A US nuclear weapons facility has reported it is 'experiencing an operational emergency'.

Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas, tweeted: "The Pantex Plant is experiencing an operational emergency. The Emergency Response Organization has been activated."

They later added: "Precautions are being taken due to a security event.

Carson County Sheriff Department is reporting that FM 2373 is closed from I-40 north.

Officials are also reporting the east side of the Pantex Plant is completely inaccessible.

Not seen anything posted here about this yet.
Anyone got something more substantial?

Also on twitter:


The security event at Pantex has ended without incident. Thanks to the Carson County Sheriff and

@AmarilloPD

for their quick response.

So hopefully all resolved now.
Would be interesting to know what was up.

Case closed then - I hope.
Probably just the newspapers using some hot keywords as clickbait.

Are you saying the Sherriff is two people or the department? From what I’m seeing neither is the case...
