I live exactly 10 miles away. We are not under the shelter in place but there are National Guard troops everywhere. West Point Ky has been evacuated
(within a 1.2 mile radius) apparently there are two tankers next to the one that exploded that are damaged but not leaking yet. Butane was in the
tanker that exploded. Nothing really going on. It has totally jacked up my commute to Louisville everyday this week and 31W was supposed to be opened
tonight. NO GO. NOw I must drive 30 miles out of my way to get to Louisville each day.
I live on the south side of Ft Knox, this was on the Northwestern side.
Air seems fine. I was just outside smoking and didnt explode.
I am coughing but that could be from anything. Trying not to get paranoid here. My daughter is ashmatic and so far she is fine.
My issue is..why did they call in the National Guard when Ft Knox has 30k soldiers at their disposal?
And second..if they expand the shelter in place (turn off anything that draws air from outside in...like heat sources) while I am asleep how the heck
will I know? I am on 12 hr shifts and I am exhausted.
Right now I feel like...Go to sleep. Die. Go to sleep. Die. UGH. Stay awake get fired tomorrow for being a sarcastic piece of work...decisions
Advice? I am a little nervous. NOT PANICKED so dont make fun of me. Just a little nervous. I welcome any advice you all can give to me.
