Paul,

You may want to relay to various lists that two nuclear reactors at Turkey
Point (that's South of Miami) have been shut down. Reason given is
precautionary measures.
AP reported that there were fighter jets overhead, but that is NOT
confirmed.
At this time FPL reports that av. 4 million customers are affected.
All schools are dismissed at this time. Expected time of restoration is up
to 10 hours.
