Powder not harmful

Powder not harmful
YOUNGSTOWN -- A post office official said emergency workers who responded to a report of a white powder at the Walnut Street post office Tuesday determined that the powder was not harmful.
Ernie Shipley, customer relations coordinator, said there was not enough powder to determine what it was -- but that it was not considered harmful. Postal workers were given instructions to clean the sorting machine where a clerk discovered the substance and operations resumed.
The post office had been evacuated for about 20 minutes about 12:30 a.m. The machine was cordoned off until Youngstown Fire Department emergency workers arrived later in the morning, Shipley said.
