Homeowners near Oyster Creek not worried following events in Japan

LACEY TOWNSHIP - Homeowners that live near the Oyster Creek nuclear facility say they aren't worried, even following the recent sequence of events in Japan.

In Japan, scientists are working to limit the fallout of the several damaged nuclear power plants. Homeowners in Lacey Township near the Oyster Creek nuclear facility say they are not concerned about their safety.

People in the area seem to be more concerned about when the plant closes in 2019, taking hundreds of jobs with it. Oyster Creek shares similar construction with the plants in Japan, but nuclear energy lobbyists say it's more than enough to protect against New Jersey's low risk for earthquakes.
