Earthquake dangers near nuclear materials store at Nevada National Security Site

Las Vegas Review Journal 29th March 2019 A defense safety board is concerned the Department of Energy has failed to
address a vulnerability to earthquake hazards at a Nevada National Security
Site facility where nuclear materials are stored — including a recent
shipment of weapons-grade plutonium. The Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety
Board outlined its concerns to Energy Secretary Rick Perry and issued a
report that pointed out the safety risks to workers and the “offsite
public” due to seismic hazards to structures at the Device Assembly
Facility at the Nevada security site, located about 90 miles north of Las
Vegas.
