US nuclear site's collapsed tunnel may have gone unnoticed

That's because the area around the Hanford Nuclear Reservation's waste-filled tunnels is not observed every day by workers who patrol the site's sprawling grounds.

U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry says a hole that developed in the top of a nuclear waste storage tunnel in Washington state has been filled.

Authorities have detected no signs that radiation emanated from the collapsed tunnel, and the hole was filled with 53 truckloads of dirt delivered by workers wearing protective gear, Perry said.

Snap Plunges on First Earnings Report as Public Company
In its first post-IPO report in 2012, Facebook also disappointed investors when its daily user base grew by only 32 percent. After the results , Snap shares fell immediately, trading almost $18.19 which is the lowest since it went public.

The cause of the tunnel's partial roof cave-in is under investigation, said Mark Heeter, a spokesman for the Energy Department. The order, which the state said legally requires the DOE to take action, also insisted that the federal government develop corrective actions to ensure the tunnels are structurally safe going.

The reactors at Hanford, established in 1943, produced plutonium for the USA defense program for over 40 years, including the plutonium that was in the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, in 1945.

A much larger nearby tunnel built in 1964 has 28 railroad cars with radioactive waste.

The Yakama Nation, a group of Northwest tribes, also is calling for quicker cleanup of the tunnels.

The cleanup of Hanford's waste is expected to last until 2060 and cost an additional $100 billion over the $19 billion already spent.

The most risky waste at Hanford is 56 million gallons stored in 177 underground tanks, some of which have leaked. Construction of a $17 billion glassification factory has stopped because of design and safety issues.
