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…

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.”

Dear DNR,

  • When is the helicorder at LA10-01 going to be fixed?
  • What is going on at the collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne? The helicorders are all screaming this weekend.
  • Why do you allow Nanometrics in Canada to adjust the helicorders at the collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne to an unreadable setting?
  • When are you giving the public an update about the cap rock at the cavern?
  • What are the cavern floor measurements now?
  • When are you going to do an aerial video for the public to see the status of the collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne?
  • What has happened at the Crosstex venue with their construction recently announced?
  • Is it wise to allow the storage of huge amounts of butane next to this unstable collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne?
  • What amount of butane is at the Crosstex facility now? There hasn’t been a press release from them since the middle of this month.
  • Why was the headquarters trailer moved and why was the access road to restricted?
  • How is DNR and DEQ protecting the aquifer from Bayou Corne caverns’ pollution?
