The public will have a chance to get another update on the status of the troubled Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant at a meeting in Blair next month.

But the Nuclear Regulatory Commission decided to reschedule Tuesday's meeting with Omaha Public Power District officials in Maryland because of a major storm forecast to hit the east coast.

The public meeting will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on November 15th at Dana College's Gardner-Hawks Center in Blair. After officials discuss the efforts to restart the plant, there will be time for questions.

Fort Calhoun sits 20 miles north of Omaha. It was initially shut down for refueling maintenance in April 2011, but flooding along the Missouri River and a series of safety violations forced it to stay closed.
