    The owner of the Indian Point nuclear power plant says the facility is not susceptible to the kind of earthquake and tsunami that rocked Japan.

    Entergy's vice president, John McCann, told Westchester County legislators on Monday that the earthquake in Japan was much more powerful than any recorded in the region of Indian Point.

    McCann said he expected changes to be made in response to the events in Japan, but he didn't say what they would be.

    Entergy on Monday took out a one-page ad in The New York Times reassuring the public that the facility is designed to withstand the strongest earthquake anticipated in the area.

    The plant is located in Buchanan, N.Y., 35 miles north of New York City.
