It’s been 24 hours and not much has changed. The uranium hexachloride (still unconfirmed that that is what it is but most sources say it is) is still there and they still have the area blocked off and only hazmat teams can get in. They have not expanded the area any and the news stations, radio and news papers are all still giving conflicting information. So yeah, basically we still have no freaking idea what is going on.
There is speculation that even though the fire department and police are down playing it and saying there is no leak, that there is in fact a leak and we are just not being told about it. Why else would there be higher then normal (and higher then acceptable) radiation levels.
It’s not quite as scary since no one around here seems to be feeling any ill effects or anything but we really don’t know anything about it and no one is giving answers so it still is a bit of an uneasy feeling.
Hopefully it will all be okay and no real danger.
