On Flaming Holes Opening in the Ground

The Watchers
Fire erupting from cracks in the ground, Andhra Pradesh, India

Recently we had NEWS on this – Mysterious burning hole with flames shooting out of it in Midway, Arkansas

Followers of this blog know how many active and abandoned wells dot the countryside in Louisiana. Many abandoned wells serve a second life as storage pits for all sorts of oil waste, toxic materials waste and sometimes radioactive waste. Plus salt domes hold massive amounts of combustible gasses.

What if a “flaming hole” opens up too close to a butane cavern? Or next to a natural gas pipeline? Many facilities are out in swampland without people around to see if the ground is shooting flames.

  1. NOTE – we added “recent comments” column to the left sidebar
    < – – –
    so you can see if anyone posted here … FC

  2. Is this official or unofficial? “Many abandoned wells serve a second life as storage pits for all sorts of oil waste, toxic materials waste and sometimes radioactive waste”. Do they lie and tell people they are drilling for oil when they are injecting toxic or rad waste?
