Federal report backgrounds Nuclear One accident

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has posted an initial report on the accident Sunday at Arkansas Nuclear One that killed one worker and injured others. Machinery moving a 500-ton generator part failed.

This caused a loss of power and a 3-minute, 50-second delay before emergency power could resume operations including heat removal. The report says the cause of the failure and the extent of the damage still isn't known.
