The FAA has issued the following directive, shutting down airspace over the plant:

Come on main stream media.....what is the delay with this news???
According to NRC records, there have been at least 154 fires at nuclear plants since 1995, an average of 10 a year. On June 7, a fire  at the Fort Calhoun nuclear plant in Nebraska temporarily knocked out cooling to a pool holding spent fuel at the site, prompting an emergency declaration.
More new flood waters will hit this Nuke Plant into the weekend.....hope they don't start getting flooded out like "Fuk.................
This is hoax. Here is what one reader said.
"Sir, I found your website while following the news about the flooding. Iâm a Nebraskan and aware with the Fort Calhoun plant. However, when I did some research, I found no record of a âlevel 4 emergency.â There is a level 1 alert, issued on 6/6, regarding the flooding. In response, the Omaha Public Power District built levees around the plant, which remains dry. There was also a level 2 alert, issued on 6/7, when an electrical fire caused a cooling pump to fail. According to the report, the fire was extinguished shortly thereafter and the pump was restored to working order. No contaminated water left the facility.
Furthermore, the plant isnât even running right now. It was shut down in April for refueling, and when the flooding started, OPPD decided to leave it idle until August.
Yes, I think these reports are accurate. Nebraska is not a populous state. Everyone here knows someone, and there have been no rumors of nuclear contamination. If something disastrous happened, OPPD could never keep a lid on it. Next time, please do some research first. If you are a scientist, then you should know how important it is to get your facts straight.
Airspace Over Flooded Nebraska Nuclear Power Plant Still Closed

This is obviously not a Fukashima situation but with ADDITIONAL flood waters now released this plant is definitely concerned with their current situation heading into the weekend.
another new article:
But the FAA has enacted a no-fly zone over the Fort Calhoun nuke plant, which was damaged by a fire and flooding from the Missouri river.
Here's the report from The Nation:
A shocking report prepared by Russiaâs Federal Atomic Energy Agency (FAAE) on information provided to them by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) states that the Obama regime has ordered a âtotal and completeâ news blackout relating to any information regarding the near catastrophic meltdown of the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant located in Nebraska.
According to this report, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant suffered a âcatastrophic loss of coolingâ to one of its idle spent fuel rod pools on 7 June after this plant was deluged with water caused by the historic flooding of the Missouri River which resulted in a fire causing the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to issue a âno-fly banâ over the area.
Located about 20 minutes outside downtown Omaha, the largest city in Nebraska, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant is owned by Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) who on their website denies their plant is at a âLevel 4â emergency by stating: âThis terminology is not accurate, and is not how emergencies at nuclear power plants are classified.â
Russian atomic scientists in this FAAE report, however, say that this OPPD statement is an âoutright falsehoodâ as all nuclear plants in the world operate under the guidelines of the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) which clearly states the âeventsâ occurring at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant do, indeed, put it in the âLevel 4â emergency category of an âaccident with local consequencesâ thus making this one of the worst nuclear accidents in US history.
Though this report confirms independent readings in the United States of ânegligible release of nuclear gassesâ related to this accident it warns that by the Obama regimes censoring of this event for âpolitical purposesâ it risks a âserious blowbackâ from the American public should they gain knowledge of this being hidden from them.
Again, way ahead of the power curve when I first post these threads.............
Floodwaters surround nuke plant after breach
lots of pix and more info, I was looking at this earlier.
