Turkey Point

Florida Power & Light has been fined $140,000 for safety violations at its Turkey Point nuclear plant in Homestead, the Sun Sentinel reported. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said the violations were of “low to moderate safety significance” that could invite more inspections. The plant, which was first commissioned in 1972, is about 25 miles south of Miami. [Sun Sentinel]
