. . . . only 20 miles?!?
Yep, that’s right. Forty-year old Millstone Nuclear Power Plant is only 20 miles across the Sound from Montauk.
One of Millstone’s active reactors was built around the same time as Fukushima Daiichi in Japan, the reactor that was damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, triggering Japan’s worst nuclear crisis. The United States government urged all Americans to stay at least 50 miles away from the Fukushima plant.
And Montauk’s only 20 miles from Millstone . . .
