Twenty-two patients, most of them children, were taken to hospitals in Colorado following a chemical incident, initially reported to be a chlorine gas spill, at a Lafayette recreation center’s pool. The facility has been closed to the public.
The patients reported symptoms such as coughing and nausea, Lafayette Fire Chief David Friedel said, adding he had “no clue why those people took ill.”
The strongest earthquake in 100 years hit northern Sweden on Saturday. The quake measured 4.2 on the Richter scale according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC). The epicenter was between the towns of Pitea and Skelleftea, about 45 kilometers off the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia. There have been no reports of injuries or significant damage. The Swedish national seismic network says that the Gulf of Bothnia “has relatively high seismic activity but has not experienced a quake of this size in the last 100 years,” the Local reports.
