The subsidence is all-l-l over the place. They had better get some big sets of Lego™ ! Freedomrox says it is way worse than this. The photo, we all know, is out of date, and he says the subsidence is really way further out than their claim. That puts Highway 70 in great danger of failing near the north berm.
Also – he says, “Two months ago, a brine pipeline sunk and burst a six wide rip on the EAST Side of Grand Bayou, and was replaced. Sonny Cranch refused to answer the question, altho’ he was ordered to do so under Directive Number 6. Everything you see now is OLD Information. The subsidence area now extends to 50 square acres, not the 42 depicted in the graphic. Read the updates in “Plans” and “Texas Brine” reports for the last two months…..I never lie. It’s all there.”
To see what 1,000 feet from Highway 70 looks like – this picture →
measures the distance from the north edge of the 2 big tanks to Hwy 70 as being about 1,381 feet. No way is the edge of Lake FUBAR 1,000 feet from Hwy 70.
Texas Brine has a ‘new’ fact sheet they held onto for 6 days before posting.
Rivers near Baton Rouge are near flood stage. Flood Warning: “THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER AT RED RIVER LANDING AFFECTING EAST BATON ROUGE…POINTE COUPEE AND WEST FELICIANA PARISHES” Some flooding on the map is just north of Bayou Corne. Guess which way it will go!
