Well I guess the national news crews didn't get the memo....Most Hanford workers are off today due to the tunnel collapse situation!

All non essential Hanford workers had the day off including workers at the VIT plant construction site. On the other hand "Essentail" workers pulled all nighters of from what I'm hearing 12 hour shifts until the situation is fully assessed and under control.
