Emergency Crews Respond to Coast Guard Base Seattle: Unknown White Substance in Mail

The official Twitter account of the United States Coast Guard in the Pacific Northwest has just tweeted that emergency crews are responding to Coast Guard Base Seattle after two members of the Coast Guard were exposed to an unknown white substance while handling mail this morning.

By coincidence, it was announced earlier today that Russia’s consulate in the city would be closed by the United States government.

UPDATE: Seattle Fire Department’s Haz Mat team have determined there is no hazard associated with the mysterious white powder found from a package at USCG.
