If a nuclear meltdown on the same scale of Japan’s March 11, 2011, disaster at Fukushima Daiichi happened at Entergy’s Indian Point nuclear power plant, much of the Hudson Valley, New York City and surrounding areas could be affected, requiring evacuations far outside the 10-mile zone for which the Nuclear Regulatory Commission requires emergency plans. For Indian Point, even those inadequate evacuation plans have been called “unworkable” after months of study by safety experts.
