The U.S Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reported Tuesday that the 793-megawatt Palisades nuclear power plant in Michigan is leaking from several locations. Entergy Corp has informed the press via Mark Savage, company spokesman, who stated that the leakage from a refueling water tank will be repaired once the reactor is cooled down. No length of time was given for the repairs to be completed.
"The event had no impact on the health and/or safety of the public" the report said. - Reuters
On Wednesday of last week on YouTube, several reports surfaced regarding an enormous boom that was heard in Michigan and for miles around. Helicopters, military planes, and land vehicles were observed by residents. No media coverage of this event could be found. There was one article on Activist Post, however, referring to independent radiation monitoring levels spiking drastically.
"In a developing story that is raising concerns over a potential nuclear cover-up by the EPA, alarming amounts of radiation were reported near the border of Indiana and Michigan and later censored by the EPA online geiger tool. The readings, which were captured in a screenshot, measured as high as 7,139 counts per minute (CPM). This is particularly startling, as the normal radiation levels are generally between 5 and 6 CPM. Sources say that a Department of Homeland Security hazmat team has now been dispatched after ‘years’ of inactivity."
If suspicions regarding last week's blast and dangerous radiation levels are true, it appears the EPA may have been involved in a cover-up which, could have enormous ramifications for the health and safety of citizens of America and Canada. The blast occured last Wednesday, June 6, and since then radiation levels over 100 times greater than the normal levels have been registered in Michigan and in surrounding states.
One citizen reporter who investigated the Michigan explosions, Bob Powell, was arrested. The link to his video is below, and his account of the day's events follows:
"At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, 6/6/2012, a mysterious explosion shook homes over hundreds of square miles in Northeastern Michigan. The ground shaking explosion was heard from Presque Isle to Lincoln, and out west as far as Hillman. The Alpena County Sheriff's Department dispatched deputies to locate the source of the blast; but no cause was ever found.
During my investigation of the cause of the explosion, I was arrested when I attempted to interview the Executive Secretary at the Alpena Combat Readiness Training center; a woman who had left me a message about the blast that very morning. I was simply trying to get her comments on camera as I've done at military bases all over the country." Watch his report here:
According to an article dated June 8th: 'Thousands of comments on articles, discussion boards, and twitter posts are surfacing regarding this event. Explosions are still reportedly being heard in rapid secession, often a large number over the course of only a few seconds.'
