Event Text

NOTIFICATION OF UNUSUAL EVENT - HURRICANE WARNING

"At 2300 today, the National Weather Service issued a hurricane warning for the area including Turkey Point Nuclear Units 3 & 4. On that basis, a Notice of Unusual Event was declared at 2314 [EDT]. In anticipation of severe weather, the site has completed proceduralized high wind preparations. Our plants have been specifically built to withstand natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, flooding and tidal surges. This approach will ensure the safety of operations and our employees and the communities surrounding our plants.

"Both units are currently stable at 100% power level.

"The NRC Resident Inspector has been informed."

No safety systems are out of service. The electrical grid is stable but grid risk is high.
