The sinkhole, found early Aug. 3, swallowed up swamp between the Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou areas south of La. 70 South.



In Louisiana here, there are about 13,000 of these abandoned wells throughout the sate that still need to be mitigated because they are polluting parts of the state of Louisiana and that is Big Oil, our biggest employee here in Louisiana," retired General Russel Honoré recently told CNN

"sinkhole engineer" < from the video
that sounds official,.
but is very scary if true, but the sensationalism in the first video is laughable it is just a hurricane for Pete sakes..and not even officialy yet ,they are saying a category 2-3 ,pretty routine stuff going on here...

I would like to post history of the area and what might of caused this issue in the first place. www.youtu.be... After all that salt dissolves down there and water rushing into these caverns only erodes the caverns and in time and if enough water erodes the cavern the water then may cause other caverns to erode and sink, i wonder how many more have sank besides these. I wonder if this gas is contained in tanks and if they are, have any of those tanks or lines been compromised due to the constant erosion happening down into these massive huge caverns? Why aren't they pumping out this gas before it becomes a massive huge exsplosion? How many areas are compromised? How much water is flowing into these salt caverns that were dug a long time ago? Why did they store waste in these holes? How low is the land mass around by the surrounding wells? Do you think that if they relieve the pressure, that who is to say that when the pressure is relieved that water will come to the top of the cavern and cause more erosion and more collapse resaulting in a massive flood of the area? Another vid. www.youtu.be... Also, these people that were told to physically move out and were given a lousy $875. dollar check for the inconvenience of this incident. Also, the number of people being evacuated is on the rise. These caverns run very,very deep and the amount of water that gushed down there does not help the erosion process nor does this hurricane. Many peoples and departments have mobilized there to this region. WHY?

Yea, with the arrival of more rain via Storm Isaac, expect the Unexpected


The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LA DEQ) released the results of testing for NORM showing Radium-226 was detected as being present at a concentration of 63.569 pCi/liter while Radium-228 was detected as being present at a concentration of 18.705 pCi/liter. While State officials are saying naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) is below hazardous levels independent testings has confirmed that radium-226 and radium-228 levels at sinkhole are about 15 times higher than the safe limits and state’s soil contamination standards.


If this is true....you have a perfect storm rising...no pun intended....

May very well be a place that can no longer be habitable thanks to the force of nature, and the short sightedness of man.

Just think of the storm busting a bigger hole and then depositing this stuff via rainfall all the way up the Mississippi River.......

Not that simple.

The butane is half a mile underground in a liquid form, for it to rise to the surface salt water is required to do it.

Salt water is heavier than butane and you'd need a hell of a lot to do it I imagine.

So no, rainfall, even 500mm in an hour would not effect the butane.

Wasn't speaking of the Butane, was speaking of the radiation this hole is giving off thats leaking airborne.

Source is the same as my previous post.....saturate the soil with water, clouds suck up water....clouds redeposit water somewhere else.

Where are the results of these radiation tests?

I have found numerous air, soil and water reports from the Department of Environmental Quality:

Well, it does say independant tests...meaning that it isnt from the Gov....good question. And do you honeslty think the Gov would put out such info if it wasn't in their best interest to do so?
