  1. It look like a cave-in on LA-21 recorder on 09/09/2014 (00) last night at 12:12 am CDT time that 05:12 UTC time.
    It did not show up on the three Arkansas recorders.
    Just where is LA-21 recorder at, its where Oxy -2 cavern is at.
    LA-21 is set so low I don’t see how it can pick up anything.
    If something break off in that cavern it got a very, very long way down to fall to the bottom.
    I am glad it’s filled up with salt water for now.

    • and did you see before LA21 did that … around 10 p.m. the heli went off line…. I really wonder id sometimes things happen during those ‘blank’ spots….

    • at 8;40 p.m. Mon. night LA12 has a slight slosh.
      This fluid movement doesn’t happen by itself.
      Maybe it is from OK quakes or from Lake FUBAR itself.

  2. I think their having a big problem at the sinkhole right now and some of those cravens.
    Is Napoleonville Salt Dome began to break apart ?

  3. The fact they are shoving a fast one on the parish is a giveaway! Things are not going well..Texas Brine is running out of money..cant pay the public or private bills they owe. So now they hope to save money on dumping waste into the sinkhole. What does EPA say about THAT. We, private citizens, would be in federal prison in a heart beat.

    DAs are very unhappy today. Might be the 10 inches of rain and the flooding..or something else.

    • This (luckily) got found out and many should attend that ‘secret’ meeting. Dirty dogs DEQ are at a new low!
      That paragraph at the end of the post is from a local Paul Revere.

    • you would think they would at least say something about helis being repaired or something.
      No follow up to that smell story either!

  4. Out of sight, out of mind. No news is good news. (NOT). What can one say about an obserd, out of control situation? (LOOK OUT!) ??? The aquifer it broke into around the 4th of July is an agricultural aquifer used to water farmland throughout the state of Louisiana. A wonderful way for gases to travel great distances. Who knows how long before something happens somewhere. All that I know is that time is ticking and has been for a very long time now.

    • And why do they get to slip past the state Emergency Declaration orders so much?
      And when did they ever pay the parish back for all the costs? … they were billed! And why didn’t the bill collector go get the arrears?
      You bet if someone doesn’t pay a parking ticket they can’t let it go for a year or two. They would have their car towed!
