The Draining of Lake Pontchartrain During Katrina Steered Hurricane & D.C. Sniper Connection

This is the first I heard this. Many know the explosions at the chemical factory near New Orleans and the levee near the 9th ward that held back Lake Pontchartrain were deliberate attacks on the population of New Orleans.  Recall New Orleans was spared the hurricane path.  It was the levee breach that flooded the city.

But the Lee Malvo, aka D.C. Sniper, info is news. George Webb says some sniper victims were targeted to silence them and one was with Navy intel and knew about the bombing of the levee.

CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE CAUSING UPTICK IN MAN-MADE SINKHOLES

Construction Equipment –

“No national or government agency tracks how many man-made sinkholes appear each year across the country. From early December through April, according to a review by The Associated Press of media coverage, 39 significant sinkholes related to failing infrastructure – a rate of about one every four days – struck across the country in places such as Chicago, Los Angeles, Hoboken, New Jersey, Sioux City, Iowa, and Seattle.”

They forget to mention giant collapsed salt domes like at Bayou Corne and WIPP.

People need to be prepared with some food stuffs for several days even if you don’t live next to a dam or a giant sinkhole. It’s just common sense.

BP Screws Up Alaska Again

BP Races to Contain North Slope Well After Finding Leaks

A well operated by BP Exploration Alaska Inc. on Alaska’s frigid North Slope is no longer spraying crude oil after leaks were discovered Friday morning.

The well, located in the Greater Prudhoe Bay area, was venting gas, which caused a spray of crude oil to impact the well pad. By Sunday afternoon in Alaska, that had been stopped. A second leak had been reduced but was still emitting gas, the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation said in a statement. Well pressure was monitored throughout the night and excess pressure was bled off to keep it within a safe range. . . .

Infrastructure Issue and the Sinkhole Saga + News

We are  covering a dam about-to-fail story in California on the FC blog. There have been many stories in the news since about the problems looming nationwide from aged, crumbling infrastructure.
One thing there popping up is info on weathered rock being more brittle than deep, protected rock.

We wonder if these salt dome storage caverns’ age has anything to do with their integrity.

We also wonder why inexpensive camera drones aren’t used for flying over Lake FUBAR to inspect it.
