causing the neighborhood around it be evacuated due to taxic fumes from a fire there.
So yes, particular attention to Indian Point is silly.

I asked about Indian Point because I have a special interest in THAT facility and not others in the area. So, paying “...particular attention to Indian Point is silly.”, is not.
If I had only known ahead of time that the unscheduled shutdown at Indian Point (not an insignificant event, by the way) would be caused by “external conditions” not associated with the storm (snort) I probably wouldn’t have asked the question to begin with.
Just beacuse someone uses the word “nuclear” in a sentence does not automatically make them an environmental wacko deserving derision and ridicule. I lived on a nuc sub for 3 years. I’m very familiar with the inherently safe nature of nuclear power plants. However, because of the flooding issues at Fukimashim and the Cooper Nuclear Station in Nebraska, I thought I’d ask the question.
Your critique of my question was uncalled-for, unwarranted, unnecessary and snarky.
