Natural Disasters/Limnic Eruption
A limnic eruption is a dangerous but rare event in which certain lakes suddenly release accumulated gases, which leads to asphyxiation in the surrounding area.
It is possible to remediate the threat of a limnic eruption before one occurs through the use of degassing machinery on a lake of concern.
