NRC to outline findings at NC's Harris nuke plant

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors will publicly share what they discovered when they inspected early signs of corrosion and cracking inside a reactor vessel's covering at a North Carolina nuclear plant.

Duke Energy Corp. began powering up the Shearon Harris plant Friday. The discovery of a quarter-inch trouble spot led the company to shut down the plant for more than three weeks.

The plant is located about 20 miles south of Raleigh.

Duke Energy and the NRC say there was no evidence of radiation leakage. The NRC inspectors will hold their hearing Thursday.
