Hi Rezlooper, Have you heard about the latest concerns here in Louisiana? First of all, BP technicians/scientists are researching/investigating an
ancient volcano that is located in the the Gulf Of Mexico, not all that far from New Orleans. They say they are concerned over seismic activity in the
area. Another volcano has been identified in the Gulf near Texas. What I am wondering about is have BP Oil folks already been "fiddling" with said
volcanoes? Have their drilling operations taken place in or around those volcanoes and possibly stirred up seismic activity? Of course, if that is the
case, we probably woulnd't get straight talk relevant to it.
Today, hubby and I heard 2 loud "booms" and have n't been able to discern what they were. I hope they aren't related to those booms folks hear before
an earthquake occurrs. I have lived in Louisiana for almost 30 years now and I do feel like earthquakes have been on the increase here. I feel like
fracking does play a factor in some of these. Had lots of fracking near our prior home here and you could literally feel the ground vibrate constantly
from all the drilling. Lots of beautiful land here is being ruined.
There are 2 sinkholes now in Louisiana and of course, Bayou Corne continues to grow. Erin Brochovich, (sp)? has visited the area and has gone on
record saying that the area is dangerous, explosions could occur, that folks should leave the area and that Texas Brine should give residents
financial aid to do so...that they should be held accountable. Governor Bobby Jindahl has finally visited the area as well. Folks in the area have
been noticing an uptick in siesmic activity near Bayou Corne and out laying areas as well. Could this be related to the sinkholes and area
The problems here in Louisiana continue relevant to fracking issues, quakes, sinkholes and even Camp Minden. The mess at the Camp is still ongoing,
with over 3 million pounds of explosive still to be delt with and the company involved fudging the process.
I'll try and find links relevant to some of what I have mentioned. I think one was ene.news and rumormillnews and other sites as well. Our local news
had video of Erin but left out the part where she mentioned the danger of explosions. News was local. ksla.com. Will try and get back to you with more
on all of this. Take care and Blessings to you Rez.
I do agree with you. I feel like Louisiana and more specifically, the New Madrid could be the sleeping giant that is finally waking up for whatever
reasons...natural or otherwise. The volcano in the Gulf that is being scrutinized....can't help cause one to wonder, also. If problems occur from
that....should the volcano stir, one can only worry/wonder where that could lead in regards to the New Madrid and its awakening.??
Some folks say it is silly to worry about earthquakes as they are out of our control anyhow. It is true to an extent...yet, it is exceedingly
difficult to not be concerned somewhat. I have 4 generations of family in the area. Should the unthinkable happen, I can't imagine the horror, the
loss not to just my family but to thousands of other folks as well. The thing that really bothers me is what if the activities of man/industry could
possibly set off such events? I can't help but question the folly of fracking taking place in/around volcanoes. Is it wise to "poke the bear" so to
speak, to possibly awaken the sleeping giant? Putting tons of water and pressure into shale/plates of rock.... is that wise? I have read somewhere
that there are plans to do fracking into Yellowstone as well. I lived there recently also and that area is very seismically active as well. Seems
unwise to tamper with such areas and not be able to be totally sure of the outcome/results. So much power in Mother Nature and to fiddle with same,
one has to wonder if that is looking for trouble...seems like taking thoser kinds of chances are not prudent regardless. Thanx for listening.
