Entergy Nuclear misleads about how fast nuclear emergency could break

LowHud.com reports that Entergy Indian Point and surrounding counties in the Lower Hudson River region near New York City took part in emergency preparedness drills. Incredibly, Entergy spokesman Jim Steets was quoted as saying “In real life, these things are very slow developing.” This flies in the face of the reality of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, where Fukushima Daiichi Unit 1 very likely had begun to melt down and release significant amounts of radioactivity less than an hour after the 9.0 earthquake had struck on March 11, 2011, and before the 45 foot tall tsunami arrived.
