Business Insider: Second Nebraska Nuclear Plant Threatened By Flooding

Have YOU heard about the 2 nuclear plants in Nebraska threatened by floodwater?

If not, you're not alone.

Even before it was acknowledged that the second nuclear plant was being threatened, the threat to the first plant seems to have been rather - I dunno - methinks hush-hush is quite apropos.

As you probably recall, the Fukushima nuclear disaster involving three nuclear reactors and at least 2 - if not - 3 nuclear melt-downs (no, I'm not kidding.) resulted not from the earthquake, but from the floodwater and its effects.

But... fear not, good people!  At least that's what the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is saying (though not in those exact words).

"Officials say a key difference between the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan..." and the threats to Nebraska plants is that the NE plants "... have had weeks to prepare flood defenses." *

* They've "... had weeks to prepare", huh?

Well, that's all well and good... but, honestly, just because someone has had weeks to do anything - that doesn't mean they actually did it/did enough, now does it?
