On That Barge Crash Tuesday Near Waterford 3 Nuke Plant

New Orleans Times-PicayuneBarge capsizes near Hahnville, closing Mississippi River to ships

“A barge carrying caustic soda capsized in the Mississippi River above Hahnville on Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 26), forcing the closure of the river to ship traffic between mile markers 126 and 131...”

We couldn’t find mile marker 131, but it seems near the Bonnet Carre Spillway.


Mining Awareness says “That is either just below or could be at Waterford! What happens for water intake? “
Let’s see . . . .

Soil Sample Testing Results From The Bayou Corne Sinkhole

“The soil (more like sludge) collected from outside the sinkhole turned out to be 30.5 % petroleum hydrocarbons. Many of these hydrocarbons are much lighter than the ones we have found from the BP oil spill. That means that these chemicals are more likely to get into the air. There were also hundreds of parts per million of heavy hydrocarbons, including toxic polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons.”

Fires Breaking Out in Louisiana – updated

Also there’s a LIVE Map of US fires. We have the link on the bottom of our MAP page.

The fires might be froms sugarcane farming. They burn the stubble after harvest.

Sugarcane producer takes production challenges in stride

[snip] . . . . It’s economical for Lanaux to try to get as much as he can out of his stubble. “With the high price of sugar, 30-ton cane is like 40-ton cane back when prices were lower, and nobody busted out 40-ton cane,” said Lanaux, who has some fifth-year stubble this year.”
All of Lanaux’s cane goes to Raceland Raw Sugar. After that it is trucked to Dominos where it is refined.
Lanaux still burns his cane stubble after harvest, but that hasn’t presented much of a problem for urban dwellers. “You just pick a day when the wind is right and you go for it.”

It looks to us like about all of these fires showing up from satellite view etc. are normal sugar cane harvest time farm fires and not related to other strange fire phenomena reported here. Assumption Parish has its own ag station and there are state agencies at the sinkhole site who know how to communicate to the ag dept. should they need to tell area farmers there is a burn ban on. The agricultural sector in Louisiana is not clueless about the sinkhole doings, methane etc.

So the fire stories here are reposted for information only.
