So, in the event of disaster, the horrendous consequences would be unforeseeably catastrophic for people, life, & lands in the vicinity of unspecified miles radius, continue for unknown time, & be unprovided for.....which is what local people have been warning for many years. But don't mind that, it will make some people a lot of money!
