"We are working as quickly and as thoroughly as possible to resolve a serious concern within the Test Area," King said. "Measures like these (lock down of our gates) are not taken lightly. No one is in immediate danger but these steps are required," he said.

This I find extremely interesting though. The particular wording being used. "No one is in immediate danger".

Implying that there is danger. Implying that something dangerous could happen, but not right away. Very interesting.

I dont expect much will happen in the next hour or two.....
The VX comment seems like it may have been flippant remark maybe...and now its regretted.
The vial would be how deadly actuallyÉ
here is assume a vial is about test tube size...so how deadly is this stuff what would a vial of it accomplish by way of mass destruction.....that is a more pertinent line of inquirey....
if there is another cause at least well be clear on the vial thing...

I would assume that the poor guy answering the phone is probably just as in the dark as we are. there could be a 3 headed alien running around on a part of the base and he wouldn't know.

A small vial...possible 20,000-30,000 dead within minutes. Given the right situation. And, after following this for a bit I don't think people just tweet "flippant" remarks about a serious deadly nerve agent. Heck, most people don't even know what VX is...so it is very probable that the "tweet incident" is true. But at this point we will have to wait and see what the "official" explanation for this is. So far they haven't said squat. And none of the people from the site have come forward to offer further information.

How VX works
•The extent of poisoning caused by VX depends on the amount of VX to which a person was exposed, how the person was exposed, and the length of time of the exposure.
•Symptoms will appear within a few seconds after exposure to the vapor form of VX, and within a few minutes to up to 18 hours after exposure to the liquid form.
•VX is the most potent of all nerve agents. Compared with the nerve agent sarin (also known as GB), VX is considered to be much more toxic by entry through the skin and somewhat more toxic by inhalation.
•It is possible that any visible VX liquid contact on the skin, unless washed off immediately, would be lethal.
•All the nerve agents cause their toxic effects by preventing the proper operation of the chemical that acts as the body’s “off switch” for glands and muscles. Without an “off switch,” the glands and muscles are constantly being stimulated. They may tire and no longer be able to sustain breathing function.
•VX is the least volatile of the nerve agents, which means that it is the slowest to evaporate from a liquid into a vapor. Therefore, VX is very persistent in the environment. Under average weather conditions, VX can last for days on objects that it has come in contact with. Under very cold conditions, VX can last for months.
•Because it evaporates so slowly, VX can be a long-term threat as well as a short-term threat. Surfaces contaminated with VX should therefore be considered a long-term hazard.
Immediate signs and symptoms of VX exposure
•People may not know they were exposed to VX because it has no odor.
•People exposed to a low or moderate dose of VX by inhalation, ingestion (swallowing), or skin absorption may experience some or all of the following symptoms within seconds to hours of exposure:
◦Runny nose
◦Watery eyes
◦Small, pinpoint pupils
◦Eye pain
◦Blurred vision
◦Drooling and excessive sweating
◦Cough
◦Chest tightness
◦Rapid breathing
◦Diarrhea
◦Increased urination
◦Confusion
◦Drowsiness
◦Weakness
◦Headache
◦Nausea, vomiting, and/or abdominal pain
◦Slow or fast heart rate
◦Abnormally low or high blood pressure
•Even a tiny drop of nerve agent on the skin can cause sweating and muscle twitching where the agent touched the skin.
•Exposure to a large dose of VX by any route may result in these additional health effects:
◦Loss of consciousness
◦Convulsions
◦Paralysis
◦Respiratory failure possibly leading to death
•Showing these signs and symptoms does not necessarily mean that a person has been exposed to VX.
What the long-term health effects are
Mild or moderately exposed people usually recover completely. Severely exposed people are not likely to survive. Unlike some organophosphate pesticides, nerve agents have not been associated with neurological problems lasting more than 1 to 2 weeks after the exposure.

How people can protect themselves, and what they should do if they are exposed to VX
•Recovery from VX exposure is possible with treatment, but the antidotes available must be used quickly to be effective. Therefore, the best thing to do is avoid exposure:
◦Leave the area where the VX was released and get to fresh air. Quickly moving to an area where fresh air is available is highly effective in reducing the possibility of death from exposure to VX vapor.
■If the VX release was outdoors, move away from the area where the VX was released. Go to the highest ground possible, because VX is heavier than air and will sink to low-lying areas.
■If the VX release was indoors, get out of the building.
•If people think they may have been exposed, they should remove their clothing, rapidly wash their entire body with soap and water, and get medical care as quickly as possible.
•Removing and disposing of clothing:
◦Quickly take off clothing that has liquid VX on it. Any clothing that has to be pulled over the head should be cut off the body instead of pulled over the head. If possible, seal the clothing in a plastic bag. Then seal the first plastic bag in a second plastic bag. Removing and sealing the clothing in this way will help protect people from any chemicals that might be on their clothes.
◦If clothes were placed in plastic bags, inform either the local or state health department or emergency personnel upon their arrival. Do not handle the plastic bags.
◦If helping other people remove their clothing, try to avoid touching any contaminated areas, and remove the clothing as quickly as possible.
•Washing the body:
◦As quickly as possible, wash any liquid VX from the skin with large amounts of soap and water. Washing with soap and water will help protect people from any chemicals on their bodies.
◦Rinse the eyes with plain water for 10 to 15 minutes if they are burning or if vision is blurred.
•If VX has been ingested (swallowed), do not induce vomiting or give fluids to drink.
•Seek medical attention right away. Dial 911 and explain what has happened.
How VX exposure is treated
•Treatment consists of removing VX from the body as soon as possible and providing supportive medical care in a hospital setting. Antidotes are available for VX. They are most useful if given as soon as possible after exposure.
How people can get more information about VX
People can contact one of the following:

•Regional poison control center: 1-800-222-1222
•Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
◦Public Response Hotline (CDC)
■800-CDC-INFO
■888-232-6348 (TTY)
◦E-mail inquiries: cdcinfo@cdc.gov
This fact sheet is based on CDC’s best current information. It may be updated as new information becomes available.
