on Thursday a 200 by 200 foot “slurry area” has appeared in bayou corne in northern assumption parish…The formation of the slurry area was accompanied by a diesel-like odor that some residents said burned their eyes and noses but dissipated by midmorning Friday…Assumption parish officials declared an emergency and called for an evacuation of residents living near the nearly 1-acre muddy site.
I guess we'll find out soon.
A potential failure
of a cavern operated by Texas brine
company may have caused the slurry area,
or sinkhole, which swallowed full-grown
trees and denuded a formerly forested
patch of cypress swamp. Final
determination of a positive link between
the failure of the cavern and either the
natural gas bubbling or the slurry area has
not been made. In response, gov. bobby
jindal declared an emergency Friday.
The production of salt from a salt deposit - either domal or bedded - creates an undergound brine-filled cavity in the salt. These salt cavities, or "caverns" can be used for the safe underground storage of highly volatile gas and liquid products. In addition, these caverns are used for storing other liquids such as crude oil and other gasses such as compressed air. The Strategic Petroleum Reserve is stored in salt caverns.
Texas Brine put its first cavern into liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) storage service in 1952. Since then, dozens of additional caverns have been put into a variety of storage services. Creating over 15 million barrels of cavity space a year with brine production activities, Texas Brine has the capability to meet your storage needs with existing or soon to be available caverns.
The operation of underground liquid storage requires
the prompt and timely injection or withdrawal of brine
to support product movements. Underground Storage,
LLC is uniquely qualified to provide this service.

Could This one! be from Fracking?
any way to find out ware they frack?
I am suprised that thire is no bible worrning about holes opening up?
gates to hell?
maybe the tunnles they did are caveing in on them?
just my thoughts.
First, consider Canada. Few realize that Canada has been extracting oil and gas using fracking techniques for the last 35 years. It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of wells have been drilled there using these techniques.

Woah, that is weird. Huge sinkhole reeking of diesel? That's a first for me.

This is my biggest concern currently...
Back in Jan. of this year, I was heavily researching the 'mystery booms' that had started popping up all over.
On one of the USGS forums I was using, a man claimed to know what was causing the booms and then went into great detail on what to look for.
His post, and the entire thread have long since been purged.
However, what he said stuck with me and from that point on I was waiting for the signs.
He claimed that the booms were the result of Super Fracking that had exposed a large underground cavern that sat against an exposed section of a subsection of the Madrid fault. That when this happened they knew they'd messed up big time. From then on the US Gov has been undergoing a 24/7 operation of keeping the cavern pressurized with fluid, to prevent the methane from travelling through the fault and destabalizing it.
He claimed that, if methane bubbles started appearing in the gulf, it would be a sign that the US efforts had failed and that the methane was now free flowing.
He said if we started to see methane bubbles and sinkholes around the gulf coast, it would signal a window of weeks before a cascade failure occurs.
When the methane forces it's way through the fault, the resulting force will rip up the entire fault complex and end up ripping the entire Mississppi River valley a new one.
He estimated at least 100 miles on either side of the Mississppi as being underwater. The new continental divide.
He claimed all this and I began waiting and watching...
