Hope for the best, prepare for a nuclear emergency. Hanford is littered with 70 years of nuclear waste, including waste “storage” areas that are known to leak or have leaked in the past.

The Hanford website:

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Richland Operations Office activated the Hanford Emergency Operations Center at 8:26 a.m., after an alert was declared at the 200 East Area. There are concerns about subsidence in the soil covering railroad tunnels near a former chemical processing facility. The tunnels contain contaminated materials.
Actions taken to protect site employees include:
Facility personnel have been evacuated
As a precaution, workers in potentially affected areas of the Hanford Site have gone indoors
Access to the 200 East Area of the Hanford Site, which is located in the center of the Hanford Site, has been restricted to protect employees
The public can request information regarding the event by calling[no phone numbers allowed]. The media may call[no phone numbers allowed].
