Vogtle Nuke Plant Outside Augusta, GA has Sudden Shut Down – “for re-fueling”

18 09 2018

See Region 2, half way down this page – “output: 0”


News story –

Scheduled refueling activities underway at Plant Vogtle Unit 1

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.Sept. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Plant operators safely removed Unit 1 of the Alvin W. Vogtle Electric Generating Plant offline Sunday, Sept. 16, at 5 a.m. ET for the scheduled fall 2018 refueling outage. The severe weather resulting from Hurricane Florence had no impact on the scheduled refueling outage activities.

It would have been nice if the NRC page had this. They have no news releases featuring “Vogtle” since August.

Let’s see how many nuke plants in the path of hurricane Florence affected area get a re-fueling shutdown this week….


On or before September 30, the two minority owners of Plant Vogtle Units 3&4, Oglethorpe Power Corporation (OPC) and Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG), will decide if they want to assume their portion of the recently announced $2.3 Billion cost overrun and continue participating in the project plagued by multiple delays and cost overruns that have increased rates, impaired balance sheets, and strained borrowing capacities. They will decide if they want to ante-up and bet the house on flawless going-forward project execution at Vogtle.


“Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia (MEAG), a co-owner of the South Georgia nuclear plant, sits on one side of the dispute while the Jacksonville Electric Authority (JEA) is on the other. MEAG in its federal lawsuit filed Tuesday claims JEA, the Florida-based company, is trying to renege on a 2008 agreement to purchase power from the Georgia-based operator.”



Was Wilmington, NC hit with a rain deluge and not a hurricane?

18 09 2018

We ask how much wind did North Carolina get along the coast?
Did they even get hurricane force anything?

They certainly got a deluge but a hurricane wind would tear leaves off trees and tip over cars.
We weren’t going to blog this idea (that tv lied about the hurricane status) but were struck by some information in this video, “WTH IS Going On In SC & NC?
She talks about the ban on drones and the we began to look at roof damage.
Let’s look at Wilmington after the storm/hurricane and St. Maarten after a hurricane.


Not only are the roofs all intact in the Wilmington flyover footage, all of the air-co vents etc. are intact. And all around in the trees and yards and parking lots there is no roof-blown-off debris. No zinc, lumber scraps, tarpaper strips etc. at all.
Unlike St. Maarten aftermath. In a hurricane the blown off bits of roof are a major cause of death.
That’s why you are told to stay indoors.

And lets see how these parked boats came through the storm in Wilmington vs boats in St. Maarten –

Notice the trees are not missing leaves.
1 min mark – moored boats are all intact, not shoved up ontop of each other or sunken!

Another reason Judge Brett Kavanaugh pick for Supreme Court is bad – he helped cover up Vince Foster murder

Justice Integrity Project –

Did Trump High Court Pick Whitewash 1993 White House Death?

” . . . In expanding the probe to other matters, Starr and his associate counsel, Kavanaugh, in 1997 affirmed a U.S. Park Service Police report asserting that Foster, shown right, had fatally shot himself in Fort Marcy Park, located near the Potomac River that divides Virginia from the District of Columbia. . . “

Brunswick Nuke Plant: STATE OF EMERGENCY

Zero Hedge – “Inaccessible” North Carolina Nuclear Plant Declares “Unusual Event” During Storm-Driven “Hot Shutdown”

Duke Energy’s Brunswick nuclear plant, about 30 miles south of Wilmington, has declared a state of emergency as the 1,200-acre complex remains cut off by flood waters and and is inaccessible to outside personnel.

Tracking Hurricane Florence – What to do if a dirty-bomb aka Nuke Plant explodes near you

17 09 2018

Helpful advice from the NRC

If one explodes near you, take the following steps:

  • Move at least several blocks from the explosion and get indoors. This will reduce exposure to any airborne radioactive dust.
  • Check local radio or television stations for advisories from emergency response and health authorities.
    Remove your clothes and place them in a sealed plastic bag. Your contaminated clothing can be tested for radiation contamination.
  • Take a shower to wash off dust and dirt. This will reduce total radiation exposure, if the explosive device contained radioactive material.
  • If radioactive material was released, local news broadcasts will advise you where to report for radiation monitoring and tests to determine whether you were exposed and what steps to take to protect your health.

On #2 – all day long on 9-11 emergency response and health authorities gave no alerts of instructions. The Emergency Alert System was silent and the EPA allowed firemen and volunteers to inhale deadly toxic air at the rescue scene in NYC which quickly killed more firemen than the ones who died that day.

On #3 they leave out the part nuke scientists get for lab accidents – in taking that shower be sure to wash open eyes and inside the mouth and do not use soap. Use water. Get in the as shower fast as possible. Clothing is toxic waste – handle it with tongs.

Better shower info  from WikiHow – How to Respond to a Radiation Threat

  • Avoid taking off any clothes over your head. If you have no choice, then hold your mouth shut and do not breathe so that you don’t inhale dust from your clothes. If you have to cut them, do so for the sake of your health. And any wounds or cuts on your body should be covered before removing clothes, to prevent the potential for dust to enter them.

ABC News – Radiation Exposure: 5 Things You Need To Know – video

” During a radiation emergency, such as fears of a nuclear plant explosion, you may be advised to create a “shelter in place.” This means you should stay inside your home or office, or perhaps another confined area indoors. To keep your shelter in place effective, you should: close and lock all doors and windows; turn off fans, air conditioners, or any units that bring in air from outside; move to an inner room or basement; keep your radio tuned to the emergency response network or local news to find out what else you need to do.”

The NRC doesn’t give info on it’s blog anymore and doesn’t feel compelled to give out any plant specific info on the many nuke plants affected by Hurricane Florence flooding across many states.

On Sept. 15th they say they only shut down Brunswick NPP and Global Nuclear Fuels plant. No updates since then. We are sure no of the aging nuke plants in the hurricane path have cracks in the containment building concrete like that collapsed bridge in Genoa had.


Sept. 13 – Fox News – Hurricane Florence’s potentially catastrophic path includes ‘at-risk’ nuclear power plants

“Two at-risk nuclear power plants – one with the same design as the Fukushima plant – are in the center of Hurricane Florence’s path of destruction when it makes landfall later this week…”
… “It’s predicted to directly pass over the Brunswick Nuclear Plant – about 30 miles south of Wilmington – as well as the Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant in New Hill, a town farther inland.”

“SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A federal agency Wednesday proposed a $145,000 fine for safety violations at Plant Vogtle, saying employees failed to perform “vital” checks of equipment and conditions at the nuclear plant in eastern Georgia.”

5 Million TONS of coal ash is stored upriver from Brunswick nuke plant

17 09 2018

Duke energy has a map of all their coal ash landfills. Hurricane Florence is still dumping rain on North Carolina.

Brunswick NPP is located near the coast near Wilmington, NC – you can check the river levels around the Cape Fear River here: https://water.weather.gov/ahps/region.php?state=nc

Duke has a lot of coal ash stored at their energy plant site near Lake Sutton, above Wilmington.

Coal Ash sites:

These are all from Duke Energy. There could be other ones in NC and SC etc.

The emergency flood plans for the coal ash sites are considering dam failure scenario not hurricane or deluge. Coal ash storage data and reports page from Duke Energy.

Catherine Austin-Fitts says robots to take over all US jobs soon – funded by workers, not by 1%

She says the whole reason for hastily written laws, not by popular demand, for alternative sex options (besides M/F) on birth certificates is to assign personhood to robots in the future, affording them benefits that used to go to human workers. The laws are already introduced in some states and 1%ers at fancy think tanks are going full steam ahead with the plan. 

Washington birth certificates could list sex as M, F or X

This scheme ties into what happened to the missing 21 trillion dollars the pentagon “lost”. It is funding  robot take-over of the American workplace with AI help.
