All About Limnic Eruptions

  1. All three of the LA-10 recorders are showing movement.
    Something big is happen at the sinkhole it look like the bottom of the sinkhole drop out of it.

    There is a line of storm in or near the swamp sinkhole but the bottom LA-10 recorders would not show that.

    Is the land giving-way where the three sinkholes recorders are at, the LA-10s recorders are they sinking into the sinkhole ?

    If so you need to turn down LA-14 record so people can’t see it happening.
