NEW HILL – Duke Energy’s nuclear power plant just south of the Triangle has found its second flaw this year.

WRAL reports that the Shearon Harris plant was shut down Nov. 9 for refueling during which time an ultrasonic inspection found a microscopic crack in a nozzle.

A Duke Energy representative said the public is in no danger due to the flaw.

Shearon Harris is located 25 miles southeast of Chapel Hill.
