A nuclear power plant that shut down over the weekend has resumed operations.
 
The single-unit Davis-Besse nuclear power plant in Ohio is expected to be back to full power Thursday after a steam leak on the non-nuclear side shut down the reactor on May 9, according to WLKY.com. The incident was deemed an unusual event with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, but it was contained within two hours after it was discovered.
 
FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co. (NYSE: FE) personnel is still investigating the cause of the leak.
