• NUCLEAR WASTE ALERT IN WASHINGTON STATE

    0

    LOS ANGELES: Heightened radioactivity levels were found outside a nuclear waste tank in the state of Washington in a new alert about a site used to make Cold War-era bombs. Governor Jay Inslee said there was no immediate public health threat, but urged federal authorities to accelerate action to deal with leaks at the Hanford site, which he sounded the alarm about four months ago. In February, Inslee said that at least six tanks containing radioactive waste were leaking, based on decreasing levels within them, but no elevated radioactivity levels were recorded outside of the containers themselves.
