Hurricane Sandy Forces Postponement of Ft. Calhoun Meeting on Tuesday

Due to the approach of Hurricane Sandy, the NRC has postponed Tuesday’s scheduled Commission briefing on the status of the Fort Calhoun nuclear plant.

Chairman Macfarlane agreed with the staff’s recommendation to postpone the hearing out of concern for the safety of members of the public who might want to attend the briefing, especially those who may be traveling to Rockville and may have difficulty getting here because of flight disruptions.

The briefing will be rescheduled. Please check our Public Meetings Page and the Commission Schedule on our website for updates. This does not affect the schedule for the meeting between NRC officials and officials of the Omaha Public Power District announced on Friday. That meeting is still scheduled for Nov. 15 in Blair, Neb.
