BREAKING: Employees Told To Take Cover at Washington Nuclear Waste Treatment Plant


This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.

UPDATE 1

Via KHQ:

 A Hanford Vit Plant media relations contact says he can confirm a "Take Cover" alert went out to employees Friday morning and that is all the information they have available for employees at this time.

UPDATE 2

VIA KPER

A media relations contact with the Hanford Vit Plant says a take cover alert went out to employees this morning just before 6 a.m Pacific Time.

The Department of Energy say they issued the take cover as a precaution after steam was observed coming from PUREX Tunnel 2 during tunnel filling operations.

At this time, there is no indication of a release of hazardous material.

The DOE says employees are directed to stay indoors in the 200 East Area until further instructions.
