Yes. I think that all signs point this. What we have been reading and the information that they have been dribbling out seems to imply that the dome is fractured. How fractured, well time will tell.

So this possibly means the dome is fractured?
This article to me seems to say one thing then the opposite. I started the link at page 2 because that is where it mainly talks about our sinkhole.
But Martin also admits the sinkhole could continue to grow for another year or two. "When is this going to end? Is it going to end correctly? My concern is about, will it happen again?" said Marylee Orr, the executive director of LEAN, the Louisiana Environmental Action Network. The group says Bayou Corne's disaster should be a warning to other communities about developing in sinkhole-prone areas.
Assumption Parish So I guess we will wait and see what new images and data they release.
The Office of Conservation and Assumption Parish Incident Command are advising the public that Fugro is flying its helicopter-borne EM survey equipment this morning, beginning with a test pass to make sure the area is clear of navigation hazards and conduct equipment calibration. That test will be followed by the EM survey flight, intended to provide information on shallow subsurface in the Bayou Corne area. The survey will be done at relatively low altitudes, but no lower than 500 feet, through mid to late afternoon. If the weather remains clear, the survey will finish today.
I do wonder if this is area is part of the mandatory evacuation area. I notice that their command post is right next to one of these wells. If you see the command post packing up & moving then I think the residence should do the same.
Now can they say that it is unsafe to live here if they are flaring gas right from under the community!?
Preliminary reports are that :
ORW 36 was perforated at 113-117 feet, and had a 4-6 foot column of gas, and had 48 PSI.
ORW 37 was perforated at 124-128 feet, and had almost a 4 foot column of gas, and had 0 PSI.
Reluctant to leave home Please note that this house is on the north side of 70 where the gas was discovered under two homes last month.
the father of two adult sons, said he has not evacuated because he has not been afraid of the sinkhole since it formed. About a month ago, however, gas started bubbling up underneath a deck in one corner of his oblong pond, Pipsair said.
Seismic monitoring had detected a sustained increase in the trend of micro-earthquake (MEQ) activity in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 over the past week, and a marked uptick in MEQs in the past day. This pattern of MEQ increase has been identified as an indicator of likely shifting and sloughing in the sinkhole and the area below it,
Awww.... how sweet! LOL! So that is what all those tremors were about. I really would love to see a video of a burp. It is not fair that they keep those events private. Did anything spew high?
