BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Urban underground ‘faces risks’:

Natural disasters can be a threat to the growing expansion of big cities underground, the United Nations says.

It says developers often burrow beneath the surface without knowing enough of the risks and with inadequate plans to lessen the effects of any disaster.

I imagine this will be taken more seriously than it would have been a month ago.
