BREAKING: Unit 3 of Indian Point Power Plant shut down … cause unknown

“At approximately 7:00 pm, Unit 3 at the Indian Point nuclear facility shut down. The cause is currently unknown, but I immediately directed the Department of Public Service to commence an investigation into another unexpected incident at Indian Point.
