This is a bit of a continuation to the thread I posted ealier, but I thought this deserved its own link...

"Much of the University of Texas medical school on this island suffered flood damage during Hurricane Ike, except for one gleaming new building, a national biological defense laboratory that will soon house some of the most deadly diseases in the world.

How a laboratory where scientists plan to study viruses like Ebola and Marburg ended up on a barrier island where hurricanes regularly wreak havoc puzzles some environmentalists and community leaders."

How convenient.. Ooops, sorry, the hurricane released our new Ebola strain.. our bad.

Why? Because there's a secret base there.

Can't say more, or they'll come and get me.

It does make sense when you think about it. Would you rather have the building in on the outskirts of a city? In the midwest where tornado's are unpredictable and frequent? California where earthquakes frequently happen?

If a massive hurricane did come through and destroy the building it would be isolated, and if anything did get out I'm sure it couldn't survive in the water.

Makes since to me at first I was freaked out then I though about it.

Doesnt make sense to me

I think the best place to put it would be in an isolated area that doesnt get hit by hurricanes....

Wyoming.. Alaska.. just to name a few

Hastobemoretolife: What about airborne nasties?

I think the best place for these blasted things are deep underground. Exactly like the "Resident Evil" movies.

I'm sure we have a few of these too, probably beyond BSL-4. Think evil scientist type experiments - zombies, monsters, beasts.

If it can be imagined, then I'm sure it already exists.
