True. They should have put those generators 60-70 feet above sea level, at least.
Perhaps an extreme idea, but I believe nuclear plants should actually be built on platform rigs in the ocean. That way, when all else fails, just activate a special lever and the entire facility falls to the ocean floor. IMHO, this would eliminate the possibility of airborn fallout.
