More than 2 years later, sinkhole evacuation eased

BAYOU CORNE — After more than two years, the mandatory evacuation order for people living near an Assumption Parish sinkhole has eased for some in the area.
The parish policy jury said Thursday that an area east of Grand Bayou along Highway 70 has been re-designated to a voluntary evacuation zone, rather than a mandatory one…

” . . .  They added it is believed all of the gas has been removed from the area. They will continued to investigate and monitor the area to confirm that the gas is depleted. . . . “

The Watchers – Geophysicists challenge traditional theory underlying the origin of mid-plate volcanoes

” [scientists] look at how a layer beneath the Earth’s crust may be responsible for volcanic eruptions.
The discovery challenges conventional thought that volcanoes are caused when plates that make up the planet’s crust shift and release heat.
Instead of coming from deep within the interior of the planet, the responsibility is closer to the surface, about 80 kilometers to 200 kilometers deep — a layer above the Earth’s mantle, known as the asthenosphere.”

Solar Storm Friday, Iceland Crater Unstable (?)

Solar Storms Sending Biggest Threats to Earth Today and Tomorrow

Global positioning system and radio transmissions may be degraded through tomorrow as two solar eruptions strike Earth and affect its magnetic field.

The U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center is tracking two two coronal mass ejections, “huge expulsions of magnetic field and plasma” that shot out of an area near the center of the sun’s disc.

“Essentially the sun just shot out a magnet and it is about to interact with another magnet, Earth’s magnet,” William Murtagh, program coordinator of the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center, said yesterday. When the ejections reach Earth, they will touch off geomagnetic storms that are forecast to last at least until tomorrow. . . .

Will this solar storm affect helicords’ display? Will anyone provide backup observation (like going to Lake FUBAR and looking at it)?    heli_button

At 4 a.m. Lake FUBAR got the grumbles. we doubt it is cultural noise as  work doesn’t usually start there before sun up.

We should pay attention to the weather now as storms from the east close in. Extra rain means extra weight on fragile cavern walls in Lake FUBAR!

ICELAND –  “It Will Be Unlike Anything Ever Seen in Recorded History”

►”Scientists are now gravely concerned that the crater floor will soon collapse into a miles deep underground cavern filled with boiling white hot magma.

►”There’s 1 trillion gallons of water in the ice in Bardabunga crater.

►”When that falls into a lake of magma it will instantly flash into steam expanding 600 times in volume.

►”The magma, suddenly no longer contained by the crater floor and 1 trillion gallons of water will act like a shaken soft drink can when the top is popped.

“It will be an event unlike anything ever seen in recorded history.

Huge Crack Opens in Earth Near Hermosillo – Coast of Mexico

It is 26 feet deep and over 1/2 mile long!

RSOE Report -

Video footage has emerged of a kilometre-long crack thought to have been triggered by an underground stream in northwest Mexico. The eight-metre (26ft) deep trench opened up last week and severed Highway 26 between Hermosillo and the coast. Captured by Hermosillo Desde El Cielo, the footage was shot by a drone flying along the length of the trench, which is up to five metres (16ft) across. Farm workers and vehicles have been forced to go around the area due to the unstable ground. Another crack was reported to have opened near Highway 4 in the same area. Geological investigations are under way into the cause of the crack, according to El Imparcial newspaper. The civil protection unit said the fissure could have been triggered by an earthquake last Sunday. The newspaper added that an investigation found that farmers in the area had built up a levee to contain rainwater which had begun to leak, causing an underground stream which undermined the earth above it until it collapsed.

Largest methane seep in the world found off the eastern coast

This is from June – (sorry we missed it!)

From Jim Lee’s ResoNation

Largest methane seep in the world found off the eastern coast of U.S..

June 19, 2013 – SOUTH CAROLINA – On the seafloor just off of the U.S. East Coast lies a barely known world, explorations of which bring continual surprises. As recently as the mid-2000s, practically zero methane seeps — spots on the seafloor where gas leaks from the Earth’s crust — were thought to exist off the East Coast; while one had been reported more than a decade ago, it was thought to be one of a kind. But in the past two years, additional studies have revealed a host of new areas of seafloor rich in seeps. . . .
