There has been a meltdown. This will cost millions of dollars to fix. Bypassing safety is not so smart. Do you see any steam coming from it?

LOL, no danger of a melt down here as this is a coal fired plant. Simply shut down the fuel feed and the temps do down. "china syndrome" refers to a hypothetical runaway reaction in a nuclear reactor. While a coal fired plant does have its own problems and there are some dangers a runaway is not one that we have to worry about here.

Nope, the 1/10 inch of ice only made the roads impassable to those who were unprepared or unable to drive in the conditions. Those of us who were prepared for a weather event during the winter got along just fine. Also not part of any conspiracy to hide the truth, on the contrary, I love to see the truth come out. If you understood anything about the operation of a power plant, and in this case, the operation of a coal-fired power plant, you would know that a "china syndrome" type event is impossible at this location. There are dangers associated with coal-fired power plants, but a runaway nuclear reaction is not a possibility in a power plant that does not employ a nuclear reactor.

I wasn't talking about a runaway reactor. It was about safety issues. Explain why it is down an why it is going to cost millions of dollars to get up an going again.

I was coming from west memphis a couple hours ago and I came around about a mile of army national guard jeeps,tanks,petro trucks and the whole nine yards,they said they were headed to the power plant to help evacuate the city of osceola. So you people need to get prepared.

i saw a huge ball of fire risng from the south east.
so bright it hurt my eyes if i tried to look directly at it.
i'm sure it was some sort of nuclear reactor, not sure if it was the power plant.

Your making jokes about what has happened. No nuclear plant here. Just wondered why it is down. Heard the boilers were burnt up. Heard there was safety issues an it want be running for awhile.

Yeah, I saw that also and was worried at first. After a minute I realized it was just the sun rising and now I feel much better!

The incident in Bhopal India was at a Union Carbide pesticide plant. Methyl Isocynate (used in the production of carbaryl, the common name of the pesticide SEVIN)gas was released.
Yes industrial facilities often display a windsock to determine wind direction and often it is used in the plume tracking if there is a chemical release. When I was younger I worked on a farm that was in close proximity to a number of organic orchards. Back then we used the windsock to help determine whether or not we could apply herbicides or even fertilizer without our chemicals drifting into the neighboring farms.
Also if a facility receives inbound flights from rotary wing aircraft the flight crews will often request the presence of a windsock to gauge landing conditions and aircraft placement.
