🗞 Gnomeregan In Crisis

An explosion rocked Gnomeregan this afternoon, with confirmed reports of an outpour of radiation and mass casualties. Initial reports suggest the explosion was caused by the release of grinding machines pressure valves, which caused the explosion, as well as the release of toxic radiation throughout the city.

Although the death toll is still uncertain, it is believed that as much as 85% of the city's population may be lost as a result of this highly destructive explosion and radiation.

High Tinker Mekkatorque and his cabinet were safely evacuated to an undisclosed location. King Magni Bronzebeard today announced the city of Ironforge has granted Mekkatorque and his people asylum, with arrangements being made to accommodate them within the walls of Ironforge.

Mekgineer and Chief Advisor Sicco Thermaplugg, who has faced criticism in recent weeks for having foreknowledge of an impending trogg invasion, defended the Gnomeregan government's decision to release the pressure valves. When asked if the intent was to release toxic radiation as a deterrent to the trogg invasion, Thermaplugg responded "What we did was objectively the best course of action, considering everything we knew, and everything we know now". Thermaplugg was present in the city during the explosion. His whereabouts are unknown at this time.
