The plant is reportedly at a stage 4 level of emergency, though the Omaha Public Power District (OPPD), which owns and operates the plant, denies this.
"This terminology is not accurate, and is not how emergencies at nuclear power plants are classified," the OPPD says on a website created to counter rumors about the security of the Fort Calhoun plant.

No. From the Wapo link:

A small fire briefly knocked out the cooling system for used fuel at a nuclear power plant in Nebraska, but temperatures never exceeded safe levels and power was quickly restored, federal officials said Wednesday.

From your link..planes cannot fly over it because of flooding on the ground ?
That's a new one.

"The OPPD claims the FAA closed airspace over the plant because of the Missouri River flooding."
