We're following up on how the today's
5.9 5.8 (see 3:50 update below) magnitude earthquake might have affected infrastructure and energy operations, but right off the bat, you can breathe a sigh of relief, per the governor's office:
Currently, there have been no reports of damage to buildings, bridges, roads, power grids, the Indian Point nuclear power plant, or other infrastructure.
Indian Point's reactor #3, you may recall, was recently graded to be the most vulnerable domestic reactor in terms of earthquakes, according to Homeland Security Newswire:
The chance of core damage from a quake at Indian Point 3 is estimated at 1 in 10,000 each year. Under NRC guidelines, this rating is very close to requiring “immediate concern regarding adequate protection” of the public. The two reactors at Indian Point generate up to one-third of the electricity for Manhattan. The second reactor, Indian Point 2, does not rate as risky, with an annual chance of 1 in 30,303.
