A mysterious white powdery substance found today at the Naval Construction Battalion Center Gulfport is being investigated, a base official told the Sun Herald.
The substance was found inside a sealed bag. Base officials said its contents did not spill. The substance is being taken to a lab for further testing.
“No one was injured, treated or exposed,” said Rob Mims, CBC Gulfport public affairs officer. “The outside of the bag was swiped and tested and did not reveal anything. The incident is under investigation.”
