Residents remain divided over safety of Indian Point
One day after the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) reported that the Indian Point nuclear power plant did follow all safety procedures in 2010, residents say they are still divided about the plant and whether it should remain in Buchanan.
Both protesters and supporters attended the meeting held by the NRC in Cortlandt Manor last night to voice their opinions on the nuclear plant in their backyard.
People from more than 10 organizations calling for the shutdown of Indian Point were in attendance.
Many who oppose the plant say the recent nuclear crisis in Fukushima, Japan following a devastating earthquake and tsunami is enough cause for concern back at home.
