NRC Issues Updated SRP Section for Missiles Generated by Extreme Winds

The NRC has issued Revision 4 of Section 3.5.1.4, “Missiles Generated by Extreme Winds,” to the Standard Review Plan (NUREG-0800).  The staff published draft revisions in August 2013, primarily to update the guidance to reflect new guidance for hurricane winds in Regulatory Guide 1.221, “Design-Basis Hurricane and Hurricane Missiles for Nuclear Power Plants.”  The final version is identical to the proposed section.  Section 3.5.1.4 contains a description of changes between Revision 3 and Revision 4.
