FPL shut one reactor at Florida Turkey Point ahead of Irma

Sept 10 (Reuters) - Florida Power & Light (FPL) said it had shut one reactor at Turkey Point on Saturday but will leave the other unit at the nuclear plant in South Florida operating after Hurricane Irma’s forecast track shifted toward the west and away from the plant.

FPL also said it no longer plans to shut the two reactors at St Lucie plant located on a barrier island on the state’s east coast about 120 miles (193 km) north of Miami. (Reporting by Scott DiSavino; Editing by Elaine Hardcastle)
