Area residents are invited to attend an informational session on living near a nuclear power plant, titled “Can the South Shore survive a nuclear crisis?’’ on Sept. 27 from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. at Marshfield’s Ventress Library. Residents will have an opportunity to ask questions of the leader of the nonprofit organization, Pilgrim Watch, a nuclear watchdog group based in Duxbury that opposes extending the license of the Pilgrim nuclear plant in Plymouth. Event organizer Anna Baker of Marshfield urged area residents to “avoid becoming victims’’ of a nuclear disaster such as the one that befell the residents of Fukushima Prefecture in Japan. “In Massachusetts, we do have hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and power outages,’’ Baker said by e-mail. “South Shore residents are at risk and there are only a handful of citizens trying to ensure the plant’s safety.’’ - Robert Knox
