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)

We are real sure “through the preponderance of evidence” is a legal phrase.

  1. I heard that Cajun restaurants don’t bother with a menu, they just use a Bayou Corne street map. Sorry, couldn’t resist. They were named in happier times, I remember the song ‘In the shade of the old apple tree’ Crawdats wus bitin my toes,

    • I figure some of those people in Florida with the new swamp water (Guacamole algae) will come to Bayou Corne for greener pastures 🙂

      • Here in NZ we have a complete ban on shellfish/filter feeder harvesting during algal blooms as they are lethal.

      • I would imagine Florida has the same.
        I know New York monitors the water and occasionally bans oyster gathering.

        I think the smell is driving them nuts and beach front motels hit hard as this is a big holiday weekend in the USA.
