A nuclear weapons plant in Texas called in an emergency response team on Monday to deal with an “unexpected event,” reported local outlet KAMR/KCIT.
KAMR/KCIT reported that there was no impact off the site—the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas—but that some local roads had been closed amid the unspecified emergency.
An unverified Twitter account that appeared to belong to the Pantex Plant initially called the situation an operational emergency. It tweeted that the Emergency Response Organization, a group of specially trained employees, had been activated. Later the account tweeted that “precautions are being taken due to a security event.”
