This is an idea posted at ENE-News in Boone dam item (scroll up to see about that).

Sinkholes don’t just ‘appear’. They are caused by cave-ins. Something caused the cave-in. Now what do we know geographically about what’s under the Reservoir? (Dam) [Boone dam]
G.E. built it’s reactors on a river bed, so before this reservoir was filled, we must backtrack to find the root cause. And check on any seismic activity under the dam. Also, is it releasing gases? Do they see ‘bubbles’? Bubbles would indicate gas leaking. We have bubbles in the swamps here, not good.

Case in point: Bayou Corne is nothing more than salt domes. When Texas Brine filled them with toxic chemicals, the salt/toxins ate away at the walls causing collapse.
With that said, the sinkhole took years to grow and is releasing gases, oil, toxic mix chemicals..

The BP blowout was the direct cause of the Louisiana sinkhole. She’s mic activity is constant. Lake Pontchartrain is now involved. If the sinkhole blows it will be the equivalent of Hiroshima or probably worse. I live within the detonation zone of this thing and I watch it closely. I also fear that the gas leaks are causing respiratory issues here. I’m getting out in October.”

DOWNarrowSM LA14 showed a big 2 hour long disruption just after 1 a.m. and another 2 hour long session just after 3 a.m..

This comment at Zero Hedge says they wonder what will happen to Boone Dam when all this snow melt comes down the river.

“TVA drew Boone down to below winter pool levels to take some pressure off of the sinkhole/mud geysers, so it only has to hold back something like a 145 ft. wall of water. Which is fine – until the snow pack in the mountains melts in a couple of weeks. Then you have those two rivers with fifteen miles of water in them filling up REALLY fast. The river below the Boone dam will be swollen, too. I don’t think they can just open the floodgates on Boone all the way. So Boone fills up, water migration that caused the sinkholes/mud geysers gets worse, and all of a sudden you have Boone tsunami.” . . . (more)
