via Homeland Security to simulate effects of biological weapons outside Newkirk

CHILOCCO, Okla. —

Residents in Newkirk are concerned as the Department of Homeland Security plans to simulate the effects of biological weapons on buildings just outside of the city.

In a statement, the agency said they will be releasing non-hazardous, non-toxic chemicals and biological materials at the Chilocco Indian School. The study is part of the department’s ongoing commitment to preparedness, officials say.

Kyle Oestmenn lives less than half a mile away from the school. He said he just found out about the tests Thursday on social media.
