If one does come to North America it would come in over Alaska or British Columbia as the trough and the currents will curve it into the North Pacific leaving Washington and Oregon alone. It will not follow an "West to East" trajectory on or about the 40 - 45 Degree North longitude line.

I think you might be a little confused. This happened IN Oregon, it's not coming from somewhere else.

Anyway being in Portland this is a little freaky, but it's been raining most of the day so hopefully that will help a bit.

If it roots in Oregon then it is not coming from anywhere else but Oregon.

I'm not really sure what your getting at....

Your first post said "if it comes to north America" and "leaving Oregon alone"

Which makes no sense as this was a chemical cloud that escaped from Milwaukie, which is in Oregon next to Portland. So the cloud is already in Oregon, why are we talking about Oregon not getting hit by it, and Alaska and BC? This is a cloud of gas that was produced inside of Oregon, not coming from somewhere else and passing over Oregon.

WTF, hydrofluoric acid!?

That's one of the most deadliest substances that could be released next to radiation. I worked with that stuff... let me tell you:
You get ~2 drops of it on your hand... and if you don't have the antidote nearby you WILL die.



Very very toxic stuff.

So far, it looks like this is pretty much over without too much bad effect:


Oh, and that chemical cloud of hydrochloric and nitric acid that billowed out of Precision Castparts in outer Southeast last night? Clackamas County authorities say there is no more danger from the cloud -- which injured four people -- but that doesn't mean everything's clear. Southeast Johnson Creek Road will remain closed from Stanley Street to 45th Avenue for a few more hours, and Whitman Elementary is closed just in case.

OregonLive.com

Four people -- including two firefighters -- sustained minor injuries Wednesday evening and were brought to a local hospital. However, Steve McAdoo, Clackamas Fire District 1 spokesman said it was a precaution and "they're doing fine."

A mile-long stretch of Southeast Johnson Creek Boulevard remains closed this morning and Whitman Elementary, which has bus stops near the plant, is closed today as a precaution.

Fire officials Wednesday warned residents within a half-mile radius of Precision Castparts to stay in their homes but that suggestion has been lifted.


KTVZ.com provides some more clarity on what happened:

The Oregonian described the cloud as hydrochloric and nitric acid. McAdoo says a power failure affected the air scrubber that scrubs the fumes at the plant, so fumes built up and then escaped. He says the chemicals are used to clean and cut metal.


Glad to hear everyone's pretty much OK.

better get some duct tape and plastic sheets.

Ya know kinda like how Cheney said we could protect ourselves.

Yes, stay inside, do not flee, do not panic, GovCorp has everything under control.

I feel bad for you folks up there. I am down south from there in the Corvallis area, and I know some people were worried here even. Any updates on the situation?

I was wondering if anything ever became of this.
Any updates - where did the cloud go? What
about the people in the plant when this first
happened.
