The facility has a 70 percent chance of failure to contain biological pathogens "BIO WEAPONS". Researchers say " A direct hit by a F-5 Tornado could rupture seals containing the pathogenic weapons" Facilty officials say the lab is totally "safe" and there is no need for concern. Seeing the increase in tornado outbreaks. Why should we worry? Right?......... Ahhhhhh Kansas!!!!!
