Earthquake-Nuclear Reactors
(wgvu) - BRIDGMAN, Mich. (AP) - Two of Michigan's three nuclear power
plants have exercised emergency plans following an early morning
earthquake that shook southern Illinois.
The plants have not shut down their reactors because of the
5.2-magnitude quake, and they have reported no problems.
The facilities that took emergency measures are in southwestern
Michigan. Both are operating normally again.
Spokesmen for the Cook plant in the Berrien County community of
Bridgman and the Palisades plant in Van Buren County's Covert
Township say nothing unusual was found during inspections of those
plants near Lake Michigan.
No emergency plans were implemented at the Fermi 2 plant in
Monroe County's Frenchtown Township alongside Lake Erie in
southeastern Michigan.
