Officials at _Three Mile Island_ 
(http://www.exeloncorp.com/powerplants/threemileisland/Pages/profile.aspx)   said they are monitoring Susquehanna 
River levels and flow rates in the  wake of impending _flooding_ 
(http://topics.pennlive.com/tag/flooding/index.html)  caused  by the remnants of Tropical 
Storm Lee. At this time, conditions are well  below the margin of anything 
that would warrant emergency action at the nuclear  plant, said April Schilpp, 
a spokeswoman for plant owner Exelon  Nuclear.

She said TMI had not reached a flood action level for safety, buildings or  

“Even the highest forecast we are receiving is well below  anything that 
would require us to take any kind action,” Schilpp said.  

She said the company was also taking precautions for other parts of the  
property not related to the operation of the plant.

Three Mile Island, located about 10 miles south of  Harrisburg in 
Londonderry Twp., is built on an island in the Susquehanna  River.

Dear  colleagues

I awoke this morning to news that half-million people living  in Susquehanna
valley are being evacuated due to flooding.  Any word  on what this means 
Susquehanna, TMI and Peach Bottom NPTs?  TMI  seems particularly vulnerable
considering it's on an island in the middle  of the river, not to mention 
previous notoriety.
