Volcano RED ALERT for Idaho Turns Out to be a Hoax + Wed. News + New Fly Over

CORRECTION: This item (next paragraph) has origins with famous internet hoaxer, Sorcha Faal.  It is a fake story. SORRY, EVERYBODY!

A warning issued today by the Ministry of the Russian Federal for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters (EMERCOM) has advised the World Organization of Volcano Observatories (WOVO) that a “Red Alert” status level for the Borah Peak Mountain in Idaho (North America/United States) may be warranted in the coming weeks due to increased volcanic-seismic activity detected by both ground and satellite observations.

AIG Says Sinkholes Fell Outside Texas Brine Policy Period

National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, PA et al v. Texas Brine Company, LLC

AIG Says Sinkholes Fell Outside Texas Brine Policy Period

Law360, New York (April 14, 2014, 6:52 PM ET) — Two American International Group Inc. units on Monday asked a federal judge to find they have no duty to cover salt producer Texas Brine Co. in litigation over the company’s alleged responsibility for a potentially dangerous 2012 Louisiana sinkhole that led to forced evacuations.
National Union Fire Insurance Co. of Pittsburgh, Pa. and American International Specialty Lines Insurance Co. said in a complaint filed in Texas federal court that Texas Brine’s claim seeking coverage for alleged loss and damage claims filed by multiple claimants, mostly pending. . . .

Update from the Office of Conservation about the Code 1 and the work today (via Parish Blog).

New Madrid Fault Zone Activity

  • 2.6 quake in Damascus, Arkansas < MAP
  • 1.3 quake in Marston, Missouri < MAP

NOTE: We added a link to the essay “Too Big to Fool” to the bottom of our explosion index page. It lists lots of reasons why the Bayou Corne disaster is connected to those gas explosions we all noticed.

“While it may appear mysterious and baffling to USCG (and BP’s experts ???? no excuse being experienced exploration giant) this massive gas discharge associated phenomena is observed in many natural and man-induced sub-seabed conditions. Many will recall our previous postings warning of such massive gaseous discharges in the Gulf as well as on Land. The gas bubbles at Bayou Corne are examples of a more gradual gaseous discharge along the fault lines. Sinkhole collapses such as the Napoleonville Salt cavern were hastened 1000s of time faster than their natural erosion rate. The recent spate of mysterious gas fires and explosions all the NAIB (not only the New Madrid zone as they would have you believe) were all related to these massive gas discharges phenomena.

In short, the key factors are ……

A>>underlying gas sources (methane vaporised from hydrates or escaped from reservoirs),

B>>permeable faults to facilitate leakage to shallow levels,

C>>accumulation in the shallow sediments or structural traps,

D>>interaction with the resident source sediment or materials within the traps, or further underground erosion with naturally occurring water (brine or fresh aquifer water, surface rivers)

E>>eruption / emission through temporary fissures caused by surface seismic waves (seismic terminology not the common sea surface waves) whenever a shallow quake occurs no matter how small the magnitude, man-made explosion, large building demolition, fracking, Dams, Caverns mining, large scale excavation and tunnelling etc.

So instead of tens of unfounded “Aladdin & his magical lamp” theories, there must be one obvious common geologically sound TRIGGER to all these. As all these activities (coinciding with the abnormal rise in marine wildlife fatalities) so coincidentally increased (abnormally) after BP’s indiscriminate drilling and criminal explosions (outside the normal industrial practices) in Feb-April 2010 and on 1Aug 2010, it is abundantly clear that BPGOD has to be the culprit of such long term devastating environmental and biological damage.”

Jumping Jack Flash (explosions) Event Update For 2013-07-11

Scrap iron and H2S combustion – comment we found (number 3)

“Lack of ozone doesn’t cause piles of rusty scrap iron to burst into flame; I’ve covered a number of stories where that has happened. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rusty iron. What’s the alternative explanation? There is none.

Why was it that this past year, a major metropolitan area (on a coast), Kuwait City, was told to shelter-in-place because of hydrogen sulfide, for the first time in human history? I think it was because of hydrogen sulfide. (Yes, they actually told the truth that time, though they blamed that one on an oil well leak 60 miles away.)

Why was hydrogen sulfide detected in the air in Southern California? I think it was because there was hydrogen sulfide in the air.

Why was hydrogen sulfide detected in the sinkhole in Louisiana, and why was hydrogen sulfide detected bubbling up through the ground in Canada, and why was hydrogen sulfide found inside a library in Ohio? All three, because there WAS hydrogen sulfide present – they detected it. I covered all of those stories. . .”   (more)

The WatchersLarge, distant earthquakes may cause smaller quakes at U.S. drilling sites


As far as hopin’ there’d be no news over the weekend … that only lasted ½ way through.  Sort of barfy out there. And besides stinking like barf locals may get a whiff of methane and ethane thanks to Chevron!

Some volcanoes ‘scream’ at ever-higher pitches until they blow their tops

It is not unusual for swarms of small earthquakes to precede a volcanic eruption. They can reach a point of such rapid succession that they create a signal called harmonic tremor that resembles sound made by various types of musical instruments, though at frequencies much lower than humans can hear. A new analysis of an eruption sequence at Alaska’s Redoubt Volcano in March 2009 shows that the harmonic tremor glided to substantially higher frequencies and then stopped abruptly just before six of the eruptions, five of them coming in succession.

“The frequency of this tremor is unusually high for a volcano, and it’s not easily explained by many of the accepted theories,”

of special interest:

“Because there’s less time between each earthquake, there’s not enough time to build up enough pressure for a bigger one,” Hotovec-Ellis said. “After the frequency glides up to a ridiculously high frequency, it pauses and then it explodes.”

Texas Brine put out a factsheet dated July 11.

The parish put out a new DEPTH SURVEY of Lake FUBAR

Thanks to David H. for this tip – 😉    HERE is our earlier post with the famous red line outside west boundary.  And look at the new Depth Survey map fixed up by David H. with a READABLE boundary line:



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  distance_to70

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!

Texas Brine will hold a demonstration of the cone pentrometer test (CPT) unit in Bayou Corne at Sportsman’s Landing this Saturday, June 22 at 9:00 a.m.   The CPT unit is expected to be working next week on all streets in the Bayou Corne community. Additional details will be made available to the public by Texas Brine Representatives on Saturday. <  Some more info on this test by Walter Coin.
