The nuclear waste site known as the Hanford Site is now in a state of emergency following a tunnel collapse on the site. The tunnel contained railcars full of nuclear waste. Thankfully, no radiation was detected and the tunnel was empty of all workers. All workers were evacuated, but some who might have been exposed to radiation were told to stay indoors. On top of this, the airspace above the Hanford Site has been declared a no-fly zone. The site itself used to be a facility for producing nuclear weapons, but now handles nuclear waste. This disaster will definitely be a blow to America’s already failing nuclear industry, but likely will not effect our neighbors (Canada) and other countries worldwide (except Japan).
