Full details of the event are found at this NRC.gov nuclear power plant alert page, which states:
UNUSUAL EVENT DUE TO SITE CONDITIONS PREVENTING PLANT ACCESS
"A hazardous event has resulted in on site conditions sufficient to prohibit the plant staff from accessing the site via personal vehicles due to flooding of local roads by Tropical Storm Florence."
Notified DHS SWO, FEMA OPS, and DHS NICC. Notified FEMA NWC, NuclearSSA, and FEMA NRCC via email.
In other words, the Brunswick power facilities can no longer be accessed by workers and technicians even as they are running a "hot shutdown" which requires human oversight.
The Brunswick power plants, in other words, are running blind.
As Natural News previously reported, Hurricane Florence achieved a direct hit on the Brunswick power facilities, drenching the entire area with unprecedented rain and flooding.

And notice where Hurricane Florence made landfall:
The hurricane hovered over the Brunswick power plant for more than two days, drenching the area with rainfall:
Natural News was one of the few media outlets in the world to point out the risk of nuclear emergencies before Hurricane Forence made landfall. This article asks whether a Fukushima-like event could unfold in North America. The answer is yes, it can.
Now the NRC has declared an emergency at the Brunswick facility. Personnel are not able to access the plant, which is running a "hot shutdown" sequence. The facility is apparently running blind.
At risk is the entire Eastern seaboard of the United States, which would be rendered uninhabitable for 300 years if a nuclear fuel meltdown occurs.
No one in the fake news media seems to think this is important enough to cover. After all, they're too busy trying to blame Trump for somehow causing the hurricane itself.
The sheer stupidity -- and almost suicidal tendency -- of modern humans never ceases to amaze.

Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
