26. About a 0.05% as big.
give or take some. Local ground motion is really whats important, and those seismographs are all plate type, as I recall. So it will take a while to gather the date.

     - I won't debate that because I think both are bad. I don't care  gateley   Aug-23-11 02:45 PM   #9 
  - Is anyone next to the plant experiencing a loss?  RUMMYisFROSTED   Aug-23-11 02:28 PM   #2 
  - Generally, nuclear power plants have their own, dedicated lines  MineralMan   Aug-23-11 02:39 PM   #6 
     - Except, of course, the people who get power from the plant.  FBaggins   Aug-23-11 02:51 PM   #14 
     - This isn't about the power coming from the plant. That stopped  MineralMan   Aug-23-11 03:11 PM   #22 
     - Well, Kind of,  Throckmorton   Aug-23-11 03:24 PM   #25

  - Heh heh...  Fred Engels   Aug-23-11 02:47 PM   #11 
     - If you were trying to be facetious or funny, you failed.  MineralMan   Aug-23-11 02:52 PM   #15 
        - Apparently I did. I assumed DUers would know that only about 3 people died there.  Fred Engels   Aug-23-11 07:50 PM   #27 
  - I think those concerns are premature. There has been NO severe damage to...  Poll_Blind   Aug-23-11 02:43 PM   #8 
  - Whew...thanks. I was afraid the thing would kill millions like three mile island did  Fred Engels   Aug-23-11 02:48 PM   #12 
  - Uh... you know the one in Japan hasn't killed anyone, right?  TheWraith   Aug-23-11 03:12 PM   #23

  - Dominion Speaks,  Throckmorton   Aug-23-11 02:50 PM   #13 
  - U.S. nuclear power stations, including Dominions four stations, were built to seismic standards for  FBaggins   Aug-23-11 02:55 PM   #17 
     - And these plants were only built to sustain a 6.0  originalpckelly   Aug-23-11 02:57 PM   #18 
     - There's a great deal of misunderstanding of what that means.  FBaggins   Aug-23-11 03:00 PM   #19 
        - I completely agree with you.  originalpckelly   Aug-23-11 03:02 PM   #20 
     - Actually, Dominion owns 7 operating stations  Throckmorton   Aug-23-11 03:08 PM   #21 
  - Just like Fukushima, only they weren't just inundated with a shitload of water.  originalpckelly   Aug-23-11 02:53 PM   #16 
     - Also, this quake was a whole lot smaller than the Fukushima one.  MineralMan   Aug-23-11 03:13 PM   #24 
        - About a 0.05% as big.  Throckmorton   Aug-23-11 03:27 PM   #26
