This looks new (!!) – Sinkhole near Bayou Corne sucks down another patch of earth

BAYOU CORNE, Louisiana — The sinkhole near Bayou Corne sucked down another patch of earth as Texas Brine Co. released pressure again from its failed salt dome cavern near the 29-acre swampland sinkhole in Assumption Parish.

Officials say the edge collapse, or slough-in, came five days after six trees in the same area were pulled down into the hole’s watery depths. Texas Brine was releasing pressure from the cavern around the same time. . . .

. . .  it is after the trees falling in and is the same event that was on the Mar. 31 video:

Rock moves down through the  shattered  earth under the sinkhole and into the 5,000-foot-deep breach near the cavern’s bottom inside the cavity and then up the cavern toward its roof. . . .”

highly-recommendedAbyss of Uncertainty: Germany’s Homemade Nuclear Waste Disaster  Spiegal online, By Michael Fröhlingsdorf, Udo Ludwig and Alfred Weinzier, 21 Feb 13,   Some 126,000 barrels of nuclear waste have been dumped in the Asse II salt mine over the last 50 years. German politicians are pushing for a law promising their removal. But the safety, technical and financial hurdles are enormous, and experts warn that removal is more dangerous than leaving them put……


Germany’s Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) has been responsible for Asse since 2009. This is an agency that was originally founded to monitor things such as the safety of workers in nuclear research facilities. In early 2010, the federal government ordered the BfS to assess whether the radioactive waste in the Asse mine can be retrieved. The agency estimated that it would take three years to prepare the project. Most recently, the BfS said it…

Bubble Update From Conservation


Unrelated fer sure (sarc) ….

Hey, look! Acadian Gas is on the job! Last update from them:


This Advocate article makes it sound like Acadian Gas had nothing at all to do with the bubbling discovery. They put out an “update” for Feb. 24 tonight. No mention of bubbles.


At about 4:20 p.m. Wed. all of the helicorders went out for about a half hour. What happened? LA18 shows it well.

DNR  put out an inspection reportCrosstex has a 2 day old “update” . . .

Bayou Corne/Grand Bayou Response Activity

Following confirmation of the new bubble site on Grand Bayou, north of its crossing of La. 70, Assumption Parish Incident Command and the coordinated state agencies have made initial investigations and begun taking action to ascertain the source, including determination of whether scientific evidence supports the likely assumption that it is linked to the gas released by the failure of Texas Brine’s Oxy Geismar 3 cavern, and to ensure public safety.

The bubbling is occurring directly above the area where Acadian Gas recently drilled a horizontal boring under the Bayou as part of its effort to re-route a pipeline to replace pipeline capacity lost when the sinkhole formed. Acadian has already tested its two existing pipelines in service at the same crossing, and found no indication of leaks.
The Office of Conservation and its contracted agent CB&I have taken…

ABC – Oil Spill Closes Part of Miss. River in Louisiana

The Coast Guard says a 65-mile stretch of the Mississippi River is closed until further notice while crews clean up oil from a barge that hit a towboat between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

The collision happened Saturday afternoon near Vacherie (VASH-uh-ree), 47 miles west of New Orleans. In nearby St. Charles Parish, officials say public drinking water intakes on the river are closed as a precaution. . . .

So this happened Saturday afternoon and the news people withheld the story until MONDAY??
