An Ohio nuclear plant along Lake Erie is operating again after a nearly two-week shutdown.

The Davis-Besse plant east of Toledo had been shut down since Sept. 10 after rainwater entered its turbine building.

Akron-based FirstEnergy Corp. says it restarted the plant's reactor Thursday after repairing the plant's electrical controls.

A company spokeswoman says the rainwater prompted its turbine generator to automatically shut down.

The company found that a roof vent in the building hadn't fully closed and that the water damaged electrical controls.
