Tunnel With Nuclear Waste Collapses In Washington State


SPOKANE, Wash. – A portion of a storage tunnel that contains rail cars full of radioactive waste collapsed Tuesday morning, forcing an emergency declaration at the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in southeastern Washington state. Officials detected no release of radiation and no workers were injured, said Randy Bradbury, a spokesman for the Washington state Department of Ecology. There were no workers inside the tunnel when it collapsed. But nearby Hanford workers were evacuated and others who were farther away were told to remain indoors, the U.S. Department of Energy said. The accident occurred at a facility known as PUREX, located in the middle of the sprawling Hanford site, which is half the size of Rhode Island, Bradbury said. Hanford is located near Richland, about 200 miles southeast of Seattle. The closed PUREX plant was part of the nation’s nuclear weapons production complex. Hanford for decades made plutonium for nuclear weapons and is now the largest depository of radioactive defence waste that must be cleaned. It contains about 56 million gallons of radioactive waste, most of it in 177 underground tanks. Source>>>>>>>

Dutch Giving $10,000 Shopping Spree To Muslims!

Some Dutch residents are outraged after finding out that a few cities have been offering as much as €10,000 to refugees to buy furniture and other necessities, local media reported. Asylum seekers who get allocated to certain towns in the Netherlands may get as much as €10,000 to buy furniture for their homes, according to research carried out by the daily Brabants Dagblad (BD). Talking to the local authorities, Brabants Dagblad found the sum of money varies in different municipalities. While Oisterwijk, South Netherlands offers as much as €10,602 for a family with two children, in other cities, such as Bernheze, Schijndel Veghel and Sint-Michielsgestel the same family may receive around €3,500. Boekel offers the smallest amount of €2,200. BD also said that some cities require refugees to pay the sum back, while others, such as the most generous Oisterwijk consider the money “a gift."
