Prairie Island nuclear reactor worries tribe

The Prairie Island Indian community says the failure of two backup generators at the Prairie Island nuclear plant is “very troubling,” the Rochester Post Bulletin reports. Xcel Energy shut down one of its two reactors at the plant near Red Wing on Tuesday. Xcel assured no radiation was released.

Xcel Energy also shut down a nuclear reactor at its Monticello plant this week because of a water or steam leak.
