The engineer Mr.Keppel & the so called nuclear expert Margaret Harding are talking out of turn. The plant in Southport is the very same design as the plant in Japan. It is true that hurricanes give us time to prepare but if we had a similar disaster here, the result would be the same. All you have to do is look at the location of the Southport plant, it is about 10 to 12 feet above sea leval. Also this area is not immune to earthquakes or even a tsunami. These natural disasters give little or no warning. The general public doesn't understand that safety in industry does have its limits. Those limits are tied to the dollar & the risk factor. If the cost of the risk is less than the cost of a payout, then you don't spend the money to make it safer. Utilities are a business just like any other, they are there to make money. The sales pitch may be a little different but the results are the same. Spend the least amount you can to make the most you can and increase the bottom line. The two dummies above have never been in such a disaster and would not know how to react if they were. The media does not do the general public any favors by letting these people ramble on about subjects they are really not qualified to talk about. The media needs to do a better job of reporting both sides of the true story.
I'm through talking now, as Forest Gump would say, " I gotta pee "
