“If it’s not outright sabotage going on in Nebraska, USA, it might as well be. The news blackout and no-fly zone and usual downplaying assurances tell you all you need to know anyway,” stated Zen Gardner in an article in the Before It Is News webpage.
“A state of emergency was declared for two counties where two nuclear plants are located – one at the Fort Calhoun nuclear facility and one at the Cooper Nuclear Station near Brownsville. Due to flooding from the Missouri River, some kind of emergency event is happening or about to happen there. The government is telling us not to worry, that there are just some precautionary measures going on to prevent a disaster from happening because of the flooding”.

“Just like in Japan, the government is telling us not to panic, all is under control.”
“But here are a few troubling inconsistencies.”
“Then there is the disturbing news that the spent fuel rod pool was so full that they store the surplus fuel rods in a dry storage area outside the safety of the pool. How long will that area stay dry and what happens if it gets wet?”
“One reporter claims the dry storage bunker is now half-submerged. One of the intake structures is prone to flooding that could affect the water pumps. Non-functional water pumps? Does that sound familiar?” (source: http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=29060
The following commentary is from the Before It Is News webpage.
If Calhoun melts down the contamination will be catastrophic, estimated by some to potentially be as much as 20 Fukushimas due to all the fuel rods being stored there. Smart.
But this time there’s no ocean to cross. And Who’s Downwind?
According to today’s jet stream report, Kansas, Iowa, MIssouri, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania and right on through the New York megalopolis and all of New England…with the gulf stream drawing it down the eastern seaboard all the way through Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. That will include direct hits on the heavily populated metro areas of St. Louis, Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, Philladelphia, New York and DC.
The contaminated flood waters would devastate everything in its path, including all the states, fisheries and farmland along the Missouri and Mississippi rivers and on into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Perfect Storm
And this didn’t cross 5000 miles of open ocean first. This would be a direct hit. One can’t begin to estimate the amount of life of all forms that would be contaminated if such a disaster were to occur.
On top of this, this is America’s breadbasket getting flooded, tornadoed and nuked. The repercussions or inestimable. All we need now is for the New Madrid Fault to go.
It’s almost beyond belief.
And unfortunately this where most people are going to file all this…beyond belief, much like the Gulf disaster, the major earthquakes and tsunamis, and Fukushima.
As long as the media don’t let their guard down and react with genuine concern or outrage, most of the populace will opt to think everything’s OK.
Alarmist? You bet. Someone better sound the alarm…the powers that be sure won’t.
