Don't worry about that Big BOOM

So we get a warning on twitter, facebook and all the media.
Don't worry about sirens, BOOMS, and dust clouds Saturday morning.
We're just blowing up a reactor....

Paper sez - "Dust rises Saturday from the unseen doughnut-shaped hole of what remains underground of the Plutonium Recycle Test Reactor just north of Richland. Contractors detonated explosives to destroy what was left of the reactor building instead of removing it piece by piece. Hanford officials said demolishing the structure saved time and money."

Okay.
Where did the dust go?
Hopefully all the bad dust was already removed.
