APPJ: Evacuation Order Changed + News

“The area to the west of Grand Bayou along Highway 70 that was once part of the Mandatory and Voluntary Evacuation Order from the Bayou Corne Sinkhole is now removed from any Evacuation Orders, with the exception of the residential area near Bayou Corne.

The area has been reviewed and through the preponderance of evidence, the area has been deemed no longer at risk due to the Sinkhole and gas associated with its creation. Please note that the area of Sportsman’s Drive and a small portion of Crawfish Stew St. remains in the designated evacuations until these areas can be investigated to show that all risks have been eliminated from concerns due to the creation of the Bayou Corne Sinkhole and the failure of Oxy Geismar Cavern 3. . . “ (more)

What happens to nuke plants in case of a big quake? Evidently, nothing.
Idiots at DHS and FEMA think power loss / destruction at nuke plants in the event of a big New Madrid Fault earthquake is no problem!

Instead of DEQ fines, plant sees tax breaks after explosion
by Claire Taylor

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 frowny2to 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.

Now the company wants a permit to discharge water from its Vermilion Parish facility into area waterways and some residents aren’t happy.

2.1 quake in the same area – RSOE REPORT

Last 10 quakes in the area.

These are small quakes but they may be precursors to larger ones.
The 2 nuke plants are old and have miles of piping that gets brittle from the Wigner effect. Lots of info on old, brittle piping in nuke plants when you look up the recently closed San Onofre plant in California.
It was the creaky old piping that caused the public outcry.
