(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Several blasts at a military facility near the Russian town of Orenburg on Tuesday (October 9) led to the evacuation of a nearby settlement, with more villages to be evacuated in the next hours. A triple blast was likely an explosion of missiles stored at a facility near Orenburg and due to be disposed of by the military, Russian media reported. No casualties were reported, but Donguz settlement was promptly evacuated, with the further evacuation of three more settlements in the plans. An amateur video shot in Orenburg showed white smoke billowing on the horizon and people gathered on the central square waiting for news. There were no signs of any radiation leak, Russian officials said.
