The Advocate – State: Proposed salt dome caverns exceed safety standards, too far from Bayou Corne sinkhole to pose risk
“Nearly six years after the catastrophic failure of a salt mine caused the Bayou Corne sinkhole, a company is planning two new massive mines in the same underground deposit in Assumption Parish.
The recently approved permit is the first for the Napoleonville Salt Dome since the Louisiana Office of Conservation halted new mining in the area and adopted safety regulations in reaction to the sinkhole disaster that attracted worldwide headlines, state officials said. . . . (more)“
“The June 2018 forecast of the size of the hypoxic zone also known as the ‘dead zone’ in the northern Gulf of Mexico for late July 2018 is that it will cover 17 250 km (6,660 mi) of the bottom of the continental shelf off Louisiana and Texas. The 95% confidence interval is that it will be between 14 628 and 19 727 km (5 648 and 7 617 mi). While there are more than 500 dead zones around the world, the northern Gulf of Mexico dead zone is the second largest human-caused coastal hypoxic area in the world.
Hypoxia, or low oxygen, is an environmental phenomenon where the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the water column decreases to a level that can no longer support living aquatic organisms “. . . (more)
“The earthquake struck in the Gulf of Mexico about 120 miles southeast of Grand Isle, or about 160 miles southeast of New Orleans just before noon Sunday.
The National Weather Service office in Slidell said there is no tsunami threat from this earthquake.”

WAFB – Despite Lack of Headlines, Louisiana In Earthquake Zone
No Adventure blog – “The largest Earthquake recorded in Louisiana was centered about 60 miles west of New Orleans and awakened many people throughout eastern Louisiana at about 6:17 a.m. on October 19, 1930. Maximum intensity reached VI at Napoleonville, where the entire congregation rushed from a church, as the entire building rocked noticeably. Intensity V effects were noticed at Allemands, Donaldsonville, Franklin, Morgan City, and White Castle, where small objects overturned, trees and bushes were shaken, and plaster cracked.”
It seems the USGS has scrubbed old articles on the event and their search engine won’t give any info at all on the earthquake.
Let’s compare this quake location to the old Deepwater Horizon episode – – –

Cynthia: Flesh-Eating Synthetic Bacteria that has Gone Wild
2016 article by Jean Perie
“The reports about tests on human beings that are being routinely carried out by certain Western corporations have become a sort of a trend these days.
Among others, one can recall the story about the long struggle between civil authorities of various states and the US chemical giant Monsanto provoked by research in the potential dangers of GMO products, and the Monsanto-produced herbicide Roundup in particular. The actual damage inflicted on the agricultural business of various states is yet to be carefully assessed, but even at this stage it safe to say that Monsanto’s expansion into India and surrounding markets resulted in deaths of thousands of people.
However, in the nearest future, the planet could face yet another “monster” that was bred deep inside US corporate laboratories. We are talking about the first synthetic bacteria – Cynthia, created “to combat oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico” which, according to the various reports that are often ignored by the corporate media, has mutated and has started attacking animals and humans. Now this highly lethal microorganism is on its way to Europe.”
“Cynthia is the brainchild of the J. Craig Venter Institute — which was engaged in genetic engineering experiments since the beginning of the 21st century — and Synthetic Genomics Inc, and was created and funded directly by BP. It was believed that Cynthia feeds on oil, but it turns out now that it is equally willing to consume all forms of organic life as well. . . . “
