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


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.


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.

A jump on the helicorders at 12:06 a.m. and at 6:10 a.m. – seen on LA12.

  1. Perhaps Crosstex may hold the key to the 1am correlation. You noted earlier that Butane levels increased and from what I saw, in both Wells 1&2. Given LA 21 location it may be that fractures/variation in substrates exist that connect Well 2 to LA 21. So perhaps either Crosstex add the Butane in the dead of night to avoid prying eyes or undertake other relatively ad hoc activity (I assume regular maintenance or pressure testing would show a regular pattern) at around 1am. There may even be another company causing interference at that time, but I do not know the area at all to even speculate on possibilities.

  2. I was looking at the 2015 America the Beautiful Quarter Designs they have for Louisiana and North Carolina.
    Here is the review board design pictures that has been send in.
    I can’t say if the people have a say in this or not.
    Homestead National Monument is for Nebraska
    Kisatchie State Park is for Louisiana.
    Blue Ridge Parkway is for North Carolina
    Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is for Delaware
    Saratoga National Historical Park is for New York

      • I did but I gave them to my brother I found in my change about a week a-go a penny that was not stamp and a 1943 steel penny that did not have the four on it.

  3. Interesting, volcano mound causes mountain chain to bend. Wonder if the N. American craton is stuck on a volcanic bulge coming up into the crust from the mantle??

    And what happens when the sliding start?? And what happens to the built up pressure? Would not be surprised if there are a lot of those little ‘objects’ affecting earth’s crustal movements..or lack of movement. And when it it goes big. Now on thinking of a mud volcano… it the opposite? And sliding crust faster? Just a dumb comment, but interesting..
