Idiots at DHS and FEMA think power loss / destruction at nuke plants in the event of a big New Madrid Fault earthquake is no problem!

New Madrid

Item from The Louisiana Sinkhole Bugle Strange Sounds: Is Big New Madrid Quake Around the Corner??
We got the New Madrid Fault area earthquake planning documents from the Central United States Earthquake Consortium in Memphis, Tenn..

white_blackYEL_RADThey did studies on the effects to infrastructure in case of a big quake. They looked at the power grid and pipelines but don’t seem to be aware there are ANY nuke plants or research reactors in the Midwest or Southeast!

The DoE (“nukes-R-us“) study, “DOE New Madrid Seismic Zone Electric Utility Summary” forgets to mention what happens when a nuke plant cannot get back up power or what happens to a research reactor either. They did modeling of a simultaneous double whammy – New Madrid and Wabash earthquakes with magnitudes of 7.7 and 6.8.

This study also forgets about nukes –
New Madrid Seismic Zone and Wabash Valley Seismic Zone: Assessing Impacts on Natural Gas Transmission
Natural gas must have nothing to do with the power supply to the nuke plants. Because just an hour of no back-up power after a quake will start the big meltdowns.

The NEI left most of the nuke plants off their fancy map

The Union of Concerned Scientists have a better map

But we wonder where the map is that shows the weapons labs, the dump sites, the research reactors, the factories that use nuke waste to make things… where all those are.
We found this –
Map of U.S. Research Nuclear Reactors

But it doesn’t show all the shut down nuke reactors with fuel stocks sitting around campuses all over.
The World Nuclear Association says there are 245 research reactors total

– so most of them must be in the USA. We bet they are lying too since we know MOX fuel that blew up at Fukushima on 3-11 was from an illegal weapons lab.

This list of nuke research reactors shows 2 in Missouri

Mother Jones magazine has a map showing the nuke weapons sites in the USA –

Most know about Oak Ridge in Tenn. but Kansas City has a big nuke weapons plant too.
Kansas City Plant, Bannister – they make nuke bombs and missiles and mini-nukes and every other damned thing there.  How would they do if a quake broke the energy grid and they had a sustained blackout? They are 12 miles from downtown. Over 475,000 people there.

And we know the big Manhattan Project dump site burning underground near St. Louis must have similar places dotted all around the New Madrid Fault Zone. They did underground nuke blasts in Mississippi. And all over the place undocumented, forgotten nuke waste is tossed down abandoned wells and pits.

This EIA page rates Illinois as #1 in Nuclear & Uranium. Illinois is at the north part of the New Madrid Fault. They have 11 reactors at 6 locations. The U of I closed their mini-nuke-reactor on campus but it may have a lot of rad material hanging around as they still do lots of (military) “research” on the Engineering campus.

Did they look at this Virginia Tech study, New Madrid Seismic Zone Catastrophic Earthquake Response Planning Project (Vol.1)?

Amazingly, DHS predicts no nuke meltdowns in case of a big quake!

Notice all these disaster planners are the big proponents of the nuke industry like the DoE.

Great work! Great find! Also, they are depending on emergency backup using FEDEX in Memphis. Memphis is the center of the New Madrid.

I’ll add that one to the bottom.

Note: my computer is getting hammered here. Unusable many days this week so I am trying to fix it.
If something big happens and I don’t get it on the blog it’s because of tech issues here.

I’m sorry about the computer, but you are doing great! There are too many big things happening to keep up with or without tech issues.

and – BONUS – the last art graphic has a lot of their double-speak lingo for how to look up what the plan is for blacked out nukes.
I got all this because of Dublinsmick’s item mentioning that earthquake consortium I never heard of.

What does the India missile control group mean? They sell or buy missiles? Or both? Geopolitically I guess it means that there is an attempt to leverage India’s overpopulation against China’s overpopulation.

I think US want to control the South China Sea lanes and will loose in a war with China or run up to one.
The pentagon thinks China and Russia have stood still for 50 years. They just got the US Navy chased out of the Baltic sea so they’d better watch out!

I get that they are trying kiss up to India in order to use India’s weight against China. But, who is selling missiles to whom? The west to India or India to the west?

27 06 2016
flyingcuttlefish

I think the west to India and maybe India to everyone out the back door. But who knows?

They write it so that no one can figure out, I guess. Same for the massive printing of money for Brexit. Someone spilled the beans in a comment that they were printing 15,000 BPS per inhabitant, which works out to 900 billion (Someone did the math for me so I can’t guarantee), over 1 trillion USD, and only then can anyone start to see what Bank of England Carney is really saying. The term is quantitative easing (QE).

I heard too the US bail out (TARP) was enough money to pay all American’s debt, mortgages, student loans, cc bills plus some.

Fitzpatrick NPP in upper NY has an oil leak …

….. there must be no onw working there to not notice that oil gushing all over the roof!

Got report of 0.30 microsievert/hr in the middle of Europe but it dropped before the person could get a pic of the Geiger. Normal there is around 0.15 microsievert. Appears no solar flare today. Could have been Geiger bleep for it dropped on down. The person remains vigilant and will monitor and check wind direction.

For a birds eye view on what happened the last time the Madrid went off I always try and get people to read this one. There are some interesting sidelights here as Tecumseh predicted it beforehand.

On eurorads too much to consider. gamma could be strong sun at n. latitudes. then many reactors go offline in europe in summer due to no ac and vacations. when they go offline there is a peak. all would have to be evaluated on a case by case basis and see what is left over. also high altitude gets more gamma and mts more fallout on one side. beta is specific for manmade rad.

I sent it to you since I cannot read those graphs …
file it away…
