Yes the reactors automatically shut down at the North Anna plant.

I hope and pray you never feel another one. I really wish ya well with the approaching storm too. Living in Mississippi all my life and I've worked for a Power Utility Company for 28 years, I've seen my share of Hurricanes and the damage they can do,so if you live near the coast or even if you don't and a evacation is ordered in your area, don't think, just go.
SO I WISH ALL OF YOU THE BEST

Yup.... all it took was the Los Prietos and the Northridge quake to close things down until they were earthquake retrofitted! Bridges, buildings, but of course we are in Cali. It will be interesting to see how Washington will respond to this

My brother is a 'mucky muck' with Amtrak in DC. I saw on the news that some of Union station was impacted by the quake. I was worried because I couldn't get ahold of my big bro, then my DD txt'ed me and told me to check Facebook! LOL When Verizon/ATT becomes overwhealmed, there's always Facebook!!!

So it was downgraded to a Cat 1? I've never been in a hurricane. I'm guessing you are having to 'batten down the hatches'. What do you do with your boats when this happens? Hope all is well with you

We pull the boats out. Crab house is at the mercy of the storm. I hope it veers out to sea.

Thanks, we`re hoping for the best too, which would be for the storm to track out to sea. I`ve also been through a couple bad hurricanes and numerous near misses and tropical storms. The whole East coast is watching this one.
