Nuclear Power continues its resilience
From the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission
At St. Lucie, also in Florida, operators are reducing power on Unit 1 due to salt buildup on insulators in the switchyard that supplies offsite power and plant employees are working to resolve this situation. St. Lucie Unit 2 remains at full power. Two NRC resident inspectors remain at the site, but it is expected that NRC will return to normal inspection staffing at this site, also within a day or two.

Turkey Point is still offline (from normal shutdowns) and will be restarted as soon as possible however, St Lucie continues to be online generating power for Florida as the State begins its post Irma recovery.
A lot of questions on the disasters from Harvey (Houston) and Irma (Florida) will need to be carefully examined and answered (see: They warned us, but few listened). While this will be looked at for decades to come it seems the most demonised source of carbon free power has again twice in a few weeks proved its resilience in not only withstanding natural events but also providing power either during or post event allowing a quicker start into recovery efforts (think mains power available for pumps, treatment plants, hospitals and emergency shelters from get go).
Time for a rethink!
