A seed bank for all eternity, that can be flooded by a rainstorm. Note - not melt, just rain, which tends to happen in Spring time.
Right near the front: "there’s been water intrusion at the front of the tunnel every single year". So it's not a new problem at all - certainly nothing to do with global warming - it's just crappy engineering and/or construction.
Clickbait for the "end of the world" types.
I can almost bet there's at least one engineer related to the project that pointed out this issue and were ignored. Like Challenger.
I can bet there's one CEO who got a nice bonus who is long gone and ru(i)nning some other project.
