Downtown Austin Closed, Large Numbers of Birds found Dead

The Houston Chronicle is reporting as of 8:44 this morning that a 10 block section of Downtown Austin, leading up to the Capitol Building has been cordoned off while the Austin Fire department continues to test. Anyone who works in the area is advised to stay away. The concern is that this may not be a natural event and that this may be a chemical/biological attack. The area included in the exclusion zone is from Cesar Chavez to Eleventh Street and some side streets. The area is expected to remain closed until at least noon.
