The earthquake and resulting tsunami that severely damaged several of Japan's electricity-generating nuclear reactors has triggered concern by many about radiation monitoring and evacuation planning associated with the Seabrook nuclear power plant.

Maybe we can finally get the state to wake up and take notice of the fact that we have a 30 year old nuclear power plant in our backyard. If we had an earthquake or tsunami in our neck of the woods, it would be an absolute disaster. Seabrook alone can see up to 30,000 people in town during the day. The 107 bridge cannot evacuate the east side of town by itself. We don't have the infrastructure or equipment to deal with the kind of disaster that happened in Japan.

And people in town have been talking about that kind of danger for many years.

Do you want to be up to your neck in casualties in a real disaster without the equipment to deal with it?

Don't concern yourself so much about what Seabrook can do in an emergency situation. We have an EMO plan and do the drills faithfully. Stop trying to panic our town and stir up trouble with surrounding towns. You cannot convert the town of Seabrook into your way of thinking, personally or politically. Did you not pay attention to our March election? The people are not buying your speel. You don't have the equipment to make it happen. Oh and by the way, while you're in Hawaii, see if you can do something worthwhile - see if you can find Obama's birth certificate; resourceful man like yourself should be able to do that.

Max, you are wrong. The Seabrook plant is nothing like the plants in Japan that are having issues. We are not on as volatile a fault line as they are. There are multiple redundant cooling systems in place there, the final one being a flood of sea water. The reactor is 30 or so feet below sea level. Worse case scenario, it gets flooded.

We wont have a disaster like Japan's.

You are right about the 107 bridge. I fear your estimate of 30,000 people is grossly low however, especially in the summer. Our infrastructure can handle quite a bit actually. It's been training for a disaster for 30 years.
Stop trying to scare people. We're actually getting kind of sick of you.
