High radiation levels found at Ohio nuclear plant
Cleveland: High radiation levels recorded at a nuclear reactor in northeast Ohio have prompted a special inspection by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
The NRC says workers at the Perry Nuclear Power Plant immediately evacuated the plant on April 22 when radiation levels rose while the plant was in the process of shutting down for a refuelling outage. The commission says the plant is safe and that officials don`t believe workers were exposed to radiation levels that exceeded federal limits.
The commission says radiation levels rose when workers were removing a monitor that measures nuclear reactions during start-up and shutdown.
The nuclear reactor, owned by Akron-based FirstEnergy Corp, is about 35 miles northeast of Cleveland. A FirstEnergy spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment after business hours on Tuesday.
