CONFIRMED: Salt cavern below sinkhole has failed


enenews.com

Assumption Parish officials have been advised by DNR [Louisiana Department of Natural Resources] that their exploratory well observers have confirmed that brine cavern #3 has failed. Per Texas Brine’s press release, “[...] The retrieved material does not appear to be consistent with material normally found in brine cavern operations. [...] This statement confirms the suspicions of parish officials: Texas Brine Oxy Cavern #3 had failed.

[...] Given the confirmation of the failure of Texas Brine’s cavern, the parish will continue to look to Texas Brine for accountability and eva

Heres an updated story with a video.
enenews.com...

So its official the sink hole is being caused by a failing salt cavern. Also I believe this is the one that housed radioactive byproducts but I could be wrong. This is just another drop in the bucket of ecological disasters we've created.

I have been collecting the articles about this crisis since (almost) the start.

Click the last item in the menu on the right panel. Then click on the RSS feed and select any that interest you.

Thanks for your efforts.

Seems Windword could get your links to work; but, I can't.

Starting at crisismapped.pelicanbill.com... which does work; when I click on the Fresh Content Link and Resource Links - links I get:

This crisis [] no longer exists in the database.


When I click on Search Results and RSS Feeds I get thrown back to the index page crisismapped.pelicanbill.com... which says absolutely nothing much at all.

What's broken? My end? How do I fix it?

Click on the "Bayou Corne Sinkhole" link to the right. I think that will get you there. It's a page of links, articles and other info.



Hope that works!


Use this link, as the one you posted didn't work for me either.

Thank you for the reply but that's exactly what I did.

I clicked the one you have checked in red there.

On the page it took me to - there were four more links - none worked correctly as I described above.

Thank you!

Your link at the bottom ( crisismapped.pelicanbill.com... ) was the same as the RSS link on the page that takes me back to the index page (the one you had with the red check mark).

I guess I'm hopeless. Thank you for trying!

Given it was abandoned because it leaked pressure, who could not see this coming. Surprised it was a surprise to anyone.

Is it? That's what I'm wondering... I was confused the first I heard of this. Something about butane? and there was also something about toxic waste. In my memory one was nearby, and one was inside??

I don't know.

from first thread linked up in second post:
"Also in 1995, local residents report Texas Brine was given the go ahead to store radioactive chemicals in the empty mine, however officials are saying the only radioactive materials are actually from natural occurring radioactive substances, of which none have been found. (seems fishy) "

So that sounds less scary.

Ahh here is the other part:

"One cavern that contains 940,000 gallons of butane is of particular concern, Torres said. It's about 2,000 feet from the sinkhole. "


Here is a cool video I found within the comments of the article posted in the OP. It isn't the same salt dome or sink hole, but it will give you a better idea at what is going on.

Well it cannot be completely empty

Company officials say they found new debris in the cavern. They haven't investigated the cavern's depth since last year, but say it's at least 1,300 feet shallower now. Texas Brine officials told NBC33 that this is only their initial observation. Source
