ACCIDENT AT THREE MILE ISLAND WAS ON THIS DATE IN 1979

ThreeMileIsland 

America’s worst commercial nuclear accident occurred inside the Unit Two reactor at 
the Three Mile Island plant near Middletown, Pa. It was the most significant accident
in the history of Americas commercial nuclear power generating industry. A cooling system malfunction caused the release of a significant amount of radioactivity when 
a partial core meltdown occurred. No deaths or injuries to plant workers or members
of the community in the area were reported.
