In a release, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission said the quake had no effect on that site, its National Research Universal Reactor, or any other nuclear facility in the country. A release from Chalk River confirmed that a site walkdown showed no damage at the labs.
Unfortunately we will get this same response for any size of earthquake in any plant. A blind-eyed walkdown is not a good thing. We really need some velocity readings (PGV). The Chalk River site may amplify at the top of structures by 100 times. That's why I call it a Seismic Death Trap.
I don't have the energy to do anything but I will give it the gravest Jane Austen insult - Bad Form!
