Three Mile Island
The Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station is approximately 10 miles SSE of Harrisburg Pennsylvania, United States. Most commonly it is reported to be in Middletown (since Middletown is the mailing address), but it is actually in Londonderry Township on the beautiful Susquehanna River.
