LOL. This was not a "LOCA", and it will not keep the plant down for a year. LOCA's are based on line breaks, this was likely a valve leak issue. It's not uncommon to have drywell inleakage, but within limits. NRC Technical specifications limit this to a certain amount, they just happened to exceed it.
