"Unusual event" at the nuclear plant

To all those listening to the news and are scared of the plant near the 5.8 quake in Virginia. An "unusual event" is declared at ANY nuclear powerplant when an earthquake, brush fire, etc., What happens is they shut the powerplant down, and run through the plant testing systems structures etc., to ensure the plant is safe to operate. The news media is trying to make a big deal out of it but this is standard procedure after any event.

Don't let CNN or FOX get you scared about it to get ratings.

Most nuclear powerplants have them.

The media is like a big spoon, they like to stir the pot.

Good to know. Using trigger words like that though can be misleading when your media is corrupted by Yellow Journalism.

Right now I'm sitting by the phone, waiting for a call from the American Red Cross. I'm hoping to jump on a plane and fly back to help the victim's of this real disaster. I would also like to be part of the team to help lift that plastic chair and make things better!

Officials state: "No nuclear radiation was released at this time due to the chair falling over, however, the USNRC is keeping a close watch on the situation"
