COVERT TWP (AP) – The Palisades Nuclear Plant in southwestern Michigan has been shut down due to a loss of water in a cooling system.

The lowest of four emergency classification levels was declared.

The classification means plant workers were notified and were resolving the problem.

Officials say the shutdown poses no risk to the public and that no radioactive materials were released.

The plant is owned by New Orleans-based Entergy Corporation.
