The source is a US Scientist who has visited the site (under what circumstances I don't know). This represents just another ratchetting up of the pressure topped off by today's artillery fire.
Unfortunately the NK's are like spoilt children they always want more and will cause trouble until they are appeased. They want more aid and the joint SK/NK economic zone reopened. Ironic considering they closed it down in the first place, kicked out the southerners and stripped the factories of all useful equipment and refused to give the stuff back. They want the SK to return and re-equip the same factories and start-up again!
The PRC should act like the paternal grandmother and give them a short sharp rap on the knuckles before the whole thing turns very very nasty. The sad thing being you could lay waste to large areas of NK and not impact the standard of living of the average man in the street, the same couldn't be said for the south whose economy is booming by comparison.
If you live in Seoul you will get about 60 seconds notice (first siren) before the NK missiles starting hitting the centre of town.
