Emergency MELTDOWN Generators Shutdown: It's TOO DANG HOT at the Nuclear Plant

Island Minnesota Nuclear Plant had to shutdown emergency diesel
generators because the outside air temperature was just too dang hot.

So what exactly is too dang hot? According to today's NRC event report
Prairie Island Nuclear has to shut down its D1 and D2 generators when
the outside air temperature get above 97 degrees F.

So on the
hottest days of the year when the electrical grid is at its most
strained and the chances of having a Station Blackout (SBO) are highest,
the emergency backup generators which help keep the nuclear core from
going Fukushima during a SBO have to be shutdown? That just sounds
stupid doesn't it?
