Preparing for the worst: nuclear drills get underway at Prairie Island

Posted:
WELCH, Minn. (KTTC) -

Nuclear disaster on the shores of the Mississippi. It's a scenario no one wants to see, but one that responders have to train for just in case.

Tuesday, dozens of agencies from Minnesota and Wisconsin will take part in a simulated nuclear incident at the Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant. The two day drill will test the capabilities of first responders and see how well the teams work together facing adversity. 

Residents near this area in Goodhue and Dakota counties should not be alarmed.
