Nuclear reactors and their spent-fuel pools are targets for terrorists piloting hijacked planes. Reactors may be situated downstream from dams that, should they ever burst, could unleash biblical floods. Some reactors are located close to earthquake faults or shorelines exposed to tsunamis or hurricane storm surges. Any one of these threats could produce the ultimate danger scenario like the ones that emerges at Three Mile Island and Fukushima – a catastrophic coolant failure, the overheating and melting of the radioactive fuel rods, and the deadly release of radioactive material.
