> >Interested in any complication or recent reports on evacuations due to chemical accidents. I have a somewhat dated publication from Oak Ridge (ONRL TM9882-1986) that describes evacuations due to chemical accidents. Wondering if DCHAS or other sources may an update to this work? Are there any organizations that keep track?\\\\]]

The ongoing CHAS hazmat headlines collection at found 1000 hits for the word evacuation at

This is based on media reports rather official sources such as the Coast Guard or emergency response dispatch centers, so it could be an underestimate of the number of necessary evacuations as a result of chemical events.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
