A unit at Indian Point nuclear plant in Buchanan, New York state, was shut down following a transformer failure on Saturday, but the plant was stable and there was no danger to the public or employees, the company that operates the facility said. Several emergency calls reported a loud noise at the plant, which is located about 40 miles (65 km) north of New York City, a New York State police spokesman said. Unit 3 at the plant was shut down following the transformer failure, Entergy Corp, the company that operates the facility, said in a message on Twitter. “No threat to public safety at any time,” the company said on Twitter.
