Hanford Nuke Waste Site is Having an Accident Right NOW. Tunnel Collapse.

9 05 2017

 Washington PostTunnel appears to collapses at Hanford nuclear waste site in Washington state

You can see by the typo the nuke-puke WaPo editor fooling with the phasing and adding “APPEARS TO” in the headline. They take their readers for morons.

“Hundreds of workers at the Hanford nuclear waste site in Washington state have been ordered to “take cover” after a portion of a tunnel appeared to collapse.

The U.S. Department of Energy said it has activated its emergency operations protocol in Hanford…”

If WaPo fixes up that headline the archive of the original flub is HERE.

WE WILL UPDATE THIS POST AS INFO COMES IN – F.C.

“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.”

WORKER VIDEO from K5NBC.

GOV. website: HANFORD EMERGENCY INFORMATION

They claim right away there’s NO contamination but they USE A ROBOT to look around(!)

11:13 AM

Crews are currently surveying the area near the PUREX tunnels for contamination. Crews are using hand surveying techniques in the outer areas around the PUREX facility. At and near the area of subsidence crews have deployed a TALON, which is a remote operated surveying device that is capable of radiological and industrial hygiene monitoring as well as capturing video footage. The TALON device allows crews to safely survey potential areas of contamination from a distance of up to ½ mile.”

Thousands of Hanford workers take cover after cave-in of tunnel with radioactive waste
http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/environment/hanford-declares-alert-emergency-evacuates-workers-because-of-problems-with-contaminated-tunnels/

“Railcars, filled with radioactive waste, are buried in the wood and concrete tunnels, which are covered by about 8 feet of soil.”

That sounds like a scientific safe way to handle nuke waste for eons.

I came to your blog after a google search led me to a 2012 post, “Did Nixon kill J. Edgar Hoover?” It makes what happened to Mr. Comey seem a bit less extreme. Anyway, congrats on still publishing five years later.

That gets traffic! The Pepsi info is very exclusive … (other guy’s blog who wrote about it)…

Looks like officials knew about the accident 19 hours before actually reporting the incident to the public.
“No-Fly Zone Issued for HANFORD Nuclear Site, Collapse Is Five Times Larger Than First Estimated” on ebuTuoY.

I’ve read on enenews.com that the hole is really 400 square feet and that multiple states are enacting emergency measures. I saw that the wind was blowing to the south east at Hanford yesterday. On a similar note, we may have growing concerns for a huge radiation release from Fukushima.

yeah … I have the ENE-News headlines on the lower part of the right sidebar ….
My feeling is the many more sections of the tunnel will collapse in like fashion as the flimsy wood timbers rot at the same rate. As bigger sections go bigger releases of rads to the outside air.
Kevin Blanch knows about the lying on rad amount….

I’m sure the Wigner Effect is taking a toll on the steel as well.

yeah …. I can just see more and more sections caving in ….

Santa Monica Observer – Possible Radiation Release at Hanford Nuclear Reactor in Eastern Washington State
http://www.smobserved.com/story/2017/05/08/news/possible-radiation-release-at-hanford-nuclear-reactor-in-eastern-washington-state/2888.html

“But Edwin Lyman, a senior scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said there is still cause for concern. “It appears that this is a potentially serious event,” he said. “Collapse of the earth covering the tunnels could lead to a considerable radiological release.”

Not about to miss a step, the NRC has a fifty website with up-to-the-minute reports on the STATUS of COMPLEX MATERIALS SITES.
So we look there [xls file] and see it’s data was last updated in 2014(!)

NRC boots you to DoE to look for nuke waste reports.
