Dear DNR,

Fix those helicorders! They are ALL turned OFF since Nov. 4 and most are broken!

How can authorities guarantee the safety of Louisiana water, Bayou Corne neighbors and the national gas supply if you have NO monitors at this dangerous caved-in salt cavern next to huge butane storage tanks?

New Drilling Next to Lake FUBAR? + NEWS

Dublinsmick has this BP related item – 2012 documentary shows Omar Mateen [Orlando guy] working security during BP oil spill-Deep Water Horizon Blow Out

Mittens sent in this Oil & Gas THREAT MAP link. It is now on the MAP page near the bottom.

(April 28 )  Meeting held to get public’s opinion of proposal for drilling salt dome near giant sinkhole

“Shintech Louisiana wants to start drilling another salt dome near the site of the sinkhole in Assumption Parish.”

If you think there have been a lot of sinkholes worldwide past few weeks you are right.

Here’s how calm things are at Lake FUBAR –
LA-18 (one of the few working helicorders left)

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

FLOOD WARNINGS for East Baton Rouge area (not Assumption Parish, though).

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.

UPDATE: On River Bend NPP in the post about nuke plants and the flooding.

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. ”
