Unprecedented number of domestic no-fly zones quietly declared by FAA

Now perhaps I am mistaken here, I am not an aviation expert, but it appears to me looking at the Federal Aviation Administration's own records, something unprecedented is happening. There isn't a peep about it in the mainstream media.

In 2009 and 2010, the FAA declared five no-fly zones in US national airspace. This year, and mostly in the last few weeks, they have declared over FIFTY!

The short answer: The FAA & NRC are regulatory agencies and these agencies have way too much power.

I can give you the government explaination; these are temporary NOTAMS over active federal disasters (FEMA declared disaster areas). Wildfires, Tornadoes, and Flooding.

What do these recent NOTAMS do to keep people safe? I haven't a clue. Flooding is on the ground, planes in the air. Tornadoes and t-storms, planes already in the air increase altitude.

The NRC addresses the NOTAMS as well as the Army Corps of Engineers in some articles (links below) dealing with the flooding and levee building (and breeching) affecting two Nuclear Power Plants, a level one response, notitication of flooding.

Some recent links to articles adressing no fly zones over the two flooded power plants(still not valid reason for a no-fly zone):

Links w/my comments swiped off my site:
http://www.nrc.gov/info-finder/region-state/nebraska.html and http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/fact-sheets/fs-incident-response.html Notice of an unusual event is a level I event (lowest level), with no release of radioactive material requiring offsite response or monitoring. Flooding is expected to produce a Level I event & response; and in early May, the NRC and other agencies discussed this before breaching levees.
