That is a nasty murky mess. From the looks, they are going to have to relocate their staging area soon. The water is now up to the parking area. They still are not giving a clear shot of the left hand side. The side that is closest to the homes is where they don't give a direct flyover. They pan the are but it doesn't give a clear shot of how far back the water goes into the trees.

Any guesses on how big this thing is now??

I interpret it differently, to be honest. I actually think the silence is based on the fact that they simply do not know, which they could never publicly admit (although it may win them back some brownie points with the general public if they simply came clean).

I honestly believe that they are in unchartered territory now and are not confident about making any definitive declarations.
They have said that they don't know and this is a new scenario but I am confident they have some hypotheses on the table. I know when I go to the dr's they give me the good, bad and the ugly consequences of .....but here we are not really getting anything.

No real guess, we will be told no later than December 18 at the next meeting.

Is it me or are they stretching the time out between these meetings? And if so, how long until they stop having public meetings at all? In other words, I think the people of Bayou Corne are headed toward the status of the red headed stepchild and eventually will only know what is going on when they see it happen right under their collective feet.

The residents have been getting pissed that the meetings are growing further apart. Also, TB hasn't measured the hole again because there is no observed change to the sinkhole.

No observed change???? Maybe they ought to watch the latest flyover- looked bigger to me. Actually what do they declare as the sinkhole? Waters edge or where the bottom has fallen out?

Popped in to give my two cents, since I haven't said anything in a while. You people down there, DO NOT let TB pull this crap, everyone needs to call TB everyday 4 or 5 times a day, get the local news involved, call local radio stations, those are your homes down there. Don't just stand by and let them railroad you. If I were one of the people misplaced from my home, I'd be the biggest pain in their a$$. Thats just me though. I almost lost my job the other day because I was trying to stick up for myself. First time in my life I told someone what they wanted to hear.I feel like crap, and I feel I really shortchanged myself, but it is ok, I will have the last laugh in the end. Oh yeah, get ahold of Erin Brokovich, She will set them straight!!!

This is off topic, but way to go. You shouldn't feel bad. You might overreact and face the consequences or be a doormat and face another set of problems. You can learn to balance the two



Oh yeah, get ahold of Erin Brokovich, She will set them straight!!!


To keep this on topic, I wonder where she and her cadre are in all of this? This would be ideal for them, eh? They've been all over other interesting stories like...
NY Town Baffled By Teens' Tics
They calmly slimmed away when that one turned out to be a case of an unusual psychological condition caused by stress.

This should be just as high profile as that nonsense. That story was interesting, but benign. The sinkhole near Bayou Corne should be high profile, but is an ecological oddity so unique that scientists haven't seen it George and cant predict what will happen! How can CNN justify not covering his, yet covering that situation in LeRoy, NY?

They will continue to ignore it and wait for a major disaster to happen. Then they will make a "Movie of the Week" about it thus guaranteeing it 15 minutes of fame before it fades into obscurity. But during that 15 minutes of fame there will be token fines and mea culpas all around just so the sheeple are assured that someone was punished. Thus assured that the bad guys always lose and the good guys always win, everybody will return to business as usual until the next "Movie of the Week" disaster. Of course there will be a small number of people, mostly the ones who got the short end of the stick, who will continue to complain; but their still small voices will be lost in the hurricane of chatter about the latest celebrity nonsense.

Otter, thank you for your words. I will come up on top in the end I gurantee.
On topic, there is a guy (patrick Gynel) who claims on the 21st there is going to be a massive earthquake and it will make the methane explode, and the New Madrid would rip, and Trip off Yellowstone. I have other comments on this thread, I said if the sink hole made the caverns go KABLUEY, the new madrid would go. And that was pretty early in the thread.

It just goes to show that a damn piece of paper(money) is more important than human life to big Corp. I hope they enjoyed their vacations in the Bahamas..... Hey just a thought, Why don't we invite the people from TB to go camping on the edge of the sink hole, and us not show up, and let the thing blow, it would serve them right, eye for an eye tooth for a tooth. You murder someone, put a bullet in their head, a molester, molest them the same way repeatdly, then put a bullet in their head, pretty straight forward and would simplify alot of things. Save ALOT of taxpayers money to.

Sorry got on a rant there. If anyone disagrees, by all means, say so.

Can anyone read German? I found this article that mentions the sinkhole yonder. I doubt it has any new info, but it would be interesting to see the event from a foreign media.

A local water treatment plant in my area has been doing something unusual. I don't have any pics but I can get some tomorrow. They are fillings this acre sized rubber bags with water. Kinda like huge water beds. Not sure if its some sort of expansion project or they are storing water for something. I'm just a regular person looking at this and has my mind racing. Any ideas of what this is?



I have no idea whatsoever. Could you go into a little more detail about where they are using these rubbber bags filled with water?

3 things

1. The residents are not letting TB go. Once we sink a hook down here, it stays on!

2. We at 5 to 10 inches of rain so far today. May see something big happen soon.

3. @tetra It's huge acre size bags with water lines. You can tell the water lines are on because water kinda leaks from the bag in some areas.

The bags are probably dewatering bags (sludge bags) that treatment plants use to consolidate solid waste.

Looked up what you said, and you are correct! Exactly what I seen. I'm trying to figure out what they are draining out that they need over a dozen of them. I guess they have more property then what you can see from the road.

Some idiot near the sinkhole (about 2 miles away) is scaring people with setting off a ground cannon. Leave it to some Cajuns... lol

Advocate had an article today....Officials seek gas source

From the article:

That the oil has sulfur content is not unheard of, although Louisiana is more often known for its “sweet” crude, which has a low sulfur content. “Sour” crude has higher sulfur content.
I wonder why this sinkhole is producing crude that is not normal for the state? Red flag! To me this is such an abnormal thing going on.

Can't wait to see what effect all the rain will have. As for the cannon.... God Bless'em might as well have some fun.

Here is another interesting thing for the citizens of Bayou Corne... a health survey. This is interesting that they are now collecting this info again. I recall a survey was done earlier and it was basically shrugged off IMO.

The Macando well was the same. Had a very high methane content.

I remember reading in one of the reports that they think the high sulfur content was from trapped vegetation that was exposed when the sinkhole opened up. The bigger problem though is the hydrogen sulfide. I don't think I have seen anything being said about the actual source of the H2S. Is it getting into the oil stream from the rotting vegetation or is it a part of the oil itself. If it is from the vegetation it will eventually play itself out. However, if it is in the oil that is bubbling up from under and/or around the salt it won't get any better until they can control the oil. And if the oil seepage gets worse then, assuming the H2S is in the oil, the H2S problem can only get worse.

They really need to determine the source of the oil and take appropriate action to alleviate it.

An operation to cover their a$$et$ would not surprise me at all. That is a typical lawyer tactic and there has been more than enough time for the pin stripe sharks to sink their teeth into this one. Plus, there is hardly a job in industry that doesn't have it's own health risks. So taking a survey of health problems along with employment information would be an easy way to bump some of the residents out of the settlement pool, or at least to the shallow end.

That is true. The methane content of the Deepwater Horizon was many times the normal amount for shallower wells.

If you remember seeing the underwater video feeds right around the well you would have seen wisps of material that looked a little like shredded rags floating down to the sea floor. In fact that was the methane that had become methane hydrate because of the low temperature and high pressure falling down to the bottom.

The methane, being much lighter than water, would have floated up for a while and as soon as it was converted to methane hydrate it would then be heavier than water and drift lazily back down to the bottom.

Again, I urge everyone interested to do some batholith research. Would do it, but not the sharpest one here.
It's out there, tho, I assure you, and from what I read, it may have some huge geological references here.
