Plum Island is the only location in the United States where bioterrorist attack disease agents can be studied. It is located 1 1/2 miles off the north-eastern end of Long Island, NY.<br />
In late August 2005, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it would replace the Disease Centre, with a &quot;next generation biological and agricultural defence facility&quot; at a location yet to be determined.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/156206plum.jpg>
