Nuclear power plant back in service after Hurricane Isaac

Entergy Nuclear (NYSE: ETR) on Sept. 5 said the Waterford 3 nuclear power plant is back at 100 percent power following a controlled shutdown for Hurricane Isaac. Operators connected the plant back to the electrical grid Sept. 3.

The plant, about 25 miles from New Orleans, was safely shut down before the full impact of Hurricane Isaac and received no storm-related damage. Entergy officials made the conservative decision to bring the plant offline in advance of Isaac's landfall.
