"undetermined anomalies at the well head" -- Admiral Thad Allen

BP Gulf Spill Disaster: Engineers Detect Seepage Near BP's Capped Oil Well - CNBC

Emphasis should be centered on Admiral Allen's, almost 'oh, by the way' use of the word anomalies to describe reported hydrocarbon seepage near the capped Deepwater Horizon oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. Incidentally, hydrocarbon seepage is a masqueraded way of perhaps saying, oozing methane gas.

Those having short memories or perhaps better still, those depending on American media sources for information, methane gas is suspected of causing the explosion at the deep sea Maconda well, which got us into this entire mess in the first place. Therefore, a non-detected seepage of methane gas reportedly resulted in this:

Surely one must wonder if Admiral Allen's casual approach to describing these anomalies is his way of masking what an ominous threat the hydrocarbon seepage is, and what a massive explosion at this location might mean for those living in coastal areas currently occupied with tamponing tar balls greeting them daily on former pristine beaches.

In other words, would such a cataclysmic explosion result in something no one really considered a threat when this disaster commenced. Is it beyond belief to comprehend the magnitude of such a mega blow up resulting in a tsunami of biblical proportions?
