Nuclear Power Plants on Alert Status

WASHINGTON (AP) - The government put the nation's nuclear power plants on a heightened state of alert late Friday because of information gained by the intelligence community, according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The intelligence did not specify that there is a threat directed against nuclear power plants or outline any plot, said NRC spokeswoman Beth Hayden.

But the NRC sent a special advisory to 103 nuclear power plants to be cautious.

``This advisory is telling them to be on the lookout and to report anything suspicious to the operations center,'' Hayden said.

Hayden noted that since Sept. 11 the nuclear power plants have already been directed to increase security patrols, augment security forces, install barricades and look for suspicious people trying to conduct surveillance on the plant.
