Lake FUBAR Rocks to Mexican Tune! Saturday Hat Dance All Over the World!

A 6.6M earthquake off Mexico’s Pacific side SHOOK UP Lake Fubar!

USGS quake report  LA-18
LA18_MexQuake2016THEN . . . 

Something big happened around 9 p.m. CST —

and it doesn’t match any quakes on the USGS list.





Walter noticed ALL the helicorders all over (not just Louisiana) are goin’ nuts.

Check this worldwide helicorder map and check ANY location now and compare to Friday or Thursday. You will see the familiar Mexico quake on the Americas’ helis. And then everything goes batsh-t crazy today!

We did some screen grabs from the world monitoring site.





We added 2 new links to the Seismic Monitoring section on the right sidebar (this map plus the frac quake page from VA Tech).

SUNDAY:  7.1 quake up in Alaska. We don’t know what this means for Lake FUBAR.

USGS Report –  see also update about that area on the Yellowstone blog.

Some Drinking Water News –

It’s not just Flint that’s poisoned mentions New Orleans

The drinking water in St. Joseph (Tensas Parish) is in very bad shape. There is awful brown water coming out of the taps. See photos here:

The city was appropriated $6m to fix its water system. But the town failed to provide an audit to the state government, which has blocked the funding from reaching the town.  This failure of leadership is hurting the community. The people need strong leadership to get the funding to fix the problem. Further, the city needs state and federal intervention.

Please sign the petition to get federal intervention here, and please forward this along to your members:

11:55 a.m. Seismic Activity Visible Around Sinkhole

So let’s do a FLY OVER! Just to prove how STABLE it all is 🙂


Assumption Parish Police Jury

An increase in Seismic Activity has been observed in past weeks around the Sinkhole.  Activity occurred sometime last night that indicates water movement as well as a drop in water level within the contained area of the sinkhole.  There has been no noticeable changes to the trees or surface anywhere around the Sinkhole.

LDOTD has reported no changes being observed in any of the instrumentation placed along Highway 70.

Study: Gas-charged fluids creating seismicity associated with a Louisiana sinkhole

Bayou Corne Sinkhole Expanding; Seismicity Increasing

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. In August 2012, the emergence of a very large sinkhole at the Napoleonville Salt Dome in Louisiana offered University of California, Berkeley scientists the opportunity to detect, locate and analyze a rich sequence of 62 seismic events that occurred one day prior to its discovery. . .  (more)
