The Moment of Truth for the Oroville Dam-New Data Indicates the Coming Failure

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 – 12:10.

I spoke with Paul Preston late last night and he indicated that some people, downstream from the Oroville Dam have packed up and left because of the anticipated dam failure. I asked Paul Preston, “How close is the dam to failing?” Preston replied “It could go by this weekend”.. His comments, in part, are based upon the dire weather forecast in which intense rainfall is forecasted between Wednesday May 15 and Sunday, May 19th. This is significant because this could greatly add to the inflow and the outflow data which shows an extreme imbalance. And when we consider that the dam is 12 feet from overtopping, the danger multiplies exponentially. When any structure takes on more water, whether it be a ship or a dam, it is going to fail/sink.

Paul Preston and myself had an intense conversation about the timing of my next article on the Oroville Dam. We both decided that putting out this progress report on the conditions related to the dam was prudent because it could save lives, before it is too late.

This article is a progress report. However, it is also a warning to the residents in the Central Valley which lie below the Oroville Dam and are in the direct path of the torrent of water that will be released when the dam fails. Some are leaving and some more will undoubtedly leave before it is too late. However, we many unsuspecting potential victims that are oblivious to the present set of conditions. This article is aimed at getting the present state of the Dam in front of as many people in the Central Valley as possible.

NO SECURITY AT DAM: Grouting to Stop the Leaks at Dam

Paul Preston has previously related to me that the California State Government has a financial motivation to see the dam fail based on the following:

  • The State of California is broke and the state is quickly reaching a state of insolvency.
  • If the Oroville Dam fails, the state will instantly quality for over a billion dollars in federal disaster aid.
  • The state has motive to see the dam fail.

Based on these facts, one can understand why when security of the Oroville Dam disappeared for 32 hours, foul play would be suspected. We have already seen the state dynamite the earthen sides of the dam and the constant flow of trucks and their subsequent vibrations are of concern to the locals in that they believe that the activity could contribute to the failure of the dam. Subsequently, tension and emotions are running high.

The Data Speaks for Itself

The following chart, as one can clearly see, is from the State of California. In the preliminary comments, one can see that data reporting is problematic when it comes to the Oroville Dam. However, obtained records, listed below the comments indicates a serious problem what will eventually result in overtopping the dam. This in turn will lead to the ultimate failure of the spillway and the emergency spillway and the dam will fail.

I am told that the California data which speaks to “inflow” and “outflow” are being purposely understated. However, even if we use California’s state government figures, one can only conclude that disaster is coming and with the water level only 12 feet from the top, disaster is coming sooner rather than later.

Please note the highlighted columns. One can clearly see, that within the last 24 hours, the dam is clearly taking on more water than it can release. And with a compromised spillway, the failure of the dam will be hastened. Remember, the latest weather forecast is calling for heavy rain between Wednesday and Sunday.

Latest Photos From Paul Preston’s Agenda 21’s Radio Website

The latest photos provided by the California State Department of Water Resources shows increased leakage on the main Oroville Dam spillway. Two photos taken on the morning of May 12, 2019 show overnight leaks have NOT gone away but increased over the last week. Attempts by the DWR to use various injection solutions have failed to deter the water behind the spillway plates..

The photo above provided by the DWR was taken on the afternoon of May 11, 2019 shows less leakage. This is due to the afternoon sun drying out the leaks.   

The Risk of Inaction

A policy decision has been with regard to the threat. Every time an article is published on the CSS site, about the condition of the Oroville Dam, until failure, the dangers will be published along with any new information. The following represents the risk associated with a catastrophic dam failure.

  1. A breach of the dam would release a 30 foot wall of water traveling at 75 MPH.
  2. The escaping water would reach Sacramento within 45 minutes (long estimate).
  3. Over one million people lie in the path of the water.
  4. After the dam fails, there is not time to evacuate the population.
  5. Thirty percent of all American retail crosses this area from ports on the Pacific Ocean. The effect on the economy would be catastrophic.
  6. The Central Valley is one of the most bountiful agricultural areas in the world. No crops would grow for years. Combined with the Midwest flooding, famines will result and extreme food inflation.
  7. America would teeter upon collapse.

Above all else, lives are most important and the entire region should be evacuated. If the crisis is being overblown, why are there hundreds of trucks at the dam? Why are they working on the dam night and day. This is not normal maintenance and the data strongly indicates a disaster is at hand. Evacuation should be immediate. (Click to Source)

Very unusual March-like storm to blast California with drenching rain, mountain snow and severe weather

 

After sunshine and pleasant weather grace California early this week, a powerful storm system will barrel into the state during the middle to latter part of the week. The return of a March-like weather pattern, driven by a large dip in the jet stream, will be the culprit for driving this rare storm into the West Coast. Another unseasonal Atmospheric River will cause chaos in California.

Heavy rain

Rain will first move into Northern California on Wednesday before overspreading the rest of the state by Wednesday night and Thursday.

By the time the storm moves into the Four Corners region later on Friday, the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and parts of Northern and coastal California will receive between 1 to 3 inches of rain. The hardest-hit locations may receive as much as 4 or 5 inches of rain.

Cali Storm 3 pm
Between 1 and 2 inches of rain is expected in San Francisco, with 0.50 to 1 inch of rain possible in Los Angeles.
San Diego may even receive up to 0.50 of an inch of rain from this system.

Even parts of the San Joaquin Valley will have to deal with showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday night into Thursday that could produce localized heavy downpours and some incidents of small hail.

It is extremely unusual for a storm system to bring this amount of rainfall across the state this late in the spring season.

Average rainfall during the month of May ranges from just under 0.75 of an inch in Sacramento to just under 0.50 of an inch in San Francisco and Fresno. San Diego typically receives around 0.10 of an inch for the month.

These cities, as well as many other locations across the state, will receive two to three times their normal monthly rainfall in the span of only two or three days later this week.

Travel and flash flooding

Travel will turn slippery with numerous delays on the roadways after the recent stretch of generally dry weather. Motorists traveling on Interstates 5 and 80, as well as secondary roadways, should allow extra time to reach their destination and reduce speed to lessen the risk of hydroplaning.

Lengthy flight delays and cancellations both into and out of the major hubs along the West coast will also be likely, and some flights may have to be rerouted as gusty winds accompany the rain.

In addition, flash flooding of streets and poor drainage areas, as well as smaller streams and creeks, will be a danger to anybody living in flood-prone areas.

Cold temperature

Abnormally chilly air will accompany the clouds and rain later this week, with high temperatures struggling to reach the lower to middle 60s F across the Central Valley on Thursday. Normal highs during the middle of May are in the 80s.

Motorists traveling across I-80’s Donner Pass may even have to deal with snow on the roadway for a brief time if snowfall rates become high enough.

Severe Storms

In addition to drenching rain and mountain snow, there is the potential for a few heavy, gusty and perhaps locally severe thunderstorms to be spawned, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

The greatest impact from the storms will be for hail and strong wind gusts. However, on occasion, severe thunderstorms can produce brief tornadoes and waterspouts.

The potential for severe thunderstorms will extend well inland beyond California as the storm moves along to portions of Nevada, Arizona and Utah at the end of the week,” Sosnowski said.

With the copious amounts of rain and blast of chilly air ahead, water temperatures in streams and lakes will continue to run low well into June. Anybody attempting to cool off in the state’s waterways when heat returns will need to be aware of the dangers of cold water shock.

Good News

The heavy rain and mountain snow will have some benefits in the long run heading into the summer and fall.

This late-season storm will help prevent a shortage of the water supply during the summer and fall across the state,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.

It Is No Longer a Matter of IF, but When the Oroville Dam Will Fail

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Sunday, May 5, 2019 – 14:05.

Since 2016, Paul Preston and myself have extensively covered the damage to the Oroville Dam and the danger that a dam failure would pose to the communities between Oroville and Sacramento. Despite photographic evidence, insider information and a team of observers that keep the dam under constant surveillance, Paul and myself have been called “fear mongers”. I will gladly wear that title if our efforts will culminate in the saving of lives.

In 2017, the water levels and subsequent spillage and leakage reached such a critical point that Butte County evacuate nearly 200,000 people. Despite this action by Butte County officials, Paul and myself were still called fear mongers, again. “Nothing to see here please move along”.

Relative Calm Back to Crisis

After a period of relative calm following the February 2017 evacuation, the situation at the dam has reach an unparalleled crisis which appears far worse than the conditions that led to the previous evacuation just over two years ago.

Below, there is a silent video which contains proprietary photos. Some of the photos come from the surrounding high ground, some from aerial surveillance with night vision equipment and some of the photos come from some unidentified person inside of the Department of Water Resources. How do I know there is insider involvement in this disclosure? Simple, there are parts of the dam that are off limits to the public where there are photos that are published on the Youtube video.

The dam is presently 13 feet from over-topping. However, this is not the main danger that could ultimately lead to a catastrophic dam failure.

The Identified Dangers

As previously identified on the CSS, the structural integrity of the spillway is severely compromised. The previously published photos clearly established the compromising of the structural integrity of the spillway. However, as we most recently exposed, the last line of defense, the OG Weir is in danger of over-topping because of the high levels of water on the Oroville Lake. This directly impacts the structural integrity of the dam. Additionally, the video shows that the upstream dams are at or near capacity. If anyone of these dams is compromised, the Oroville Dam will fail within 30 minutes and the spring run-off from the snow melt is under way.

The video below, derived from surveillance photos obtained between April 30-May 4th, clearly shows more severe cracks in the dam. Fissures are beginning to be observable.

Insider photos, taken inside the dam’s control room, shows a missing turbine. The dam was designed with six turbines each for expelling water (outflow) to balance inflow (eg snow runoff that would drive the water levels up. The video shows a chart that Paul and I have discussed before. The turbines are compromised to the point to where they can only expel about 10-11,000 cubic feet of water per second. The soon-to-be inflow water  levels approaching the dam is catalogued in public documents (shown on the video) between 19-2,400 cubic feet per second. This is a prescription for catastrophe. The COMBINATION of all these variables, mentioned and not mentioned in this article, speaks clearly to the fact that this dam is compromised and failure could happen at any time.

The Department of Water Resources is buying time, but not much time, by beginning the construction of a pool on the other side of the mountain. This is known as a coffer dam and they are doing everything under the cover of darkness. My source as well as Paul Preston say that this buy them a week, more or less.

Motivation for the Deep State Sabotage

California is broke. The failure of the dam will result in a billion dollars of federal aid, immediately. However, the goals of the Deep State are super-imposed on this event. Many of us in the Independent Media (IM) have been saying that before a we can be militarily attacked as a nation, we must be weakened within. This is one of two events I have highlighted that could precipitate such a weakening. Remember, the CALEXIT movement, favored by former Governor, Jerry Brown, is part and parcel to the coming destruction. CALEXIT has failed to win the state as an alternative to the formation of the 51st State under Paul Preston’s guidance. CALEXIT is desperate and it is controlled by the Deep State. Therefore, the failure of the dam would benefit all.

If the dam fails, one of the richest agricultural area in world would be no more. Spot famines would occur. Retail traffic would not make it out of California and would devastate the economy. This is the weakness that the Deep State desires. It is when we are in the throes of this event, that we will likely be attacked.

When the dam breaks, the water will coming rushing out  of the dam will be traveling at 70MPH and create a wall of water about 30 feet high. The water will reach Sacramento in about 45 minutes. My experts tell me that the Central Valley of California would take 72 hours to evacuate. It is unknown if an evacuation order would permit the necessary time to evacuate properly.

At this point, I find myself in an ethical dilemma. I don’t wish to unduly panic people. However, the video makes it clear that I would evacuate if asked to do so. At minimum, it would be wise to locate a location that is 40 feet above the ground. One should be preparing their bug out bag now. And as I told Paul Preston this morning, I would be evacuating my family right now. (Click to Source)

This video will make it crystal clear why I am sounding the alarm.

Mississippi River Breaks 1993 Flood Record

As severe rain and thunderstorms continue to hammer the Midwest, flooding along the Mississippi River has broken quarter-century record. Water levels at Rock Island, Illinois, reached a new record peak, and other spots along the river could also reach new record highs if the rain doesn’t stop.

The water level at Rock Island rose 7.7 feet (2.3 meters) above flood stage as of 8 am local time on Friday, according to the National Weather Service. Rock Island is about 175 miles west of Chicago, and the previous record was set in June 1993, when the upper Mississippi and Missouri Rivers flooded the surrounding area, according to Bloomberg.

Map

Though the area has experienced substantial precipitation in the past few months, in 1993 “we had rain after rain after rain throughout the spring and summer,” said Justin Palmer, a hydrologist with the U.S. North Central River Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minn.

“It is kind of a one-off right now,” Palmer said. “But the potential is there as we get more rain for the river to stay high. We are definitely vulnerable to a rain event.”

But according to forecasts, the flooding could get worse. About 1.5 to 2 inches of rain is forecast to fall across Iowa and Illinois through May 10, the US Weather Prediction Center said. Between January and March, much of the Midwest will have had one of the 10 worst rain and snow seasons.

Between Jan. 1 and Thursday, 15.1 inches of rain fell in Davenport, Iowa, across the river from Rock Island.

High waters levels, which have persisted for months, have slowed the shipments of agriculture commodities like corn and grain, even forcing the CME Group to declare force majeure as some shipping stations became impossible to reach. (Click to Source)

Flooding threatens more than a million private wells in U.S. Midwest

Michael Burke
The Hill
Tue, 26 Mar 2019 11:42 UTC

Flooding in the Midwest is posing a risk of contamination to more than 1 million private wells that supply drinking water to rural areas in the region, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

The AP reported that the National Ground Water Association, a trade group, said there are 1.1 million private wells in 300 flooded counties across 10 states in the Midwest.

Those states are Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin, according to the AP.

Flooding creates the possibility that water from the flood will get into the wells and contaminate the water.

map wells

Flooding creates the possibility that water from the flood will get into the wells and contaminate the water.

Liesa Lehmann, the private-water section chief for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, told the AP that any wells within a flood area “are certainly going to be vulnerable to contamination.”

“Anyone who has a private well within a flood plain area of a major river, those wells are certainly going to be vulnerable to contamination,” Lehmann said.

Lehmann added that well owners should assume that their drinking water is contaminated if they see floodwater near or over their wells.

Chuck Job, the National Ground Water Association’s regulatory affairs manager, told the AP that when the flooding is over, the well water should be pumped out and the well should be disinfected. The water should then be tested to ensure that it’s safe to drink, Job added. (Click to Source)

“As Many As A Million Calves Lost In Nebraska” – Beef Prices In The U.S. To Escalate Dramatically In The Coming Months

According to Agriculture Secretary Sunny Purdue, there “may be as many as a million calves lost in Nebraska” due to the catastrophic flooding that has hit the state.  This is not a rumor, this is not an exaggeration, and this is not based on any sort of speculation.  This number comes to us directly from the top agriculture official in the entire country, and it means that the economic toll from the recent floods is far greater than most of us had anticipated.  You can watch Purdue make this quote on Fox Business right here, and it is important to remember that this number is just for one state.  It is hard to imagine what the final numbers will look like when the livestock losses for all of the states affected by the flooding are tallied up.  This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and the National Weather Service is telling us that there will be more catastrophic flooding throughout the middle portion of the nation for the next two months.

Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts says that this is the worst flooding that his state has ever experienced.  Ricketts originally told us that 65 out of the 93 counties in his state have declared a state of emergency, but that number has now risen to 74.  Hundreds of millions of dollars of damage has been done in his state alone, and that is just an initial estimate.

It deeply offends me that the big mainstream news channels have spent so little time covering this disaster.  This is the biggest news story of 2019 so far by a very wide margin, but because it happened in the middle of the country they are not giving it the attention that it deserves.

In the short-term, food prices will not rise too dramatically because the stores are selling the food that has already been produced.  But as the months roll along, you will start to notice food prices steadily increase.  Millions of bushels of wheat, corn and soybeans have been destroyed by the flooding so far, and thousands of farmers will not be able to plant crops at all this year.  And the livestock losses that we have already experienced will be felt for many years to come.

Beef will never be lower in price than it is right now.  So if you are a beef lover, you may want to stock up.

When the flooding initially came, it happened so fast that many farmers were powerless to do anything about it.  In Sherman County, farmer Richard Panowicz says that ice and debris were “exploding from the river”…

“Within 15 minutes it was devastation,” Panowicz said, with water, ice and debris exploding from the river with nothing to stop it.

He described some ice chunks as 3 feet thick and the size of an extended-cab pickup.

Panowicz said a lot of the dead calves he’s picked up have had broken legs. Many of the carcasses were found by neighbors.

In other cases, farmers were faced with a heartbreaking choice between saving their animals or saving their neighbors.  One farmer that rushed to help his neighbors ended up losing 30 calves to the floodwaters…

Before Mahon could think about his animals, he needed to help his neighbors. As the water rose, he rescued one with his tractor, the floodwater lifting it up and spinning him 180 degrees. He helped save three more people — including an 85-year-old woman and a 9-month-old baby — with a boat, he said.

Then he could start counting his losses. He estimated the flood carried away 30 calves and almost as many cows, nearly $50,000 out of his pocket. It might be more.

Can you imagine the grief that these farming families are enduring right now?

Many of them are financially ruined and will never be able to go back to farming again.

Dave Eaton’s family has been farming the same plot of land for 152 years.  But now the Missouri River has swallowed his farm, and with much more flooding still to come, he anticipates that his farm with be underwater “all year”…

The farm has been in his family 152 years. He was born there. He’s been thinking about what he’s learned about the Missouri’s upstream reservoirs and the mountain snowpack, and what it means for his land.

“It’s not like I’m new to the area,” he said. “My gut feeling is we’re going to be under water all year.”

And he is definitely not the only one that has had his year ruined.

Panowicz says that the hay and silage that were meant to feed his cattle this season were soaked “in 3 to 4 feet of water”…

The hay and silage to feed his cattle are soaked after sitting in 3 to 4 feet of water.

Sand now covers much of the pastureland he uses to graze his herd of commercial Angus cows and purebred Charolais bulls.

And 40 of his recently born calves died in the flood.

So what is he supposed to do?

Some Nebraska ranchers will bravely try to rebuild, but for Panowicz it appears that the end has come…

“I’ll probably sell the (remaining) cows and calves and get out of the cattle business,” said Panowicz, 65. “I’ve been around cows since the early 1970s.”

I could go on and on, but I think that you definitely get the point.

America’s farmers have been utterly devastated.  America’s cattle producers have been utterly devastated.  Food production is going to be way, way below expectations, and food prices are going to escalate dramatically in the coming months.  This is the kind of scenario that I have been warning about, and this crisis is going to continue to get worse as all the snow from one of the snowiest winters on record melts.  In Minnesota, there are still more than 20 inches of snow on the ground in some places, and all of that water has to go somewhere.

This is the biggest national crisis that has hit the United States in many years, but the mainstream media and millions of Americans that do not live in the affected areas still do not seem to get it.

Of course once food prices start getting painfully high at our supermarkets everyone will start complaining, but there will not be any easy solutions. (Click to Source)

Extreme Danger From Within and From Without

Submitted by Dave Hodges on Thursday, March 28, 2019 – 09:12.

America is facing unprecedented dangers from within and without. Our dangers are both foreign and domestic. This article will highly only one of each to illustrate the devastating challenges that America faces. The Oroville Dam Is Once Again Nearing Collapse In 2017, the Oroville Dam was near a complete collapse and over a million persons would have been risk. Further, the agricultural risk Central Valley of California would have been destroyed and this would have led to extreme food shortages in the United States and would have led to spot famines in other parts of the world. From American Thinker:

Over $1.1 billion spent to repair Oroville Dam and now it appears that the repairs were in vain. Once again, and as I have reported before, the Oroville Dame is once again failing and in danger of collapse as water is seeping through the newly rebuilt spillway which now all but promises to bring new mass evacuations. According to national dam expert Scott Cahill of Watershed Services of Ohio, Oroville Dam is on the same failure track as in 2017, with visible water seepage trickling from the foot of the dam and dozens of points along the dam’s principal spillway.  Cahill warns that warming temperatures magnified by precipitation is a growing threat to the dam. American Thinker reported on March 1 that the Sierra snow pack was at a record 113 inches, but another 44 inches fell in the next 10 days.  With temperatures spiking this week to 75 degrees in the valleys and 41 degrees in the high mountains, dam inflows are running twice the outflows, and the water levels rose from 800 to 839 feet.

In conversations I have had with Paul Preston, it is clear that the dam is in very big trouble and our dire warning of two years ago are once again, in order. In the opening I detailed the consequences of the dam collapsing. This event would accomplish what CALEXIT tried to accomplish which is the neutralization of California as an asset for United States. A Dam break of this magnitude could very well collapse the American economy when combined with the long-term effects of Midwest flooding.

The Russians Are At Our Backdoor

It is clear that Putin has judged America to be a nation that supports globalism. He apparently has abandoned the idea of combing forces with America in order to attack the New World Order controlled bankers and their main supporting nations. Putin obviously believes that the “swamp” is too deep in order for Trump to turn America around. I recently received an email detailing Russian training going in the Sierra Madre.

Dave- Normally I don’t do this. I have a family member that’s prominent in military intelligence I won’t give you the branch for obvious reasons. This is not Q stuff that’s disinfo. However he told my immediate family that a deal was brokered with Mexico to bring Russian troops for military drills and staging in Northern Mexico. You don’t have to believe me and I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t I have nothing to hide or lose by telling you this but look for reports of something of that nature in the months to come. Whether the media covers it or not is a different story. Anyway take care Dave I’m sure you understand the implications of what that will cause if that’s what happens. I assume the Russians have finally had it with our form of foreign policy. Also there’s info that a N-warhead was smuggled across during the last migrant caravan. I can’t confirm that maybe you have the resources too. This border wall isn’t about immigration its about war. 

I have been able to confirm all of the claims made in the email above except for the claim that terrorists smuggle a nuclear weapon across the border.

  1. Russians are in the state of Sinoloa and training with the Chinese (confirmed by ARSOF officer)
  2. I previously reported on the changing condition of the border wall. It has changed in design from preventing migrants from entering the country, to one of repelling a light infantry invasion. This information came to me from a trusted DHS source.

Conclusion

This article has only covered two challenges facing this country. You must feel the sense of urgency and spread. People have a right to know so the can better prepare. How are your preparations? Do you have an adequate supply of guns, gold, ammo, medicine, tools and allies?  (Click to Source)

Let’s talk about food SHORTAGE: US grain bins collapse under catastrophic Iowa floods

After millions of dead calves in Nebraska, now thousands of tons of grain lost in Iowa! Flood waters are causing havoc in some mid-western states – Iowa; Illinois; Missouri; Kansas; South Dakota; Minnesota; and Nebraska – and have resulted in an estimated $3 billion in damages so far. The video below by Iowa resident Gracie Newman shows just a fraction of the losses that have been incurred as a result of the unprecedented flooding.

As can be seen from the video, at this location alone, at least five bins have burst, destroying thousands of tons of grain.

Rising water levels have breached levees along the Missouri River and forced several towns to evacuate.

It was also reported that in the state of Nebraska (west of Iowa) the flooding has already caused more than $1 billion in damages, with more than 2,000 homes and 340 businesses lost.

Missouri Bin Collapse

In a separate incident, a grain bin which was reportedly holding 21,591t – or 850,000 bushels – of corn collapsed in the state of Missouri, in the early hours of Monday, March 11.

GRAIN BIN

The grain was washed onto a nearby road and also blocked a railway line once its container’s walls split. No one was injured in the incident, which happened at a Bunge plant in LaGrange, Missouri. (Click to Source)

Gov. Pete Ricketts: Worst flooding damage in our state’s history – As many as a million calves lost in Nebraska

“This is the biggest disaster, as far as damage, we’ve ever experienced in our state,” says Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts.

We’ve got at least 400 million in livestock losses and 140 million in crop losses, says Ricketts.

There may be as many as a million calves lost in Nebraska,” says agriculture secretary Sonny Purdue, United States Secretary of Agriculture.

Hurricane Florence achieves DIRECT HIT on Brunswick nuclear power plant in Southport, NC… pray for our safety

Friday, September 14, 2018 by: Mike Adams

hurricane-florence-landfall-nc

(Natural News) Hurricane Florence, which achieved landfall early Friday morning, has achieved a direct hit on the Brunswick nuclear power facility in Southport, NC. The eye of the hurricane — where the winds are the most severe — is right now swirling directly over the nuclear power containment buildings, battering them with 100+ MPH winds.

As Natural News reported earlier, there are at least twelve active nuclear power plants in the direct path of Hurricane Florence. Many Americans are concerned about whether these nuclear power facilities are prepared to survive a worst-case scenario of a direct hit.

Now, we know that direct hit has taken place. Thankfully, hurricane winds dropped from 140 MPH to around 100 MPH over the last 48 hours. This may be the saving grace that prevents these nuclear power plants from being severely damaged or destroyed by the storm.

As the map shows, below, the Brunswick power plant is located just South of Wilmington, North Carolina. This is precisely where the eye of the hurricane made landfall:

This is precisely where the eye of Hurricane Florence made landfall:

Here’s the National Hurricane Center’s animation and warning text:

North Carolina officials are currently reporting that nearly half a million customers have lost power.

Media lies to the public about the shutting down of nuclear power plants

The Brunswick nuclear power plant is one of several that have been reportedly “shut down” before the storm’s arrival. But the media, not surprisingly, has been systematically lying to the public about these shut downs.

Nuclear power plants require weeks of cooling pumps to function for an effective shutdown. They can’t simply be switched off in an instant like a light switch. If the cooling pumps fail at any time during the weeks-long shutdown procedure, the nuclear fuel rods can boil off the coolant water and rise in temperature until a nuclear meltdown occurs.

None of this is being reported to the public by the lying media, which routinely whitewashes the risks of nuclear power.

At this point, all we can do is hope and pray the Brunswick nuclear facilities withstand the winds and floods of the storm. Even if something goes wrong with one or more of these facilities, rest assured the media will lie and cover it up even while radiation is released into the atmosphere, just like they all did during the Fukushima catastrophe.

Stay informed. Read Nuclear.news and check for storm update videos on REAL.video.
