After being labeled one of the worst-performing nuclear power plants in the country, a southwest Michigan plant is taking steps Monday morning to better prepare people in case of an emergency.
The Palisades nuclear plant is in Covert, Van Buren County. The Federal Emergency Management drills will be held at emergency operating centers in Van Buren and Berrien counties Monday.
Monday morning's drill was scheduled to start at 8 a.m. and another is planned for Tuesday.
The plant has shut down several times in the last few months due to leaks and other safety-related issues. Since then, it's been working to shed the bad rating from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
