(Kentucky) ‘White powder’ shuts down consular center.

The Kentucky Consular Center in Williamsburg shut down its loading dock Tuesday and called the regional hazmat team after a package was found containing an unknown white powder. The box containing the powder came from the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem, Israel, and was in a “diplomatic pouch,” said the Consular director. From Jerusalem, the package arrived at Washington D.C. and was then shipped to the consular office in Williamsburg. Testing by the Kentucky Post 11 Hazardous Materials team did not determine the nature of the substance, but did rule out the possibility of it being harmful.
