NJ Residents Apparently Fear of Nuclear Accident Less Than NY Neighbors

The New York Times reports in today's edition that New Jersey residents seem to fear nuclear accident less than people in neighboring states like New York and Connecticut. The article points out that New Jersey has four nuclear reactors: one in Forked River, south of Toms River, and three in Lower Alloways Creek Township, southeast of Wilmington, DE.

How many New Jersey residents even know where Lower Alloways Creek Township is? It's hard to find on Mapquest-- you have to look for a place name within it, like Hancock's Bridge.

While we are not saying that New Jerseyans should fear a nuclear accident in this state, it's probably a good idea to take this opportunity to educate ourselves as to the location of these power plants in case an accident ever did take place.
