Large Seismic Ding at 1 A.M. Saturday & Weekend News

SATURDAY

I think the bigger jump on the monitors is on the SE corner of Lake FUBAR next to the incredible amount of butane.

LA21 shows the “Ding” at 1:10 a.m.  The parish blog says they are keeping the Code 2 status.

Oddity – 1 a.m. seems to be prime time for Lake FUBAR to turn into an underwater disco. Check out previous headlines here with “1 a.m. ” in the title!

8:30 p.m. Sat. eve –  
6.0 quake out in the Atlantic - between Jamaica and Africa <  MAP.
  It showed up as fluid movement at 8:45 p.m. at Lake FUBAR – seen on LA18 helicorder.

UPDATE

The 6.0 figure comes from USGS but RSOE says it was 6.6 plus there were 2 big ones next to it. All late Sat. at 10:28 except the 5.7 was at 8:28.  If they all went off at 28 min. after the hour … were they man-made/oil drilling?

Reports – 6.6, 5.7, 5.6

Scientists discover why the Appalachian mountain chain bends

If you took a bird’s-eye view of the Appalachian mountain chain, you could pretty much trace a 1,500-mile straight line from Newfoundland to Alabama, notes Nature World News.

Except, that is, for a little squiggle in New York and Pennsylvania. So what on earth could make a mountain chain bend like that? Geologists think they’ve figured out the answer, and it’s not so much “on earth” as “in earth”—namely, an underground volcanic rock about 60 miles by 280 miles in dimension. . . .

Vermilion Parish – Instead of DEQ fines, plant sees tax breaks after explosion

Multi-Chem, a Halliburton-owned business that blends chemicals for oilfield production, including fracking, paid no state environmental fines when its New Iberia plant exploded in 2011.

Instead, the company received an expedited environmental permit to build a new plant in Vermilion Parish without public notice or a public hearing and was granted $1.8 million in state property tax exemptions over a 10-year period to build the new plant. . . .

. . . .  DEQ scheduled a public hearing for 6 p.m. Aug. 14 at the North Vermilion High School cafeteria, 11609 La. Highway 699, Maurice.

Wed. night after 10:30 p.m. a long slosh is seen on LA10-03. And LA17-02

 LA12 shows it plus a BIG SLOSH before at 9 p.m. (the start of the event??) … LA11 shows it just slightly. . .and it shows up at  LA18  , LA14,

No slosh at see 17-01, LA-21, LA19  (indicating it is from a local source at Lake FUBAR).    heli_button

No slosh at LA10-01 but a mystery 8 minute outage at 10:22.

You can see on this map the SLOSHING is all next to the new-new south berm:

The AdvocateVideo: Water quality advocates ‘Flood Into Baton Rouge’

(June 26) WWLTV – Frustrations continue to rise over Bayou Corne sinkhole

BAYOU CORNE — Frustration continues at the Bayou Corne sinkhole despite assurances from parish officials as well as the company that operated the collapsed underground salt dome cavern.

“Texas Brine indicated to the community that they should be able to remove all gas by the end of the year,” said John Boudreaux, director of the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. “I would say that it’s probably their plan, but I don’t believe that can happen”.

2.7 quake at Yellville, Arkansas

Study shows how drilling wastewater causes quakes

A new study explains how just four wells forcing massive amounts of drilling wastewater into the ground are probably shaking up Oklahoma.

Those wells seem to have triggered more than 100 small-to-medium earthquakes in the past five years, according to a study published Thursday by the journal Science. Many of the quakes were much farther away from the wells than expected.

Combined, those wells daily pour more than 5 million gallons of water a mile or two underground into rock formations, the study found. That buildup of fluid creates more pressure that “has to go somewhere,” said study lead author Cornell University seismologist Katie Keranen. . .

Repost: Louisiana Sinkhole Collapses Into Aquifer: ‘Active Volcanic + Geothermal’

By Susan Duclos

 New reports on the Louisiana Bayou Corne sinkhole show that it has collapsed into the Aquifer, making this ever expanding sinkhole an issue not just for the residents of Bayou Corne, but for the entire region as polluted water now being flowing through what is normally clean aquifer water.

 
The video below not only shows the activity being seen, but splits the screen with the local meeting held where officials attempt to explain and answer questions from understandably concerned citizens. . . .

Figuring out Texas Brine’s Insane Logic

It is looking more and more like the idea of the berm roads build project is more about resource extraction (gas) than it is about stopping water pollution from the collapsed salt dome at Bayou Corne, aka Lake FUBAR.

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:

The AdvocateAssumption sinkhole claims another patch of earth

[snip] ” . . .  Scientists have Daffy_Duckdescribed the connection between the sinkhole and the broken cavern as a U-shape. 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. . . .”
