8th November 2018 -ONGOING UPDATES - SANTA SUSANA FIELD LABORATORY/ROCKETDYNE ON FIRE
Extract:
Wind is blowing strong to the southwest carrying toxic smoke towards Ahmanson Ranch, the 101 Freeway, Liberty Canyon, Conejo Valley, Santa Monica Mountains and Malibu, potentially. This is a very dangerous event. All people who can smell the smoke from this fire should get themselves, their children, and pets inside and immediately close windows and use filtered air conditioning if possible. Masks should be worn and extreme care dealing with ash and embers. This is not a drill - ACT NOW

6:10 pm Friday Nov. 9, 2018 MICHAEL COLLINS/ENVIROREPORTER.COM UPDATE:
"Dr. Robert Dodge, President of Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, shares the community’s concerns. “We know what substances are on the site and how hazardous they are. We’re talking about incredibly dangerous radionuclides and toxic chemicals such a trichloroethylene, perchlorate, dioxins and heavy metals. These toxic materials are in SSFL’s soil and vegetation, and when it burns and becomes airborne in smoke and ash, there is real possibility of heightened exposure for area residents.”

I've been staying inside as much as possible. It's very sad how local authorities have down played the danger of the smoke coming off the SSFL site and surrounding areas. Probably because of all the tourists and the money they bring.

If you watch the firefighter, they all have mask on. They must know what going on there.

The EPA's AirNow.gov website is good to look at too, because radiation is carried with the smoke.

Smoke Screen - Woolsey Fire Contamination Cover-up

Extracts:

The tremendously destructive Woolsey Fire has been widely reported as beginning “near” the Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL or Rocketdyne), but it appears that the fire began on the Rocketdyne property itself.

“The Woolsey Fire likely released and spread radiological and chemical contamination that was in SSFL’s soil and vegetation via smoke and ash,” said Dr. Bob Dodge, president of the two-time Nobel Peace Prizing winning group. “All wildfire smoke can be hazardous to health, but if SSFL had been cleaned up long ago as DTSC promised, we’d at least not have to worry about exposure to dangerous radionuclides and chemicals as well.”
