Basically all the major news outlets will have these trees falling over by tonight. Let’s hope some of them delve into the story to get past the “Lake” part of Lake FUBAR and get to the “FUBAR” part. The news story is in the compromised cavern contents and the immeasurable threat that poses to the state, the country and possibly, the continent.

  1. Finally, Lake Fubar is getting some “respect”. As you have shown, it could happen anywhere, at anytime and people’s lives, livelihood, and future is at grave risk. After viewing this AM, I couldn’t imagine who was risking their lives standing so near, on the edge of this catastrophe…but thankfully they did. The trees, all the trees have disappeared, and yet those “fools” keep playing with it. All the trees that have died and/or are dying, slipping downwards into (“whats the estimated depth now?”) bottomless chasm. After watching this from the beginning, it grows wider each day. I think the reason they don’t offer valid explanation, is because they are hoping it will stop itself. (Surely, it can’t swallow the whole of Louisiana?) The berm roads are a joke as is the Natural Resources Dept and politicians who sit on their duffs and ignore this hole. Maybe they are afraid they if they don’t pay attention it will go away…NOT! Now we are seeing the world wake up to this issue. And thankfully, LA Sinkhole has it all documented. Back up your files offsite, so the TPTB can’t destroy all your work! Sorry for the long-winded post. Keep up the great work!

  2. This might not be so good. If you’re a conspiracy theorist you might see this as an opportuity for something to happen that is man made and be blamed as a naturally occurring event. Not good news at all.

  3. Take a look at all the trees coming down in 2009 in Polk County in East Tennessee.
    Polk County Tennessee Rockslide Nearly Kills Road Crew

    I-40 West, North Carolina-Tennessee Border
    This happen in Aug 2013

    I think this happen in 2009 or 2010 along I-40 road.
