Rocky Flats remembered on anniversary of Japan disaster
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. -- Kristen Iversen used to live near Rocky Flats, and then she worked for the former nuclear weapons production facility. Now she's writing about it. Her book is coming out on the one-year anniversary of the Japan earthquake and nuclear power station reactor accident. "There are many similarities, with respect to what's happened with nuclear weapons sites around the United States, particularly Rocky Flats," Iversen says.
