I have one question and one statement. Q – are they running any small scale “research reactors” at that entire facility complex? And my statement would be: I know there are ingredients for medium to large explosive and propulsion testing but are any of those nuclear – have they breached a nuclear storage facility or containment area? They’re sure acting like it!! And WHY a 7.1 quake centered nowhere near a known fault system capable of generating a quake that large? Either this is a horrible accident or hey did something REALLY STUPID to cause it!! I suspect the latter. There is an awfully strong language to keep even employees away got to be super critical serious!
