FILE - This Jan. 11, 2000, file photo shows the Wolf Creek Nuclear power plant near New Strawn, Kan., which went online in 1985. The Wolf Creek plant, the closest nuclear power plant to the tornado-ravaged city of Joplin, Mo., was singled out weeks before the deadly storm for being vulnerable to twisters. Inspections triggered by the Japan nuclear crisis found that some emergency equipment and storage sites at the plant in southeastern Kansas might not survive a tornado.
