Is this a sensationalist headline? No.
Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant is considered America’s most dangerous nuclear plant by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (USNRC) as recent as 2011.
Over the weekend, we learned that radiation leaked out at Indian Point nuclear power plant in Westchester County just 25 miles north of The Bronx border and New York City limits. The radiation leaked into the groundwater wells raising radiation levels by as much as 65,000%. That is not a typo.
65,000%. Let that sink in.
This isn’t the first time there’s an issue at Indian Point.
