The NRC has confirmed a finding that an electrical fire last June at the Fort Calhoun Station was a serious safety risk.
Tuesday’s report follows a preliminary finding issued last month by the Commission. The June 7, 2011 fire caused an alert to be issued at the nuclear plant. It was closed at the time due to Missouri River flooding.
NRC Region 4 spokeswoman Lara Uselding says the finding is a so-called “red” threat, meaning it’s a high safety significant issue.
A new Walmart Supercenter in north Omaha is expected to create 275 jobs when it opens next year.
Walmart and city officials announced Monday that the Supercenter will be built at 50th and Ames Streets. Construction is scheduled to begin later this year. Mayor Jim Suttle says the project is important to north Omaha’s quality of life, as it'll provide a place for residents to buy household items, fresh fruit and vegetables, and other goods.
Suttle says he’s encouraged by the growth along the Ames corridor in the past year from 30th to 72nd Streets.
A new study shows Omaha’s Midtown Crossing generated more than $26 million dollars in tax revenue for the city and state over the past five years, with an overall economic impact of $729 million during that time.
