KENNEWICK, WA - An evacuation notification was issued to Hanford tank farm workers Friday, but it turns out there was no one to evacuate.

Washington River Protection Solutions confirms the evacuation notification was made as a precaution when operations staff heard word of a worker reporting smelling chemical vapors.

But it turns out, WRPS confirmed there were no workers in the S tank farm at that time.

WRPS says workers did not enter the S tank farm complex during the 90 minute evacuation notice until it was discovered there was no validity to the reports.
