None of the main roads are passable, according to Joey Ledford, a spokesman for the NRC, the News & Observer reported. “The plant is safe. The reactors are in hot stand-by mode 3 shutdown.”
Ledford added to Fox that the nuclear plant is stable and poses no threat to public safety, and meanwhile, no floodwaters have breached the facility.
Officials said the plant is accessible from one route due to the floodwaters. However, there are not multiple routes available, and the plant was placed under an “unusual event,” Fox reported.
