The operators of the North Anna Nuclear plant in Virginia will meet with federal regulators this week to give the latest update on recovery after last month's earthquake.

Representatives of Dominion Virginia Power are due at the headquarters of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission in Rockville, Md. Thursday. They'll be giving the latest analysis of shaking at the North Anna nuclear site, located about 12 miles from the epicenter of the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that struck August 23.

The reactors shut down safely after the quake, but the NRC says ongoing analysis indicates the earthquake may have subjected the plant to more ground movement than specified in designs.

Dominion officials are also expected to talk about the next steps in determining when the plant will be able to restart.
