A local nuclear power plant faces a possible shutdown after officials and activists have expressed fear over the facility’s operations.
“The Japanese planned for an earthquake that was the biggest for 1,000 years. Well they got one. They got one that was 1,100 years,” said Marilyn Ele of the Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition.
Using the Japan nuclear crisis as a worst case scenario, the Westchester Board of Legislators was set to meet to explore the disaster preparedness plan at the Indian Point Nuclear power plant.
