     Future Plans
    The aformentioned humanitarian storage area will be there for the foreseeable future. As stated before, it's best to keep away from this area during the day and early evening. I've personally have nearly been caught in this part.

    Another part, on the other end of the facility, may very well be converted into a workplace for workers making shirts and such in the future.
