Hurricane Florence downgraded from Category 4 to Category 2 – less dangerous

This is good news for the nuclear reactors in its path.  However, as torrential rain is predicted, it surely still remains a threat to reactors close to the sea in low-lying areas.
Hurricane Florence weakened to Category 2 by ‘tremendous’ wind shear 
By Chelsea Prince Zachary Hansen, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution  Sept 13, 2018 Hurricane Florence has weakened to a Category 2 storm in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the 11 p.m. projection by the National Hurricane Center.
Florence likely won’t restrengthen into a Category 3 before making landfall near the South Carolina-North Carolina border, making it is no longer a major hurricane, according to the latest forecast from Channel 2 Action News chief meteorologist Glenn Burns……..https://www.ajc.com/weather/hurricane-florence-could-impact-georgia-new-models-show/oxIM1OXOMNmJr6iolJqodM/

Of course, the nuclear propagandists hasten to tell us that there’s “no problem” . James Conca writes in Forbes, Hurricane Florence No Problem  For Nuclear Power Plants, (Forbes,  12/09/18) “…….. The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is watching carefully. But no one is really worried that much will happen, contrary to lots of antinuclear fearmongering.”
