Emergency declared at nuclear power plant

Do you feel me now With a taste of your lips I’m on a ride You’re toxic - Britney Spears

All the indications are that it was an instrumentation problem" that did not threaten public health, said David Lochbaum, director of nuclear safety for the Union of Concerned Scientists, which advocates safety in the nuclear industry.

State and federal regulators said no radioactivity was released during the emergency. And the reactor, one of two at the site, remained stable, they said.

After ordering an investigation of a rare emergency Monday at Exelon's LaSalle County nuclear plant, federal regulators said they would inspect all Illinois nuclear power plants because of the company's recent disclosures about radioactive leaks.

Exelon Nuclear declared the first "site-area emergency" in the nation since 1991 at LaSalle County Generating Station, about 75 miles southwest of Chicago.
