Turkey Point Reactors go dark

Apparently, the Turkey Point nuclear power plant does not use its own power to run the plant, reports are that the loss of external power to the plant caused Turkey Point to go down, which added to the cascading loss of power in Florida.  They may not regain power until well into the night.

These large outages are difficult to diagnose, it's not always easy to know which outage caused the next.  The Disney Web Cam is still online, but the Cocoa Beach Cam is off.  Old Walt knew his stuff... they are pretty self-sufficient there.
