Occurred in 2045, this was a catastrophic nuclear power plant meltdown at a facility located outside Dayton, Ohio. The sudden release of radioactive material coupled with the weather conditions of the day led to massive death, evacuation of a 100 mile radius, and endangered almost everyone in the entire state of Ohio.
Nuclear power has been deemed unsafe following this disaster. There has been public demand to abandon nuclear power and dismantle other such sites across the country. However, given the extraordinary price of fossil-fuel based energies, the country has little choice but to continue to rely on the aging grid.
The Pro-CCD left-wing politicians have used this as outcome as evidence the country should annex to the CCD.
