    He's just putting the lie to all of that stuff about Bush being the cause of everything in the Universe.

    If he takes a break the country doesn't fall apart.

    Course when Bush was President the media gave everyone that impression.

    well, if it hits Kalifornia, it will hopefully cleave away San fran and Berkeley and send them both into the pacific.

    If I am at work, oh well, I'll take one for mankind and go down with moonbats....light a candle for me.

    The first link has video of the situation and the water high and due to rise another 5'. I'm just surprised I haven't heard about this earlier.

    Electrical Fire Knocks Out Spent Fuel Cooling at Nebraska Nuclear Plant


    Wednesday 15 June 2011


    A fire in an electrical switch room on Tuesday briefly knocked out cooling for a pool holding spent nuclear fuel at the Fort Calhoun nuclear plant outside Omaha, Neb., plant officials said.

    The safety of deep pools used to store used radioactive fuel at nuclear plants has been an issue since the accident at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant in March. If the cooling water in a pool is lost, the used nuclear fuel could catch fire and release radiation.

    This could be potentially disastrous let's hope it's not. It was flash flooding that cause the problem at the nuclear plant(s)

    "Flooding remains a concern all along the river because of the massive amounts of water released by the Army Corps of Engineers. The river is expected to rise as much as 5 to 7 feet above flood stage in much of Nebraska and Iowa and as much as 10 feet over flood stage in parts of Missouri."
