S.C. Nuke Accident This week ☢

16 07 2019

RSOE Report | MAP

” a lid blew off the drum, dispersing some contents from the barrel and leading to the fire. The drum contained contaminated mop heads, filters, rags and laboratory waste that smoldered, before the paper in the drum ignited, the report shows. Several ounces of uranium 235, a radioactive heavy metal, were in the container . . . “

“About 2 in the morning, (plant personnel) heard a loud noise and discovered the lid from the drum had blown off and smoke was issuing from the drum”

The NRC will bother to look into it “later this month” sometime. If they get around to it.
