Update: 1:59 PM (EDT/EST) 9-12-18; At this time I have reason to believe that my state WILL experience statewide power outages. I’m not a meteorologist but I’ve studied weather and the military’s weather control program. At this time, this particular hurricane is set to attack the Brunswick Nuclear power plant, one power plant in the state of South Carolina, and even yet one power plant in Georgia. That’s ironic. I do not believe in coincidences. If I’m wrong, then I claim “insanity” as a defense…LOL hahaha! But seriously, even the Weather Channel and FEMA are saying that this will be the storm of a lifetime, and WILL be life changing…so, are they exaggerating too?? Anyway, this post may be my last post for some time and will return when I am able. God bless you and yours, keep North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia in your prayers. Loss of property and life is affirmative…I guess no one could imagine a statewide power outage, but never say never. Take care and help your neighbors!!! – Moraldiplomat

Will Duke Energy’s Brunswick nuclear plant’s flood barriers stop Hurricane Florence?
Could it happen? Sure! will it happen? Time tells it all. Never happen in America? They thought the same in Japan. Just making you aware. Many people across the social media outlets are aware of this scenario. So many are prepping for a hurricane, but what could be lurking is an issue, a radioactive issue (God forbid!) in my state of North Carolina. It’s not going to be good for anyone on the Eastern Seaboard….! I’m hoping as you might be thinking- BS! But I thought it wise to mention this so you will at least be aware that the USA is vulnerable when it comes to our nuclear plants. Forget terrorism…obtuse weather and a faulty back up or sabotaged coolant system is all we really need…THAT SUCKS! Anyway; enjoy the link:
“At least twelve operating nuclear reactors are in the predicted path of Hurricane Florence, which has been upgraded to a category 4 storm as it surges toward the U.S. East Coast. According to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which offers an interactive map of active nuclear reactors, two plants are vulnerable to both heavy rainfall and the expected storm surge which could bring a surge of up to 20 feet of ocean water pouring into coastal areas.
Those two reactors, located NE of Myrtle Beach, North Carolina, are known as “Brunswick Steam Electric Plant, Unit 1” and “Brunswick Steam Electric Plant, Unit 1.”
Each unit produces nearly 1,000 MWe of electricity, and they are both built on the General Electric “Type 4” power plant design, which is almost identical to the GE nuclear power plant design used in the Fukushima-Daiichi reactors in Japan. All of these reactors are designed and constructed as “boiling-water reactors” or BWRs. The designs are decades old, and they are subject to catastrophic failures and even core meltdowns that release radioactive isotopes directly into the atmosphere and surrounding areas…..”

My BIG QUESTION?
WILL THEY TELL PEOPLE DIRECTLY IF THERE WAS AN INCIDENT; OR WILL THEY DOWNPLAY IT AS THE (msm) MEDIA DID WITH FUKUSHIMA, JAPAN????

Hurricane Florence Forecast to Hit Near Brunswick Nuclear Power Plant in North Carolina
UPDATE 1-U.S. nuclear power plants prepare for Hurricane Florence
Sept 11 (Reuters) - Several nuclear power reactors in North
and South Carolina and Virginia on Tuesday started to prepare
for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to hit the coast as a
major hurricane on Friday.
The storm threatened to make landfall with massive waves and
winds of up to 130 mile per hour (209 km per hour), making it a
Category 3 or 4 storm on a five-step scale, the National
Hurricane Center in Miami warned.
There are 16 nuclear reactors in North Carolina, South
Carolina and Virginia, the states expected to suffer the most
damage from Florence.
Florence will most likely affect Duke Energy Corp's
1,870-megawatt (MW) Brunswick and 932-MW Harris nuclear plants
in North Carolina and, if it turns north, Dominion Energy Inc's
1,676-MW Surry plant in Virginia, Roger Hannah, spokesman
for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) Region 2
office in Atlanta said on Tuesday.
One megawatt can power about 1,000 U.S. homes.
Duke said it could take days to several weeks to restore
power to all customers after a storm like Florence depending on
the extent of damage and post-storm conditions.
"We anticipate Hurricane Florence to be a historic storm
that will impact all customers," said Grace Rountree, a
spokeswoman for the company. Duke serves 4 million customers in
Duke's Brunswick nuclear plant is located near Southport,
which is close to where Florence is expected to hit. It is about
4 miles (6 km) from the coast and about 30 miles south of
Wilmington, North Carolina. The NRC said in a 2004 report that
all of the safety-related structures at Brunswick were
waterproof up to 22 feet (6.7 meters) above sea level.
Several hurricanes have passed close to Brunswick since the
two reactors there entered service in 1975 and 1977, including
Hurricane Fran in 1996 and Diana in 1984, both Category 3
storms. Hurricane Hugo, a powerful Category 4 storm, made
landfall about 150 miles southwest of Brunswick in South
Carolina in 1989.
Duke spokeswoman Mary Kathryn Green said that since the
accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan in 2011 all
U.S. nuclear plants have installed more safety equipment,
including portable pumps and generators.
To prepare for the storm, nuclear operators check on backup
diesel generators to make sure they have enough fuel, conduct
site walk downs and secure any loose equipment that could become
a projectile in the wind, said Hannah at the NRC.
"Most of the plants have gone through or are going through
their pre-storm preparations now," Hannah said.
About 12 hours before the hurricane arrives, the reactors at
the nuclear plants will be shut down, Hannah said.
