Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen says there are 26 nuclear plants in the path of Hurricane Sandy, and the spent fuel pools in the plants don’t have backup pumps. The Oyster Creek (EXC) nuclear plant - one of the oldest in the U.S. and of the same design as Fukushima Unit 1 - is located near New Jersey’s shoreline in an area forecast to take a direct hit from the hurricane.
