But inside, guards are on heightened alert following the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

"Security is a bit heightened in light of the current situation. But there's no formal guidance or recommendation from the federal government to nuclear power plants," says Entergy spokesperson Jerry Nappi.

He says it's important that they know what's going on.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said that people should feel no less safe than before Bin Laden's death.

Indian Point was recently in the spotlight amid a near meltdown at a nuclear power plant following the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
