Florence flooding limits road access to Duke nuclear plant

Florence flooding limits road access to Duke nuclear plant(Reuters) – Duke Energy Corp said on Monday that its Brunswick nuclear power plant in North Carolina remained safely shut down despite limited road access to the site due to flooding from storm Florence. The remnants of Florence, which came ashore as a hurricane on Friday, are still dropping heavy amounts of rain on the already waterlogged Carolinas, with officials warning the worst is yet to come as swollen rivers pose a growing threat. Duke spokeswoman Mary Kathryn Green said there was road access to the Brunswick site but it was “limited access.” She said there were about 300 people at the plant.
