At first glance it looks like the helicorders are ringing like church bells because Afghanistan had a big earthquake earlier today (M7.5 – USGS Report). But they were going off way before that happened!
Here’s how bad it is tonight:

UPDATED – That story about the St. Louis dump fire and nuke waste has this added item:
Earlier report (from The Watchers) seems wrong.
Torrential rainstorms battered Louisiana on Sunday, leaving thousands without power, after pounding southeastern Texas as the remnants of Hurricane Patricia converged with a second storm.
The heaviest band of rain moved over the Gulf of Mexico, triggering coastal flood warnings and flash flood watches in southwest Louisiana and soaking New Orleans, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Wow! That was scary! Our blog was suspended with no reason given. After complaining it is finally back.
O.K. – for that courtesy, I will say for the record, maybe a comapny
that dumps radioactive waste in a ditch by the road and it explodes and a US highway is closed for 140 miles for (ahem) unrelated reasons they are NOT reckless. Or even mishandling nuke waste. Maybe that’s the way it is ALL handled by all the cleverly named toxic waste handlers.
Open trench nuke dumpers, US Ecology have a location at 6735 Airline Highway, Baton Rouge.
ENE-News: “Nuclear fire” erupts at radioactive facility near major US city — Footage shows underground explosions, massive smoke plumes — AP: “Unknown amount of radioactive waste burned” — EPA sends emergency radiological team — Residents: “We were flat out lied to… Why didn’t they evacuate the town?” (VIDEO)

RECKLESS, RECKLESS, F-UPS!
They can’t even put water on the fire because it will cause more explosions. Good thing the dump is in a dry, dry desert and not swampy, bayou-infused land next to Baton Rouge! Imagine an explosion and chain-reaction fire there! Talk about water hitting the barely-buried drums!
There’s a big underground fire approaching a nuke dump next to St. Louis going on now too! Do you see it in the news? No!

Oh, and there’s not a common occurrence of heavy torrents of rain around swampy Baton Rouge is there?
ENE-News – EPA data shows radiation spike in major US city soon after explosions at nuclear waste facility nearby — AP: Drums of buried waste were blasted over site’s fence; Large crater reported — Emergency Official: US gov’t brought in “resources I’ve never even seen before, it was amazing” (VIDEO)
“By the mid 1940s, Mallinckrodt Chemical Works had run out of space to store the radioactive waste left behind, so in 1946 they began to ship the leftovers to a relatively underpopulated area north of St Louis, next to a creek by the name of Coldwater. It was here that approximately 250,000 barrels of radioactive material were dumped in shallow pits and exposed to the elements. . . . “
” . . . concerns disappeared after the Government and Mallinckrodt said the wastes were ‘not radioactive or otherwise dangerous’. “
More Methane Bubbles Up off Oregon and Washington Coasts
Due to rising sea temperatures below surface, more methane bubbles up off Oregon and Washington coasts. Scientists explained that the warming now affects depths where frozen pockets of the gas can morph into a powerful source of greenhouse gas.
Is the frozen giant lake of gas under the Gulf of Mexico that is bubbling up in Lake FUBAR also a concern?
