BRIDGMAN, Mich. (AP) - Officials say a nuclear reactor in southwestern Michigan that was shut down after a rupture released steam is back in operation.

Cook Nuclear Plant spokesman Bill Schalk tells The Herald-Palladium (https://bit.ly/29GJy3O ) that the Unit 2 reactor was returned to power on Tuesday.

Indiana Michigan Power has said the steam was not radioactive but it damaged a wall at Unit 2 early on July 6 in Bridgman. There were no injuries. Inspectors from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission were investigating. Cook’s Unit 1 reactor wasn’t affected.
