Hanford NR emergency
Tunnel at plutonium uranium extraction plant collapses in Hanford
Quote
Hundreds of workers were in "take cover" position after a tunnel in a plutonium uranium extraction (PUREX) plant collapsed at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation early Tuesday morning.

The AP reports no workers were in the tunnel at the time of collapse. Workers at the site have now been evacuated. Workers farther away were told to remain indoors.

A manager sent a message to all personnel telling them to "secure ventilation in your building" and "refrain from eating or drinking."

The tunnel was full of highly contaminated materials such as hot radioactive trains that transport fuel rods. It connects to a PUREX (plutonium uranium extraction) building.

During the cleanup of the site after it shut down many of its reactors in the ?80's?, it was reported that there was enough plutonium dust in the old ventilation ducts around the site to make a couple of bombs with.

I used to live on a boat in the port of Tacoma and we would have contests who could catch the more disturbing mutant bottom fish from under the boat. Lots of flounder with messed up eyes. None with three though.

I almost took a job with Bechtel working at Hanford about 10 years ago.

I like the set up they have on emergency muster points.

"All personnel report to their lunch rooms.
....
Refrain from eating or drinking."

Sounds like someone missed this in the document review process.  That, or they are sadistic.
