Seperately, three non-WRPS workers reported possible vapors-related symptoms today after working yesterday near AY/AZ Farms, where other workers were evacuated yesterday. All three were taken to the site medical provider; two were released back to work. Evaluation of the third is still pending.
WRPS spokesman Rob Roxburgh issued a press release stating data collection and analysis is underway in the affected farms to understand what happened and what might be done to reduce the likelihood of future occurrences.
