NEWS! APPJ Posts Mar. 3 Sinkhole Survey. Is Mini-Me Sinkhole Forming???

Finally some NEWS!

APPJ blog – 11:05 a.m. Sinkhole Depth Survey, February 2016

The survey [PDF]

The revised date on the survey is Mar. 3 and the profile is from Feb.

floodThe flooding continues – see posts below for info links

Reader, Walter thinks a second sinkhole is forming. It sure looks like it!

Huge BOOM at Lake FUBAR After 1 A.M.

As Walter said, “What fell down?”.

LA18 shows it.

Quake Watch’s LA18 chart shows it (at 7:07 A.M. UTC). Same event.

So does LA 10-01

NOTE: On the Yellowstone blog, YS watcher, Mary Greeley says the USGS is turning the helicorders there on teeny tiny setting. – F.C.

Dear Texas Brine, Where are the Status Reports on Your Collapsed Salt Dome in Napoleonville?

Why is all the live monitoring at Lake FUBAR being withheld from the public?

You haven’t put out a “response” since January.

There is live GPS data on all kinds of coordinates and land levels all over Assumption Parish. This data is supposed to public. The helicorders are supposed to be working and half of them are dead or giving out mish-mash. No one has even tended to them (in months!) to even temporarily fix them. The CORS911 system (with LSU help) is supposed to keep giving live GPS data. Acknowledging the big public hazard from Lake FUBAR they said “the CORS911 sentinels will continue to provide the real-time hazard-monitoring solutions needed to support this response for as long as necessary.”

Everything in the caverns is falling to pieces and self-generating quakes are large and frequent so, yeah, CORS911 data is still necessary.

Where’s the info from Sandia Labs, UC Berkeley, JPL, USGS and all the big-shots who we know are watching Lake FUBAR.

Where’s the satellite imagery? Where’s the fly-over photos? Where are still photos?

Keith M. sent this document in
CORS911: Real-Time Subsidence Monitoring of the Napoleonville Salt Dome Sinkhole Using GPS (July 2013)

It is now on the Documents page.
Here’s a Q & A on the 2013 CORS report –
http://www.ngs.noaa.gov/heightmod/2013HeightModNOTESJuly.pdf

But it is from 2013. Then they ran out of money (LSU).

They are supposed to be keeping the CORS911 thing going….

“In May 2013 a commission of scientists, response agents, and stakeholders concluded that subsidence monitoring programs were essential for ensuring public safety [LADNR, 2013b]. The CORS911 system, in coordination with the other monitoring platforms, is a key resource for these objectives. After broader attention to the sinkhole wanes, the CORS911 sentinels will continue to provide the real-time hazard-monitoring solutions needed to support this response for as long as necessary.

Gas-charged fluids creating seismicity associated with a Louisiana sinkhole (2014)

“Natural earthquakes and nuclear explosions produce seismic waves that register on seismic monitoring networks around the globe, allowing the scientific community to pinpoint the location of the events. In order to distinguish seismic waves produced by a variety of activities – from traffic to mining to explosions – scientists study the seismic waves generated by as many types of events as possible. ”

What the heck??  Heli_ANI

LA-11 shows the 2 big seismic events at 9 a.m. and after 11 a.m this morning. The each lasted over half an hour.

At 5:54 p.m. CST there was a big quake off the coast of Chile – 7.9M. 8.3 Report & MAP.

Then the helicorders came back on (sometime after 7:40 p.m. EST) showing bells ringing after this mega-quake in Chile.

We Told Ya So!

The Advocate Assumption jurors say no to sinkhole discharge into Grand Bayou, citing environmental concerns, but state officials worried about catastrophic levee failure

“. . . . Tom Killeen, DEQ Inspection Division administrator, described the implications of a catastrophic levee failure: As much as 150 million gallons of sinkhole water — possibly mixed with saltier water from the sinkhole’s depths — would rush into the swamp if a breach allowed up to 3 feet of water to flow out.

The primary bowl of the sinkhole is about 31 acres, but the series of containment levees cut through the swamps south of La. 70 contain a total of 117 acres, Texas Brine has said. . .  “

story + map –  http://theadvocate.com/news/13402558-123/assumption-jurors-say-no-to

 “In the June 3 letter to DEQ, Martin, the Texas Brine vice president, raised reusing sinkhole water for salt dome mining but wrote then the company was talking with an unnamed customer about the water’s suitability.”

“Police Jury President Martin “Marty” Triche told Killeen jurors favored Texas Brine finding another method of disposing of the water, such as through a pipeline to injection wells, instead of discharging into the bayous with monitoring but no treatment.”

The more recent sinkhole photos from On Wings of Care show the area much better than graphics used by many media outlets.

Lots of fluid movement at 6 a.m. at LA-12.

Heads up, residents who were in court over Texas Brine –
The Advocate[East Baton Rouge]Fired Baton Rouge Parish Attorney Mary Roper issued misdemeanor summons

“The investigators discovered three email accounts belonging to attorneys for the Parish Attorney’s Office that were illegally accessed more than 40 times, he said. Detectives determined the illegal access originated from a home IP address belonging to Roper.

Investigators also uncovered evidence indicating use of Roper’s personal computer to illegally access the Parish Attorney’s Office email system through a proxy service designed to mask the user’s actions and location, Manale said.”

Big solar storm today – The Watchers

Enemy of Standard Oil and still vilified, Huey Long died 80 years ago.

“Under the principle of the separation of church and state it is not legal to provide funding to Catholic schools. Louisiana had in Huey Long’s and still has many Catholic schools where Catholic parents preferred to send their children. Huey long came up with the simple but brilliant ploy of providing textbooks to children rather than to their schools. This enable the state government to subsidize both public and parochial education. Many people, even political opponents of Long supported this program.

Long however wanted to impose the cost of the textbook program upon the petroleum companies like Standard Oil. This measure was not supported by many in the state legislature.”

They were never investigated for ordering his assassination but they had the means, the motive and the opportunity to do the deed.  Today reports on (enemy of oil companies) Hugo Chavez with the same spirit as the dictator description given to (enemy of oil companies) Long.
