Idaho Barrel Rupture
#1
Emergency Operations activation at Idaho nuclear plant caused by rupture of barrel with radioactive sludge

http://www.khq.com/story/37942072/emerge...tern-idaho

Excerpt:

"The U.S. Department of Energy said Thursday that the 55-gallon (208-liter) barrel ruptured late Wednesday at the 890-square-mile (2,305-square-kilometer) site that includes the Idaho National Laboratory.
 
Officials say crews responded to a containment structure at the Idaho Cleanup Project's Radioactive Waste Management Complex.
 
Officials say no one was injured and there's no threat to the public. [remember that].
 
Experts say more barrels might contain a rupture-inducing mix of radioactive and other materials.
 
The barrels are from nuclear weapons production at the Rocky Flats Plant near Denver, Colorado."

This from Marco Kaltofen (Twitter) contradicts number of barrels reportedly ruptured. 1 or 3?
