More U S States Plus the Virgin Islands Get Powder Letters
Eight more government offices have received envelopes containing suspicious powder.
On Thursday the letters arrived in Georgia, Kansas, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, and Wyoming. Letters in several of the states led to office shutdowns or evacuations.
Tests indicate the powder found in Georgia, Kansas, North Dakota and Utah wasn't harmful. Virgin Islands officials determined the powder there was corn starch.
Tests are pending in the other states. Officials in some states from earlier this week say the powder was flour or some other harmless food substance.
