A good first step would be to stop assuming that aerosol dusts are 
the only route of uranium oxide exposure, and start testing for 
signs and symptoms of uranyl oxide gas, which disperses further 
and in very different patterns than the aerosol.  In the opinion 
of uranium oxidation expert Carl Alexander, who has been publishing 
scientific studies of uranium trioxide gas since 1960, the UO3 gas
is the most likely combustion product, stable, and likely toxic.

We won't know until the authorities consider the possibility -- 
why haven't they after all these decades?
