Doesn't matter, it was on the science program Daily Planet on
the Discovery Channel in Canada. They said that over 200 people
had suffered I'll effects from this event. They showed video.
They didn't waste much time on it. It still assumed that it was
caused by a meteor but might have hit near a vent and some
noxious gasses are leaking out. There is bubbling in the water
[not boiling] as something vents to the surface, possibly
methane or hydrocarbons.

There was an astronomer on the scene who said it was a meteor
impact so the British armchair astronomer's opinion is moot if
not silly.

This event sure has legs for something that is some natural
