Thanks Ben.
I always keep my eyes on any storm in the Gulf (even when they say don't worry about it...because they are famous for getting it wrong) This one looks as if it will affect Alabama and Florida....but I promise you I'll watch it. I need to go check the latest news on the radiation thing..... I know that the main concern was the butane though. They were supposed to test the radiation level (they SAY it was "naturally occuring radioactive waste", whatever THAT means)
What I wonder is why is the Department of Homeland Security involved? A collapsed salt mine is on the DHS's priority list?

fyi; yes, collapsed salt mines are #38 on our list, between VP Joe Biden escaping his handlers (#37) and the Cleveland Browns making the playoffs (#39; apocalyptic but unlikely).

Just found this update :

Sinkhole radiation 15 times over limit, residents urged to record health signs


A non-government group is urging Bayou Corne sinkhole area residents to use a new record log as a veteran radiation expert says Louisiana environmental officials are “in denial” over hazards posed by elevated radium levels that are actually fifteen times higher than the state limit, a "worst nightmare coming true," according to an environmental attorney

Stanley Waligora, a New Mexico-based radiation protection consultant and leading authority on health risks of naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) has confirmed that radium levels at Bayou Corne's sinkhole are not within safe limits, but instead, roughly 15 times higher than the state's acceptable level, according to one of the nation's leading environmental attorney's Stuart Smith.

"Radium in the body is absorbed because it is chemically similar to calcium. The normal maximum guideline level for radium in surface water is 5 picoCuries per liter, (pCi/L). The state’s testing found 82 pCi/L in the water of the growing sinkhole. Radium gives off alpha' radiation. This form of radiation is extremely dangerous if inhaled or ingested, and less dangerous if exposed by skin contact."

When radium decays, it produces the dangerous radioactive gas, radon. EPA warns that radon gas causes lung cancer, and exposure can be as hazardous to your lungs as a serious cigarette habit.

"Waligora said officials with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality need to launch immediate additional testing to ensure that the hazardous radium is not leaking into nearby groundwater and posing a threat to human health as well as livestock," Smith has stated Friday.


Waligora's recommendations come two days after Smith's blog first reported that analysis of DEQ test results from Bayou Corne, posted by the LEANouisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN), revealed elevated radium levels and airborne chemicals associated with highly volatile butane stored by Crosstex in a cavern near the sinkhole.


You say you live 20 km from it ?
Please move before the storm hit .. the flooding water will contaminate the entire area
and the rain will be toxic

of course you cant fight an invisible killer like that except moving away
do you have a radiation detector ?

Thanks Ben for the info:

Oh I feel so for those folks who live down in that area!

Am not so sure on the volcano. How large of an explosion would it actually take to crack down to the depth of magma under that part of Louisiana? Just wondering.

I do know now is the time I would be getting if any way possible my family & myself very far away from that area. Maybe an extended stay with relatives in another state... Radiation, gases, ground collapse, toxic chemicals leaching in water or air, possible explosion with radiation & gases. Until all issues resolved. Far far away, Far far away.

First of all, the butane will not explode underground. There is no oxygen there to form an explosive mix and it is still in a liquified form that is not explosive until converted back to a gas. Here is a link to a post I made to another thread that will explain just how the butane can explode and the different danger levels presented by different release scenarios,

Sounds like this is just getting worse. Now some scientists think the methane from the sinkhole is moving up the Louisiana aquifer.
