California– The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is investigating a possible leak of radioactive steam. Apparently, a sensor detected the possible leak. The leak has forced a unit shutdown at the San Onofre nuclear generating station near San Diego. This is the same nuclear power plant that had an ammonia leak back in November. Southern California Edison released a statement, saying, “The potential leak poses no imminent danger to the public or plant workers.”

New York– A flaw in the design of the new World Trade Center could cost the building agency millions of dollars. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said the loading dock under One World trade center won’t be finished in time for tenants to move their equipments into the building. Five temporary building bays will now have to be placed into the 104-story tower adding millions to the cost of One World Trade Center.
