Carlsbad Residents Meeting on WIPP Radiation Release, Feb. 24, 2014 (emphasis added):

  • Question at 1:35:30 in: Whenever [CEMRC director] Russell Hardy was standing at [the WIPP site] pulling the filter, how many [millirem] was he exposed to roughly?
  • Roger Nelson, U.S. Department of Energy: When he was there [...] the large amounts of particulate that were in the puff as it went by were gone.

KFOR NewsChannel4, Feb. 24, 2014:

  • Kevin Ogle, KFOR anchor: It’s being called a radiation event, and you know what? It could be making its way here to Oklahoma. Officials say a radiation leak happened sometime between Feb. 11 and Feb. 16 at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant […] What they’re saying not totally reassuring. They’re saying we shouldn’t worry — yet.
  • Ed Doney, KFOR reporter: Yet is the key word, Kevin. […] Experts are hesitant to push the panic button right now. Could a radiation leak at an underground nuclear waste site in Southeast New Mexico reach Oklahoma?
  • Don Hancock, nuclear waste expert: It very much depends on the winds because plutonium and americium can travel a long way.
  • Dr. John Nail, Oklahoma City Univ. chemistry professor: Most people will get more radiation exposure from eating bananas than they ever will from this New Mexico repository site.
