“Pump water into oil wells, causing fracturing along a fault line… ADD IN a massive explosion at the base of a seismically prone area..
Induce a large earthquake, sink a river valley … and have it all attributed to ‘natural causes’.“

Texas Brine has a report that isn’t 10 days old. From Jan. 26. Other reports dated the same -
We also found not too ancient results from contractors Shaw is using. Here are some -
We are SURE, since last night’s meeting was science oriented these results (known all this time to DNR and DHH) were discussed with residents.
Seismic Monitors going off. Tremors in the cavern unless they are doing thumper truck before 6 a.m. CST.
LA03, LA06 and others turned off . . . LA03 went offline in the afternoon Jan. 28th . . . What’s up with the LIVE MONITORING Texas Brine is mandated to provide?
MORE here later . . .

100 feet deep!
One of the most important US sport is baseball. Well, construction at Birmingham’s $64 million baseball stadium is slowed down by the recent discovery of an at least 100-feet deep sinkhole at the entrance to the sports facility. . . .
“Confronting the consultants were not only people worrying about what the seismic waves might do to their properties but also some audience members’ expressions of continuing frustration and skepticism stemming from the nearly six-month evacuation ordered just after the sinkhole erupted Aug. 3 in northern Assumption Parish swampland near Bayou Corne.”
WGMB – Unanswered questions, frustrations remain after Bayou Corne community meeting < with Video
“We’ve been out of our homes for six months now. We are looking for some realistic answers. We are getting tired of hearing all the technical jargon,” Kenny Simoneaux, Bayou Corne resident, shouted.
This report answers a the question ‘how do they do seismic monitoring over the water?’.
“Bayou Corne residents can expect to see vibrator trucks and air guns (equipment attached to flat bottom boats) in the area. Workers will use them to send vibrations in to the ground that will be picked up on measuring equipment around the area.”
REMINDER: “A second meeting is scheduled for February 6 at 6:00 pm at the Assumption Community Center. The meeting will only be state and local officials answering questions.”
MORE on the meeting when it appears . . .
January 30, 2013 @ 6:00 p.m. Assumption Parish Community Center This public meeting will consist of Texas Brine officials providing information specific to their activities.
Severe weather is missing Assumption Parish but the area had freakish high temps. At the sinkhole they have light rain with stormy weather predicted for tomorrow. The weather link is on the sidebar. →
Ascension Parish is still struggling with high water. Watching that to see if it affects Bayou Corne. Parish MAP. Elevation MAP.
The last ‘update’ from Texas Brine was 10 days ago. Sure. No news in ten days.
Bridgeline (pipeline co.) announces it “will be pigging between Henry Hub Compressor station and Tally Ho Junction, January 30, 2013. Bridgeline will work with interconnecting parties to batch gas during the pigging operations in an effort to limit the need for shipper allocations.” . . . . just north of Napoleonville. Sec. 205 on this MAP. It may be unrelated to Lake FUBAR. Just FYI.
