The equipment that automatically shuts down or "scrams" the plant was not affected. The Plain Dealer is wrong again.

Federal regulations and industry standards don't allow a reactor to operate without a working scram system.

Perry didn't. Each control rod has its own independent scram accumulator system.

So they didn't. Thanx for the observation.
