NPP in Ukrane is on fire after attack.


Here is the google mapm link to the power plant. Looks like it has 6 reactors.
Here is an MSNBC video to get you caught up on the news: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZO2x2o-rHg

Can't find exact match of the building from the video that is on fire. Closest thing i can find is this angle: https://www.google.com/maps/@47.5138694,34.5943625,3a,60y,221.54h,91.12t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s5T_IedBxGUuT0mbm0luFJw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!5m1!1e4

It's good that everything worked out, at the moment there is no reason to worry. The Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station is the largest nuclear power plant in Europe and among the 10 largest in the world.

Again fights at Zaporizhzhia yesterday, including shelling and some damage. One reactor shut off automatically, the others run still.

Some days ago, the Russian army installed weapons at the nuclear power plant, supposedly to fire from them without being shelled.
