Widespread Power Outage Hits Florida

A problem with the electrical grid in Florida caused power outages to up to 3 million people Tuesday and a nuclear plant to automatically shut down, officials with the state's largest utility said.
Authorities said there were no safety concerns at the nuclear plant but did not specify the outage's cause.
A Florida Power & Light spokesman initially said the nuclear plant caused the outages to about a fifth of Florida's population. But the utility's nuclear spokesman, Dick Winn, later said grid problems caused both reactors at the Turkey Point plant south of Miami to shut down between 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.©ABC news
