A major radiation release in the area would be catastrophic to the entire NYC Tri-state region.
This is why public safety officials recently conducted preparedness exercises at the Indian Point Energy Center. During their exercises, people near the site saw simulated attack scenarios that were intended to be as realistic as possible.
Indian Point Energy Center houses two operating nuclear power plants, unit 2 and unit 3, which generate approximately 2,000 megawatts of electricity and supply about 25 percent of power used annually by homes, business and public facilities in New York City and Westchester County. How prepared are we in the event of a serious accident?
