Hanford Tank Farm evacuated for suspected vapors

Six workers, four expressing symptoms, underwent precautionary medical evaluations after reporting odors at a Hanford tank farm Wednesday morning.

All have been released back to work.

Three others also reported odors but declined medical evaluation.

The odors were reported outside the AX tank farm just after 9 o'clock this morning.

Workers were told to stay upwind and away from a dressing facility outside the tank farm that does not require use of a supplied-air respirator.
