From ENENews: Alarm after 'unusually high' radiation levels at U.S. nuclear site — Gov't: "We've never seen a level like we are seeing... I can't tell you the amount" — Could be Plutonium — Employees "sequestered in place" — 'Unclear' how much radiation released — Unprecedented event:
"Reuters, Feb. 16, 2014 (emphasis added): Unusually high levels of radioactive particles were found at an underground nuclear waste site in New Mexico on Saturday in what a spokesman said looked like the first real alarm since the plant opened in 1999. [...] radioactive waste, such as plutonium used in defense research and nuclear weapon making, is dumped half a mile below ground [...] "But I believe it's safe to say we've never seen a level like we are seeing. We just don't know if it's a real event, but it looks like one," [Energy spokesman Roger Nelson] said. It was not yet clear what caused the air-monitoring system to indicate that radioactive particles were present at unsafe levels, Nelson said."
