 Oh,it's unprecedented1. Three nuclear facilities in two states threatened by fire and water ,a massive wind-driven wildfire just miles from the Los Alamos lab in New Mexico, and floodwaters creeping up on two nuclear stations in Nebraska.

 
Now, my next guest actually describes it as Fukushima in slow motion.
 
But, first, CNN meteorologist Rob Marciano is giving us a lay of the land and kind of giving us the visual of where these are and how close everything is.
 
And, luckily, we are looking at super slow motion at this point.
 
Good, good.
 
MARCIANO: Here we go. Omaha, Nebraska, we've got two nuclear power stations , one to the south, one to the north.
 
The one to the north is the one we're most concerned about. That's been pretty much idle in the past several months. That was by design before even the flooding started. And now since the flood has come, they decided2 to keep it idle.
 
But, nonetheless, they are trying to protect it. They've done it with some aqua dams, aqua berms to do that. They had one of those failed. That's when all the scare started to come to play here.
 
But as of now, we are OK, but the problem is, you know, we've got water is not going away any time soon. We're pretty cresting3 right now, OK? You see, the forecast keeps it pretty much flat line at least the next week and maybe more.
 
So, it's not going down, but not necessarily going up any more. But just the pressure alone is going to cause this battle to be ongoing4 and any more failures in any of these protective measures then we have the scare coming back.
 
All right. Let's talk about what is going on as far as the fires are concerned. Extreme and critical fire danger out the west and we've got smoke that's a problem across parts of New Mexico.
 
Here is what's going on at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The fire itself is to the south and west, about 60,000 acres have burned.
 
Let's kind of describe what happens at the lab itself. We've got several,you know, it's huge, like 40,000 , or 40 square miles here. This is a dump right here. This is and these are hazardous5 dumps, OK?
 
This one is underground. So, technically6, they are not too concerned about this. But these out here are not necessarily aren't underground. They are the most,they are the furthest away.
 
But if the fire creeps up on the lab and gets to those sites,that is the way I understand it, Kyra, those are the problem areas. And so, so they are trying to keep the fire away from the dump sites that are on the eastern edge of the lab. The fire right now is on the southwestern edge of the lab.
