Hi all,

I work at Creighton. Details are still sketchy, but this article is the most thorough I've seen:

https://omaha.com/news/local/creighton-student-tells-officials-she-had-tried-to-make-ricin-leading-to-evacuation-of-dorm/article_5906c872-56ea-11eb-ba14-8fc7845e2db4.html?fbclid=IwAR1aJgerPWR5GcRHRrkR6IoHHXYTdbgiQiFK58k0K0qoUdakUw8YjlaV1i8

 

The fire department finished the hazmat cleanup around 11 am CST and students were allowed to re-enter the building.

Omaha is currently experiencing blizzard conditions and people are supposed to stay off the roads, so I don't anticipate much more information today.

Understand that there was a hazmat incident at Creighton University in Omaha this morning.  Possible production of ricin.  Any details in local news?
