In case you missed it on American media - and you probably did because it's not really a story they've paid much attention to - the air space over the nuclear plant north of Omaha is still closed:

Air Space over Nebraska Nuclear Plant Still Closed

Of course the no-fly-zone has fueled all sorts of speculations, but what stood out in the article for me was this little statement towards the end: "OPPD spokesman Jeff Hanson told Business Insider that the nuclear plant is in a "stable situation." He said the Missouri River is currently at 1005.6" above sea level, and that no radioactive fuel had yet been released or was expected to be released in the future.

"Asked about the FAA flight ban, Hanson it was due to high power lines and 'security reasons that we can't reveal.' He said the flight ban remains in effect."

What intrigues me here is that we have had no "threat level" warnings recently from the Reichsicherheithauptamnt.... er...pardon me, the Department of Heimatsicherung.... er, Department of Homeland Security (it's so hard to keep all those things straight any more), but clearly, the government is worried about something, or at least, wanting us to think it's worried about something.

Ok...I'll bite: to issue no-fly zones over a water-and-flood surrounded nuclear plant suggests that it suspects that someone - God forbid - might  try to do something against the plant. But who, and why? Well, there are the usual suspects: "terrorists" (against whom we've been at war, remember, for 10 years), but that story might not wash too well because the Muslim world is pretty preoccupied right now with its own internal affairs. So who else might the government be worried about, assuming, of course, that the "security reasons" that "can't be revealed" are legitimate and that the government is telling the truth (cough hack wheeze).

We can, I think, reasonably rule out that those reasons might be because the government would expect a "panic" in case of a Fukushima type event. Panic wouldn't happen; anger, possibly, but panic, no. This leaves one more possibility, assuming, again, that the threat is genuine, and that is that the government, or rather, its corrupt controlling elites, might be worried about a response to actions it (or rather, they) had undertaken previously. It is a small, minor, but nonetheless, tacit corroboration of the idea that we might be looking at a covert war, being waged behind the screen of perfect plausible deniability: mother nature herself.
