Brazilian iron ore miner Samarco Minerac?o SA received serious danger warnings from ground sensors in 2014 and 2015, before a deadly dam burst last November that caused widespread environmental destruction, Globo TV's Fantastico news magazine said Sunday.Fantastico said the studies did not include sensor data from areas critical to the integrity of recent enlargements to the dam, a sign of scant regard for the sensor data, according to a prosecutor interviewed by the television program.A Samarco lawyer told Fantastico the firm followed all dam safety and environmental laws and the area of the dam where sensor data was missing was the most secure part of the structure.
