FUCKING HELL!!!!!

Imagine living in a village and told you’d have to move out for TEN YEARS because you’re on top of 3500 tons of ammo?

Residents of a Swiss town may have to abandon their homes for more than a decade while authorities clear out a massive World War II underground weapons cache nearby, officials say.

Around 3,500 tons of ammunition remain inside a former armory in Mitholz. Some of the material already exploded in 1947, killing nine people and damaging properties. But most of what’s left of the arsenal is now reportedly covered by fallen rocks.

“Depending on how the work develops, residents should expect the evacuation to last up to more than 10 years,” the Agence France-Presse quoted Switzerland’s defense ministry as saying.

Part of that evacuation could include rerouting a major road that passes through the town.

Switzerland’s defense ministry says clean-up is expected to begin in 2031 following “extensive preparations,” but if any evacuation were to “pose insurmountable problems,” a rock mass could be placed on top of the armory instead to minimize risk, according to Sky News.

The station says systems in place are monitoring temperatures, gas emissions, and rock movements at the site.

But officials are hoping they can eventually remove all the ammunition there.

Project manager Hanspeter Aellig was quoted by EuroNews as saying that failing to do so would be viewed as leaving a “toxic gift for defendants.”

    Is the government going to provide assistance with all this? Moving expenses? Loan guarantees for new homes? Job relocation?
    Much as I detest getting government involved in anything, I think that since this is a government involved mess (the explosives cache), the government needs to directly assist those impacted (see what I did there?) in the moving and cleanup.
    Meanwhile, if I were there, I think I would need to see a proctologist to loosen up my tightly puckered asshole. EEP!

    If you want a real soil your underwear experience, I had one back in the late
    70s. I was in a 2 man crew repairing a large air compressor at the Aerojet
    General facility in the Chino Hills. 300,000 depleted Uranium 30mm tank
    killer rounds and God only knows how many tons of C-4 filled the warehouse.
    We started smelling smoke and soon after saw the flames coming up the
    hill and it was all over the only open road out.

    We had to break a lock (nobody could find the key) to open the rear gate, and
    follow game trails to bypass the fire. We came back a week later to finish the job
    and found every time the fire got near a building, the wind changed direction.
    Not a single building was damaged. If that stockpile exploded, you could
    have heard from San Diego to San Francisco!
