Severe thunderstorms, high winds and tornadoes across the Southeast/Gulf region in April 2011 forced the shutdown of several nuclear plant facilities.

Severe thunderstorms, high winds and tornadoes across the Southeast/Gulf region in April 2011 forced the shutdown of the Browns Ferry nuclear power plant (3,388-MW), the Widows Creek coal plant (1,604 MW) and numerous transmission lines in North Alabama and surrounding areas. The storm destroyed significant infrastructure, causing widespread power demand losses, and more than 600,000 Tennessee Valley Authority customers went without power in the region.
