Tacoma, Washington Mail Facility Evacuated, Power Found

Aired April 22, 2003 - 11:56   ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: If you're just joining us, we've been following for the past hour or so this story coming to us out of Tacoma, Washington, a mail facility, there is some brown powder that's been tested now. Four tests or so out of five are showing right now that it is testing negative now for what a first test showed was either botulism or plague.
We're also following another story across the country; this coming to us out of Ft. Myers, Florida there at a cargo terminal at Southwest Florida International Airport there. Authorities are telling us now that six passengers on board a flight there were taken as a preliminary caution to a hospital for treatment, because of exposure to a white powder that showed up on that flight somewhere, somehow.

Right now, we understand that no travelers, no passengers on the flights coming in top that airport have been exposed to anything. We'll learn more about this, and we'll deliver it to you right here.
