I'm in the RED!
No worries, we are not going to be evacuated unless all that Methane goes up, and then we won't need to be evacuated because we'll either be
tsunamied or fried!
Benzene, Benzine, CO2, Methane, and all the other gaseous problems are probably going to be above the 6 ppb threshhold in some areas some of the time,
but it won't be cause for evacuation, and it won't be a constant threat. It will come and go. They will probably issue air quality advisories and
tell people with breathing problems to stay inside.
You are correct, it is logistically impossible to evacuate Miami, Houston, Galveston, Austin, New Orleans, Mobile, Pensacola, Tampa Bay, all the
military bases, and all the Caribbean island nations, and all of the Mexican Gulf Coast.
It can't happen, it won't happen, and I am certain (from state government sources) that they are not even considering it. They have talked about
it, because the press and the rumor mill is talking about it. The rumors started outside the Emergency Planners, but then the planners had to address
the possibility. It was discussed very briefly, and determined unnecessary and logistically impossible, at least with data and forecasts that are
available right now.
Nobody is talking about the quiet sea of dissolved methane creeping along the bottom of the Gulf right now though. The potential of a Methane
Explosion that would kill everyone in those zones is becoming more and more possible by the day! If something disturbs all that liquified gas, and it
decides to change states, it will create a giant tsunami, it will kill a lot of life, suck out the oxygen, and quite possibly ignite into a giant
explosion. The Methane is the apocalyptic threat, the oil is a long term killer of life and economy, but the methane is a game-changing instantaneous
catastrophe waiting to happen.
