USA: nuclear accident in South Georgia: chemical explosions at radioactive waste site

The Perma-Fix Environmental Services plant at Valdosta (Georgia, border with Florida) suffered a series of huge chemical explosions today. The industry describes itself as "a global provider of nuclear services and radioactive waste management solutions". The profile of the residues treated in the plant are openly described as "radioactive waste".

The plume of the accident rose at least 30 meters above ground, what may imply radioactive and other unclear risk for the surrounding area.
