I am not keeping up with it. There may be a problem at one of the plants but I have not had time today to inquire. (The ACRS briefing went well.)

Hi Ben,

Are you all getting any news on the situation at the plant in Japan?

I imagine this will bring a lot more importance to GI-199, especially in light of a claim made by an NRC speaker at the RIC claiming that Japanese plants are more seismically robust than US plants.
