Plymouth: Stepped up security at Pilgrim plant following explosions in Boston

The Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth has increased security after two bombs exploded in Boston on Monday, killing at least two people and injuring dozens. The Pilgrim Plant heightened security checks of vehicles, materials and individuals entering the plant.

Pilgrim was already shut down for refueling when the explosions occurred.

Eliot Brenner, a spokesman for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, said federal officials have not ordered changes in security at other U.S. nuclear reactors in the wake of the Boston explosions.
