This newest methane bubbling site is in the northwestern most edge of the Bayou Corne community. This is the first BIG bubble site in the bayou that I am aware of on the north side of HWY 70, and so far west. See Nick Romeros interview with CBS at cbsnews.com The Sunday Morning Show under videos. Very moving, and he voices so many of our feelings. Mine, for sure.

Door Point: A Buried Volcano In Southeast Louisiana – A Paper Written in 1976


TRANSACTIONS-GULF COAST ASSOCIATION OF GEOLOGICAL SOCIETIES

Volume XXVI, 1976

Jules Braunstein and Claude E. McMichael

An exploratory well, the Shell Oil Company, State Lease 3956 No. 1, Offshore St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, was completed in 1963 at a total depth of 8538 feet. The last 1300 feet of hole was cored and drilled through volcanic material of Late Cretaceous Age. The location of this well is shown on Figure 1.
Pre-drilling seismic data had revealed the presence on this prospect of intrusive material with a density slightly higher than that of the surrounding sediments. Gravity data defined a weak maximum here, and no salt was believed to be present.
The igneous material consisted of angular fragments of altered porphyritic basic rock. In cores it proved to be evenly bedded and cemented by sparry calcite. Radioactivity age dating fixed a minimum age of crystallization of this rock at 82 m.y. + 8, or middle Late Cretaceous (Austin). Bulk density of the igneous rock ranged from 2.02 gm/cc near the top of its occurrence to 2.53 gm/cc near the bottom of the well.

Three gas accumulations, with an aggregate thickness of 38 feet, were encountered in the Miocene section between 5092 and 6219 feet in the Shell well. Gas-bearing sands were not present in two other wells drilled later on the same structure (Fig. 2).


Although evidence of Late Cretaceous volcanic activity is widespread in northern Louisiana, as well as in Mississippi, and southeast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico, the Door Point prospect lies within an area that had been previously designated as being free of volcanism.

Massive Sinkhole In Louisiana Baffles Officials


March 20, 2013 2:24 PM

 

After the collapse of a salt mine in south Louisiana last year, a 9-acre sinkhole has flooded the area. It also caused gas and oil leaks, and local residents are fed up.

Debbie Elliott/NPR

Louisiana officials are grappling with a giant sinkhole that’s threatening a neighborhood. A salt mine collapsed last year, creating a series of problems regulators say they’ve never seen before, including tremors and oil and gas leaks and a sinkhole that now covers 9 acres.

Residents have been evacuated for more than seven months now and are losing patience.

Ernie Boudreaux lives in a trailer on Jambalaya Street in Bayou Corne, La. Strange things have been happening to his home, he says.

“It cracks. You can hear it. The doors pop open by themselves,” Boudreaux says.

The front porch is separating from the trailer and sometimes he smells oil — all problems that started after the sinkhole opened less than a half mile from his house. His neighborhood is under a mandatory evacuation, but Boudreaux comes back a few days a week to care for his dog, Diesel.

Houston-based Texas Brine has been mining salt near the Bayou Corne community for more than 40 years. The company is now paying evacuated residents $875 a week to cover temporary housing costs. But Boudreaux, a welder, says he can’t find a rental that takes pets the size of Diesel, so he stays with his sister some and then comes home. He wants a more permanent solution.

“That $875 a week is hush-hush money — keep everybody quiet and just let it settle down. I say, I’m not letting this settle down. You talking about land, home that we can’t come back to,” Boudreaux says. “And if you do, it ain’t worth nothing.”

‘Just Like An Experiment’

From Boudreaux’s backyard you can see the entrance to Texas Brine. The firm operates several salt wells here in Assumption Parish, injecting water into an underground salt dome to leach out brine. The sodium chloride is used by the nearby petrochemical industries that line the Mississippi River between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Ernie Boudreaux, who lives a half mile from the sinkhole, has been living with his sister for the past seven months.

“This is the sinkhole,” says Texas Brine spokesman Sonny Cranch. He looks out over what appears to be a lake surrounded by swampland and a fresh earthen levee. It was all swamp before Aug. 3, the morning workers discovered the sinkhole.

One day the area was swamp, he says, and the next “there’s nothing, except debris, floating vegetative matter, and as it turned out, there was some liquid hydrocarbon that had risen to the surface.”

That was crude oil and natural gas bubbling up from below ground. It was a mystery at first, but now authorities say an abandoned salt cavern collapsed, shifting the rock and salt formations deep below, causing the sinkhole above and unleashing hydrocarbons into the groundwater aquifer up to two miles from the site.

The sinkhole is still growing. Monitoring reveals continuing shifting underground and a possible problem at a second cavern.

The state has ordered Texas Brine to drill 30 of these natural gas wells around Bayou Corne.

Patrick Courreges with the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources says the escaping methane poses a danger. “Want to get that out so that you don’t have the risk of homes with enclosed spaces having a concentration of gas buildup that could be flammable or explosive,” Courreges says.

Courreges says Texas Brine had plugged and abandoned this salt mine in 2010 after integrity problems. And state rules at the time did not require any continued monitoring. Now scientists have discovered that the side wall of the salt cavern collapsed, causing tremors, the sinkhole and oil and gas leaks. Courreges says they’ve yet to find a road map for dealing with this unique set of problems.

“When we started looking around [asking] who else has this happened to, and the answer came — and we’re still looking — is nobody,” he says.

That makes it hard to predict what will happen next.

“It’s just like an experiment,” says Wilma Subra, a technical adviser to the Louisiana Environmental Action Network. “But the issue is, it is continuing to degrade. So as long as it’s degrading, you can’t say we’ve reached the end of degradation and now we can figure out how to remedy.”

Buyouts At Bayou Corne

Bayou Corne resident Nick Romero is losing his patience.

“I didn’t do anything. I didn’t cause this,” Romero says.

In his front yard, Romero watches gas bubbles seep up slowly through the cypress-studded swamp. “I’m being driven from the thing that I love the most,” he says.

He’s a retired postal worker and his wife, Brenda, is a nature artist. They’ve been here more than 20 years.

“The damage is done,” Brenda says. “Our property is worth zero.”

Nick Romero says after seven months, nothing is getting better. He wants Texas Brine to ante up.

“Man has played around and stuck his hands where he shouldn’t have and mother nature says It’s time for y’all to leave,” he says. “They’re responsible for causing it, so it’s time for them to pay up.”

Cranch of Texas Brine says the company will work with individual families to reach a fair settlement. “We want resolution of this. We really, truly appreciate the emotional stress this has caused for so many of these people in the Bayou Corne area,” Cranch says.

Some residents have sued Texas Brine. And Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is demanding damages for all of the 350 residents near the sinkhole. He also says the company owes the state more than $8 million for its response to the crisis.

“They’re the ones that are the responsible party. They caused this damage, and certainly we’ll be aggressive in making sure that they pay their bills — whether it’s to the state, local government or the folks they buy out,” Jindal said.

Back on Jambalaya Street, Boudreaux wants the buyout but isn’t sure where he’ll to go from Bayou Corne.

“We born and raised here. Ain’t like I’m going to say I’m moving to Baton Rouge because I’m not a city person,” he says. “I’m born in the swamp and bayous. They ain’t got a bayou I’m outta place. I can’t go to no city. But where you gonna go? That’s the thing.”

Gulf of Mexico ~ Disappearing sheen, disappearing life


Three years after the BP Macondo well disaster, the Gulf of Mexico is still covered in oil and barely sustaining visible life above or below the surface. Undisclosed white matter is appearing and leakages with other drill sites appears to be problematic. With such a massive dead zone, it makes you wonder how long oil rigs have negligently been spewing toxins and the rig disaster wasn’t part of a long term plan to expand the dead zone to include the entire Gulf of Mexico; all aimed at turning the entire region into a vast wasteland of oil rigs leaking oil, Corexit and other toxic chemicals into the core engine of the oceans converter belt.

To keep the sheen suppressed under surface water, spraying Corexit is still a daily routine on behalf of BP. So, below where it mentions the Macondo well looks good after one week, it took thousands of gallons of Corexit to break up the sheen and sink the toxic goo below the surface.

Gulf of Mexico – Macondo prospect, Taylor Energy, Breton Sound

(Today’s Gulf overflight was made possible by donations from the listeners of the radio station ThePowerHour.com. Thank You Joyce Riley and all of your listeners for putting us back in the air to bring you the facts!)  

We jumped at another day of clear skies and calm seas to make a quick flight to check on some of the fifteen oil pollution sites we documented and reported from last Friday’s flight over the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana. We were particularly interested to see the status of the extensive sheen we saw in the Macondo area last Friday. To our surprise, that area looked mostly clear today — clear of surface oil, and void of life. The water was beautifully calm, even 50 miles off the coast. Plenty calm enough to see sharks and fish who do not need to break the surface. And yet we saw no bait balls, no flying fish, no seabirds hunting, no rays, turtles, sharks, dolphins, whales. Nada; nothing alive was seen along our flight route today.

The Taylor Energy site — that chronic oil pollution debacle about 12 nm off the coast of Louisiana that has been spewing oil into the Gulf since Hurricane Ivan hit in 2004 — continues to horrify. We filmed plenty of thick rainbow oil, even some brown weathered crude hanging in a portion of it. The thickest part of the slick has moved a few miles northward from where it typically has been in the past, perhaps due to prevailing strong southerly winds of late. But it’s never difficult for us to find it; we usually can spot it more than ten miles away, even on cloudy days.

In addition to the Taylor site, we reported another of what we have seen and reported before and presume to be a natural seep, this one about 12 nm west-southwest of MC252. We also saw and reported a substantial slick (over a mile long) along Louisiana’s eastern coast, east of Empire, LA at the south end of California Bay.  These comprised our three NRC reports, detailed below in our Flight Log. Here are a few sample photos.  Many more follow, in the galleries below.

TV: Gas pipeline fire out of control in Louisiana bayou — 19 miles long with fuel still inside — Could burn for days (VIDEO)


Published: March 13th, 2013 at 3:18 pm ET
By

WGNO (h/t Anonymous tip): It happened just before 7 o’clock Tuesday evening about two miles from the C & M Marina. Authorities say a tug boat first caught fire, then the fire spread to the barge.

WGNO: A tug boat is on fire after emergency responders believe it struck a fuel line in Bayou Perot near Lafitte Harbor. […]  Jefferson Parish Councilman Chris Roberts tells WGNO News that the barge is on fire, and a representative from the U.S. Coast Guard says the fire is burning out of control.

Source: U.S. Coast Guard

Associated Press: There was still liquid petroleum gas in the 19-mile pipeline and authorities were waiting for it to burn out, Coast Guard Petty Officer Alex Washington said.

Associated Press, 2:45p ET: The Coast Guard says it will likely take until Thursday or later for a pipeline fire in Louisiana to burn itself out. Capt. Jonathan Burton said the barge was carrying 92,000 gallons of oil, but none was believed to be leaking. He said a sheen, which could be from diesel fuel, was spotted in Bayou Perot about 30 miles south of New Orleans. Four people aboard the tugboat were injured, one severely. Smoke rising from the site was visible Wednesday from downtown New Orleans. […]

IMPORTANT SINKHOLE UPDATE: Authorities warn of possible HYDROGEN SULFIDE Expulsion Event Mar. 12, 2013


The situation in Louisiana is getting extremely dangerous, residents should evacuate the region. If this new cavern collapses releasing high levels of hydrogen sulfide into the environment, there’s a very highly likelihood of mass causalities in the affected areas. We don’t know how a collapse like this will affect the geological terrain which is already fractured from hydraulic fracking operations going all the way north to Illinois, these domes collapsing could create enormous instability that would have rippling effects on the New Madrid fault zone.

There’s also the real danger of a very large explosion that would also contain highly toxic fumes from all the radioactive waste and industrial chemicals stored in these caverns. Your family’s safety is the most important thing, it would be highly advisable to get out of the area ASAP.

Nuked Radio #97 Two Years of The Fook


Another grand slam from the Radchick, great show with important new information on why the sinkholes may be forming in Florida and Louisiana; which also explains why the Tampa Airport moved 10 degree two years ago! Remember when they told us they had to recalibrate because the poles had shifted? Did anyone else wonder why just one airport had this problem? Christina tells us how severe the problems really are…

Please listen to these shows and share freely, Nuked Radio is covering the most important issues facing humanity. Extremely dangerous situations threatening the survival of life on Earth are literally spiraling out of control, while at the same time the cognitive dissonance surrounding environmental issues has never been higher.

So we need EVERYONES help getting this information out. With an ave. 3000 readers a day coming to this blog, we can make a real impact by simply sharing these videos. It’s up to us to make the difference…

The never-ending saga of Fukushima also helped many of us become aware of a myriad of nuclear issues that have been going on (and covered-up) for decades. So in a way, we can “thank” Fukushima for that. We have come a long way in just 2 years 🙂

Dave Parrish calls in to talk about final ticket totals for the premiere of Christopher Noland’s “Surviving Japan” and his thoughts about the film. We also play a clip of Professor Cham Dallas.

And stay tuned at the end, as Kevin Allan takes a walk through his hometown asking people about radiation in the snow, the national debt, and other important issues…too bad most people avoided him like the plaque. Is it really any wonder we are in the shape we are in?

MUST READ ARTICLE by Jeanette Sherman published March 5th, 2013:

Fukushima: Two Years Later
Over the last two years, questions arise as to whether the Fukushima nuclear disaster is worse than Chernobyl. Unless the principles of physics, chemistry and biology are cancelled, the effects that have been documented in the various populations exposed to the radioactive releases from Chernobyl will occur in those exposed to Fukushima releases. This is not new information — it has been known for decades.

Louisiana Sinkhole ~ Before and After Comparison


Wow! If you haven’t seen video’s of the Louisiana sinkhole recently, you’ll be shocked at how much it’s grown in just the last month. Below are two video’s, the first is from August shortly after the salt dome wall caved in and the second was taken last week. Yesterday a report came in from Lake Peigneir that long lines of methane bubbles were seen on the water and last week I posted a video from Pink showing what appeared to be some kind of statewide event on radar, quite possibly a massive methane expulsion. There’s a methane hydrate glacier in the Gulf of Mexico that began melting after it was hit with seawater from the BP Macondo oil drilling disaster. Methane melts at an exponential rate, meaning it gains more and more momentum as time goes by. So at this point it’s safe to assume the melt rate is picking up spread as methane breach’s the salt dome cavity’s.

Mysterious bubbling reported by salt dome 50 miles from giant Louisiana sinkhole — Sheriff asking motorists to stay away


For those of you who don’t know, Lake Peigneur is the Louisiana lake that was swallowed up along with 65 acres of land after a drilling rig missed the salt dome. Video below.

Advocate, February 21, 2013: Opponents of expanding the underground natural gas storage facility under Lake Peigneur asked state regulators on Wednesday to carefully review what they argue has the potential to become another disaster on the scale of the growing sinkhole in Assumption Parish. […] AGL Resources is proposing to scour out two new salt caverns for natural gas storage […] [Nara] Crowley and other residents cited a host of potential safety and environmental concerns and pointed to the continued bubbling at the lake. Bubbling also was reported at Bayou Corne before the sinkhole developed there last year. […]

WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Feb 21, 2013: Residents who live in Lake Peigneur in Iberia Parish are worried active bubbling on the lake near their homes could be putting their lives in danger. [..] The Department of Environmental Quality sent workers to the area to take samples of the mysterious bubbles on the lake surface. […]

KATC Lafayette, Louisiana, Feb. 20, 2013: Residents calim [sic] the lake has bubbled in the past and captured pictures of it bubbling again Wednesday afternoon.

The Daily Iberian, Feb. 21, 2013: […] The most recent was Wednesday afternoon. The Vermilion and Iberia Parish sheriff’s offices as well as DNR were called out this morning when residents saw the lake was still bubbling. The Iberia Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking motorists to stay clear of the area until DNR and the Department of Environmental Quality assess the bubbling. [Resident Nara] Crowley said this is the first time bubbling has continued into a second day. […]

Agents inspect mystery bubbling by another Louisiana salt dome: We found foaming residue… something’s happening — Witness: Lines of bubbles stretched for thousands of feet (VIDEOS)

The Advocate, February 22, 2013: The state Department of Natural Resources sent field agents to Lake Peigneur in Iberia Parish on Thursday to investigate reports of bubbling at the lake, where natural gas is stored in massive underground caverns scoured out of a large salt dome. Residents in the area have reported sporadic bubbling in the past and have raised concerns that similar bubbling was observed in the Bayou Corne area in northern Assumption Parish before a large sinkhole developed there last year. […] “We found foaming residue on the top,” [DNR spokesman Patrick Courreges] said. “… The foam is the result of something happening.” […] [Resident Nara] Crowley said the latest instance of bubbling seems to have gone on longer than any other episode, with bubbles observed for several hours on Wednesday and on Thursday morning. She said that lines of bubbles stretched for a few thousand feet across the lake. […] WATCH VIDEO

Spirit is sending us strong messages regarding earthquakes… perhaps they are due to the big one that is highly probable to be triggered by collapse of Louisiana salt dome, which would trigger the New Madrid faultline to destabilize, which would trigger weeks or months of strong worldwide earthquakes.

Bayou Corne Sinkhole Disaster Health Monitoring Failure


Published on Nov 16, 2012

Human rights reporter Deborah Dupré, reporting from Bayou Corne Sinkhole Disaster area, Nov. 12, 2012:
At the Bayou Corne Sinkhole Disaster resident meeting with officials in Pierre Part on Nov. 12, 2012, Dr. Paul Brown demonstrated that health monitoring, regarding chemicals being released in the area impacting human life, is inadequate, a human rights violation. Although the official chairing the meeting, Louisiana State Representative Karen St. Germain, interrupted and tried to stop Brown from speaking, he continued and received a hearty response from residents. The area had already been plagued by cancer before the sinkhole chemicals began to be released, according to locals at the meeting who worry about the added chemicals in their environment.

Tony, “the Truck Stop Tiger” Vid 1 OF 2


Calling all animal rights activist to join me in the fight to release “Tony the Tiger” from prison at a Louisiana truckstop, where he’s basically living on concrete in confined quarters, just off the highway and at this point appears to be in declining health…can you think of a more Godawful place to live 24/7/365, that would make any living being sick, especially tigers which need open space to move about? The owners of the truckstop recently lost a 4yr old white female tiger to pancreatic cancer, which isn’t surprising considering all the toxic diesel, gas and exhaust fumes they’re constantly exposed to. It appears the owners only care about having the tiger as a means to draw traffic into the store and even have the female tiger that died on display inside the truckstop!!! The sheer inhumanity of people is absolutely unbelievable…

The owner of the truckstop has a court date in February, lets make the courts aware that the world is watching their decision. That cruelty and inhumane living conditions for wildlife is unacceptable in a “conscious and humane” society.

In the second video, Tony didn’t make an appearance…all you hear is the lady talking to a truck driver about Tony’s plight. At the bottom of the page are links to learn more about how you can contact the courts and owner of the truckstop to help free Tony…

Published on Jan 23, 2013

DATE OF VISIT: Jan 22, 2013 Tues
http://youtu.be/_oW85GzKEWg (Video One)
1. Tony’s appearance begins around the 01:55 minute mark into the video. What the truck driver says prior to this mark has NOT BEEN CONFIRMED TO BE TRUE.

2. Regarding Tony’s health, 2 REPLIES to Facebook from “Sandlin and his team”:

a) This statement received from Mr. Sandlin via his Public Relations person on Jan 24, 2013 Thurs:

“Tony has never been diagnosed with cancer. Tony is doing fine. I have had one tiger that died of Pancreatic Cancer. Salena was just short of 4 years old when she died. She was a white female. Of course, white tigers tend to be more suspect to disease than thier counterparts. This is the tiger that the waitress was referring to and Salena is now on display in the restaurant. Also, Tony is not forced to stay on the concrete. He has access to the grassy play area 99% of the time. Thank you for your concern.”

b) THIS IS THE RESPONSE THAT I GET PERSONALLY FROM MR SANDLIN HIMSELF ON Jan 26, Sat:
“Cloversweed, Have your veterinarian call me. I would be happy to let him visually inspect Tony, at your expense of course, and I would also allow him/her to convey any concerns to our Veterinarian, Dr. Shannon Gonsoulin.”

3. This video has been submitted to our ALDF contact and we hope the ALDF can use this video as evidence and argument to the case Feb 19 when the courts hear ALDF’s oral arguments in the appeal to free Tony.
http://aldf.org/article.php?id=2233#.UQGWxwrbzt0

It is very clear to see Tony needs medical attention. It is no rumor or miscommunication that this video speaks for itself. Anybody else, besides me, notice a significant decline in Tony’s health and well-being? Please comment.

4. COMMENT POSTED dated Jan 20, 2013 by MistaCruez, referring to my visit Dec 13, 2012, when Tony stayed in his bed all day long. I was at TTS until dark that day. Tony never came out. I must have missed Tony eating breakfast on that day.

“Hi My name is travis ive live in Grosse tete my whole life and tonys been around my whole life and i see tony every day. I love him to death but maybe theres a time when you have to say bye. What im trying to say is please get him out of here! He looks sicker everday now he wont even gett out his bed. Please Help tony!”

I don’t belong here,

I remixed this video with a remix button via permission from youtube channel cajunmiracle. He lives in the area surrounding Parrish Assumption and has many problems associated with local fracking and floating airborne toxins. He is within 80 miles of the uncontrolled growing sinkhole.

This remixed video was originally Published on Nov 16, 2012 by cajunmiracle

Being a long term Alaskan resident we are having the same basic problems here as with all other states in the USA, that we are being bombarded with leaking nuclear plant radiation near and afar, fracking, weather modifications happening here and in almost all USA states, runaway pollution to the point we have major damage, toxic waste created daily that will be here longer than mankind has even been on the earth. The point of remixing this video is to inform others of the seriousness and present danger to all life, human and animal on this earth. This is no joke! We need simple creative solutions now and in the near future to save whats left of the wildlife in Southern Louisiana as well as the very lives of all the victims who have paid a dear price just for being in the way of the NWO’s so called, progressive new world, they are terra-forming to create. These environmental problems are man-made, although some may say the devil was involved, just follow the money trail and all will be more transparent.

For the people of Louisiana, the time I spent there, at friends and families houses, there are those of us out there that do care and are speaking out in your defense. It is not OK what is happening in Southern Louisiana! That we, in Alaska, are having the same problems with runaway oil/gas/mining fracking operations and all of the obvious tracks that go with such endeavors such as using local water aquifers not as a public drinking water sources but as a main ingredient that is used in Fracking, hence, all the water shortages and pollution of our aquifers.

Louisiana Sinkhole’s Explosive Potential Massively Understated!


Louisiana Sinkhole’s Explosive Potential Massively Understated!

PART I

By: FREEDOMROX

As I have previously reported on, in Massive Explosive Potential in Louisiana and Gulf of Mexico. Doomsday?, and PART II, the various threats all of us are facing posed by the mammoth issues in Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico, are spinning completely out of control. The consequences are far reaching, phenomenal, and highly volatile.

Instead of weaving this update one into another…this time I shall take it one area at a time, this time focusing on just the Napoleonville “Sinkhole”. If any doubt the veracity of any of the claims I make, please rest assured a link will be provided for each and every salient point, normally by scientific entreaties, video, or news sources, as well as the usual authorities.

BAYOU CORNE SINKHOLE:

Much has happened since my last article. The so-called “sinkhole” has now grown to over eight football fields in size with daily seismic activity. Although close to 85, 000 gallons of oil have been removed from the surface of the lake it has become, the water is still slick black with oil.

The flyovers show us that the surrounding swamp water has invaded and is overflowing the sinkhole contaminating the surrounding swamps, as well as methane invading both the Louisiana and Mississippi Aquifers. Several wells have been drilled in an attempt to flare off the methane, but most clogged, and one well being drilled into the cap rock of the Salt Dome was shut down when Hydrogen Sulfide was discovered the day before Thanksgiving.

http://enenews.com/watch-officials-call-state-police-sinkhole-after

The bottom of the “sinkhole” has risen over fifty feet, indicating a sub-pressure gas or fluid.

This is born out by the Itasca Consulting Group;

“Dr. Will Pettitt, Principal Geophysicist at Itasca Consulting Group, has reviewed the seismic data recorded overnight on November 20/21. Long-period seismic tremors and micro-earthquakes have been observed, similar to those defined previously by Dr. Steve Horton of CERI/USGS, and recorded mainly on station LA08 closest to the sinkhole. The long-period seismic tremors are postulated to be caused by gas and/or fluid movements through the rock collapse zone below the sinkhole on the edge of the salt dome. Micro-earthquakes of this nature are typically associated with small-scale rock movements, and again are believed to be occurring in the collapse zone. The source of both of these event types continues to be investigated by experts.”

http://enenews.com/international-experts-gas-andor-fluid-moving-below-giant-sinkhole-are-thought-to-be-causing-new-tremors

It has also been found that this is not the first time residents of Bayou Corne have had to be evacuated due to escaping gases.

Magnolia, Grand Bayou, south Louisiana (USA)

“The Magnolia Facility operating at the salt dome is located in a sparsely populated area at Napoleonville, about two miles from Grand Bayou, south Louisiana. In 2003, a cavern gas storage facility was constructed in the dome, operated by Entergy Koch/Gulf South. On Christmas Eve/Day 2003, only six weeks after operations began at the facility, around 30 people were forced from their homes by a natural gas (Methane) leak that led to the release of about 9.9 Mcm of gas in a matter of hours.

Investigations revealed that the gas escaped from a crack in the casing of a well near the top of a cavern, some 440 m (1,450 ft) below the surface. It was eventually plugged at a point below the crack and thirty-six other wells were drilled in the area to monitor and control the release of leaked gas that was bubbling up from underground. They removed 375 million cubic feet of gas before they were shut down in 2004.”

Then on August 11th, 2010, while the BP debacle was still ongoing, Assumption Parish was dealt a blow as well, when an Oil Well Blowout Preventer, (sound familiar?), malfunctioned and shot oil over 200 ft. high over a sugar cane field and closed down Hwy. 70 for over three weeks before it was brought under control. Video is here:

http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-481102

Overlooked is the amount of Parish’s that report methane bubbling all around them, as twenty eight bubbling sites associated with giant sinkhole. Authorities also are testing air releases from three new bubble sites found in recent weeks farther west toward Pierre Part and beyond any of the 25 other bubble locations in the general vicinity of Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou.

One far flung Parish is also experiencing similar bubbling that was a precursor of Assumption Parish’s sinkhole is Lake Piegneur, fifty miles away, which was also the site of a Salt Dome and Mine disaster all it’s own in 1980, when the fresh water lake was sucked down into a salt mine, and replaced with a salt water lake after an Texaco oil drilling rig punctured the salt dome being mined. Even after such a disaster, and since 1994 AGL Resources has been using Lake Peigneur’s underlying salt dome as a Storage and Hub facility for pressurized natural gas. Efforts by the residents to stop the current expansion of the salt dome so far has fallen on deaf ears. Gov. Bobby Jindal’s mainly.

Salt Mines disasters are not a new occurrence, but the one in Napoleonville is on a scale previously unknown.

Also, data has been obtained towards just what is in all those caverns under the Napoleonville Salt Dome, Magnolia Facility via industry websites and a report handed in to Department of Natural Resources, Louisiana. The results were beyond chilling.

http://dnr.louisiana.gov/assets/OC/BC_All_Updates/DOC.PDF

Crosstex is not the only source of the Butane at the Magnolia facility, with K/D/S Promix holding butane with a cavern capacity of 1,660,788 Million Barrels, and another storage cavern of iso-butane with a capacity of 1,372,759 Million Barrels. Dow Storage has Ethane/Propane with a potential capacity 9,266,456 BBls. Ethane is three times more flammable than Butane. What really is disturbing is what is kept within one cavern and that is LPG with a potential storage capacity of 1,451,107 BBls.

Why is this disturbing?

According to K/D/S Promix’s Tony Russell, “
“Promix operates a total of 5 wells with 3 of the five being used on a daily basis for the storage and withdrawal of produced liquid hydrocarbon products from the fractionation of natural gas liquids. The other two are empty of hydrocarbons, but full of saturated brine water and are continuously monitored.”
http://dnr.louisiana.gov/assets/OC/BC_All_Updates/SITUATION_REPORTS

According to Natural Gas. Org;

“Whatever the source of the natural gas, once separated from crude oil (if present) it commonly exists in mixtures with other hydrocarbons; principally ethane, propane, butane, and pentanes. In addition, raw natural gas contains water vapor, hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon dioxide, helium, nitrogen, and other compounds. To learn about the basics of natural gas, including its composition, click here.”

This is what is stored under the Napoleonville Salt Dome by K/D/S/Promix and Dow Chemical, as well as Gulf South Pipeline, LP, a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy/Koch LP.

These companies are admitting they have so much worse than Butane stored at Magnolia, (NPVL). Ethane is 3 times more energetic, and flammable than Methane, Butane, or Propane. HIGHLY EXPLOSIVE!

Also Propylene is used in plastics, paints, etc. and is highly explosive at the concentrations that exist in the cavern, and if it reaches the surface water then all vegetation and critters it touches will die. Although Dow refuses to test for water toxicity, it does give a good overview here:

http://www.dow.com/productsafety/finder/pro.htm

Now to add insult to injury, The Dept. of Health and Hospitals acknowledges the well water samples taken in Bayou Corne in September showed:

Benzene

Toulene

Ethylbenzene

Xylene

Total Dissolved Solids

Chlorine

Tentatively Identified Compounds

Butane

Ethane

Ethene

Propane

http://new.dhh.louisiana.gov/assets/oph/Center-EH/envepi/BayouCorne

Seems like a coincidence that the exact same chemicals that are housed in the Salt Caverns are precisely what are detected in the Industrial Well waters. The scary part is that Dow’s caverns are mostly on the East Side of the dome.

I personally don’t believe all of the caverns are separated anymore. All the “earthquakes” are nothing more than the cavern walls breaching, one by one, and all hydrocarbons are now intermixed again into who knows what concoctions, and is being caused by methane migration coming up through the Miocene shale from the Gulf of Mexico, and the Macondo blast site.

I will leave you with this, since so many want to know how explosive this can be. The PepCon explosion was 3.5 on the Richter scale. This is tiny compared to what is stored at Napoleonville, and in just one pipeline leading away from the wellheads..

That will be my segue into Part II, where many more shocking surprises await us back again in the Gulf of Mexico.

Coastal Louisiana Land Submergence, Fault movements


The Louisiana sinkhole-rabbit-hole just got deeper,it makes you wonder if BP was aware of the movement in these fault zone. If so, it provides a great argument for geoenineering on a mass scale. Over the last few years they’ve been doing all kinds of things to upset the geological structure of the land-strata  all the way up the Mississippi River, they’ve been fracking, drilling for oil and breaking levees almost as if to assist Edgar Cayces predictions to come true.

Title: Company, parish disagree on size of sinkhole
Source: The Advocate
Author: David J. Mitchell
Date: November 01, 2012 at 1:09a ET

Assumption Parish and Texas Brine Co. officials issued estimates Wednesday that disagree on how much land a 5.5-acre sinkhole swallowed during the slurry hole’s eastern-bank collapse Tuesday.

Parish officials offered an estimate Wednesday nearly 19 times the size of their initial estimate on Tuesday […] to almost as much as 0.7 acre, or 30,000 square feet. […]

John Boudreaux, director of the parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said measurements calculated on Wednesday comparing current and prior maps showed the area of collapse extends 300 feet along the sinkhole’s bank and extends 75 to 100 feet inland on the eastern rim.

Boudreaux’s original estimate issued less than an hour after the Tuesday event suggested a strip of land 80 feet by 20 feet had fallen into the sinkhole.

Sonny Cranch, Texas Brine spokesman, said Wednesday that the company estimates about […] an area possibly as small as 750 square feet.

Cranch declared the parish overstated the size of the sinkhole’s latest land grab. […]

“It’s a concern, but it’s not endangering operations yet,” he said. […]

Assumption Parish, Oct. 31, 2012: “The traced red line overlaying the photo depicts the area and size of the slough in that was reported to us on yesterday afternoon.”

La. sinkhole methane caused Minden explosions is possibility physicists say

Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality

At least ten powerful explosions Monday night at Camp Minden after a meteor shower have raised many questions, including whether Louisiana’s sinkhole area aquifer explosive-level methane could have traveled north where hit by a meteorite causing the blasts, a possibility according to a physicist and an astrophysicist interviewed by Deborah Dupré Friday. Heavier meteor showers are predicted this weekend.

“If there is enough methane in the air, just about anything (like a rock hitting another rock, causing a spark) could ignite explosions,” physicist Steve Knudsen said in an email Friday.

While some believe Monday night’s explosions could not have been caused by a meteorite because the objects are cold when they reach Earth, Knudsen and chair of West Virginia University Department of Astrophysics Dr. Duncan Lorimer refute that.

“Meteors burn up up but meteorites hit the ground and are hot on impact,” Dr. Lorimer told Dupré Friday in a separate email.

“Depending on the size of the meteor, it would not necessarily be cold by the time it hits the earth,” explained Knuden.

“[O]f course, they have sufficient energy to heat up and burn in the atmosphere, so if there is any methane there then that could happen,” replied Lorimer, after asked if a meteor’s impact on methane in Louisiana could cause an explosion.

The “Camp Minden” explosion was felt in three states, in communities including Lake Bisteneau community that was particularly hard hit by the blasts.

According to a Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality map, Lake Bisteneau is part of the same water system as the sinkhole area where methane has reached explosive level and is life-threatening, according to officials.

A meteor hitting methane could have caused the Camp Minden explosions, but authorities have not publicly released this critically important information. The heaviest of meteorite showers are predicted this weekend.

“Questions are still being asked as to why did it take authorities so long to identify that an explosion had occurred on the post,” asks Rod White, reporting for KTBS on Wednesday.

Monday night, Oct. 15, around 11:26 pm, a large explosion felt in three states occurred in Louisiana’s Webster Parish, reportedly approximately 4 miles southwest of Minden, 28 miles east of Shreveport. The initial event reportedly occurred at Latitude/Longitude 35.578 N, -93.351 W, in the borders of Camp Minden Army ammunition plant. Large flashes had been previously observed, citizens were shaken out of beds and windows shattered during the late night hours.

The dark or another oil and gas disaster?

“Authorities are blaming just the dark for their inability to find the source of that huge explosion,” stated White.

Matt Harris with Louisiana State Police, Troop “G” says it was like searching for a needle in a haystack to find the origin of the explosion, according to KTBS.

“There’s no way to visually find it and being that it was dark and foggy you couldn’t really find a smoke cloud,” Harris said.

Citizens, however, are not buying those explanations. Digging only a little deeper, one sees the connection between north Louisiana’s Monday night explosion area and south Louisiana’s sinkhole area: The areas are joined by that water system of interconnected aquifers.

“Some reports say it was a ammunition bunker explosion, others say a meteor hit, other suggest military weapon tests,” Examiner reader Ron Bartlett commented Thursday. “[R]egardless, it was a massive explosion with lots of fire and with all this gas in the air, growing sink holes and underground high pressure oil and gas storage caverns – it could have set off of a chain reactions of explosions.”

Methane is in the Assumption Parish waterways, specifically the aquifer. Only eight days before the “Minden explosion,” on Oct. 8, it was reported that the methane gas pressure had become so high, it had reached an explosive level.

John Boudreaux, director of the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness has said there are concerns that the gas can build pressure under the clay layer that lies above the aquifer. Once the aquifer reaches a pressure greater than 75 to 85 pounds per square inch, the clay layer might not hold back the accumulated gas, according to Boudreaux and geologists.

“And then it could be a problem, because you do not know where the weak point would be until after it has already done its thing,” said Boudreaux.

Bartlett is only one of several citizens questioning the sinkhole methane and Camp Minden explosion connection.

On the popular Godlike Productions website, Rhonda Yocum wrote what she emailed to Dupré, “I pulled up Google Earth and stuck a pin in Minden, Lake Bistineau, Bayou Corne, and Lake Peigneur. I panned out to see exactly what these places might have in common…

“These 4 places are ALL located on the same aquifer,” Keller wrote.

(See Department of Environmental Quality aquifer map above and at http://map.ldeq.org/projects/images/misc/aquisys.jpg

“I believe that the methane is traveling up that aquifer (under enormous pressure) and that the meteor which was spotted by numerous people on the night of October 15th, impacted somewhere closer to Lake Bistineau and ignited a methane pocket, causing that massive explosion and percussion wave,” Yocum stated. “Residents closer to Lake Bistineau reported more intense damage, pressure wave, shaking…. than those in Minden.”

“A resident of the Lake Bistineau area reports that it almost shook their house off its foundation,” the News Star reported Tuesday.

Sheriff Gary Sexton said that, as he was driving in the Springhill-Cullen area, he saw two flashes from the south — before the blasts began.

“Earlier in the morning, Sexton said there was a ‘possibility that a meteor did hit the ground’ in the area, but that theory was put to rest with the confirmation of the blast at the Camp Minden bunker,” WAFB reported.

Numerous other eyewitness reports explained they saw what appeared to be meteors, with tails, falling before the blasts that occurred just before midnight.

“About this time here in Stephens City VA, while walking my dog I had seen what looked like a shooting star – it had a tail- or another star immediately (sic) behind it,” Maria Teresa commented Tuesday on the Examiner. “[If] you blinked, you missed it. I wonder if this is what I had seen. It was redder than a shooting star – or the second object was – just like a flash it was gone…”

“It was after 11, I am sure,” Teresa wrote. “[We} took the dog out for his last walk which we normally do… I had looked up right before it was gone. Don’t know if it means anything, but saw similar sight last night a lot earlier… same type of shooting start but only one – same place in sky – pretty prominent for the sky not to be dark yet,” she stated.

New York Daily News says the explosion was caused by military, not a meteorite. It also noted that military is investigating the explosions.

A visible meteorite shower had been predicted this week, peaking this weekend.

“A meteor shower spawned by history’s most famous comet will peak this weekend,” reports NBC News. “Orionid meteor shower to light up night skies this weekend,” its news article was titled.

Could there be more methane explosions in Louisiana this weekend?

“The Orionid meteor shower will reach its zenith overnight from Saturday to Sunday as Earth plows through debris shed by Halley’s Comet on its path around the sun,” NBC reports. “The most impressive display should come a few hours before dawn Sunday, when our planet hits the densest patch of Halley’s detritus.

“Flakes of comet dust hitting the atmosphere should give us dozens of meteors per hour,” said Bill Cooke, head of the Meteoroid Environment Office at NASA’s Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

If meteors struck the nation’s oil and gas capital, Louisiana, it is not beyond possibility that the hot materials could ignite methane if the methane is in the air, according to the physicists interviewed.

If a meteor were large enough to penetrate refinery tanks or pipelines, it could cause explosions. The same would occur if a meteor hit a munitions dump, such as the one at Camp Minden that exploded.

The Bayou Corne sinkhole disaster “is made all the more worrisome” because of a nearby Crosstex Energy LP’s “well containing 1.5 million barrels of liquid butane, a highly volatile liquid that turns into a highly flammable vapor upon release,” CNN has reported. Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said a breach of that well could be “catastrophic.”

Something unexpectedly triggered an emergency flare 40 feet high at that Crosstex well last week. An explosion at that well would be in the range of one and a half B83 thermonuclear (hydrogen) bombs, according to scientists.

“This is extremely serious,” Kim Torres, spokeswoman for the Office of Emergency Preparedness, told ABCNews.com. “The people are very aware of how serious this is.”

Aside from a plethora of oil refineries and oil and gas pipelines, Louisiana has two nuclear facilities.

The Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 nuclear facility, also known as Waterford 3, is a power plant on a 3,000-acre (12-km²) plot in Killona, Louisiana near New Orleans, about 50 miles from the Bayou Corne methane bubbling area.

River Bend Nuclear Generating Station is a nuclear power station on a 3,300-acre (13 km2) site near St. Francisville, Louisiana, about 67 miles from the methane-bubbling sinkhole area.

Both of Louisiana’s nuclear power facilities are located in the same aquifer tainted with methane.

Dutchsinse: 3/5/2012 — ENTIRE SOUTH and MIDWEST ! Steaming Plume event = be alert and aware


Uploaded by on Mar 5, 2012

Check the charts for the region.. THERE IT IS… same time as the plumes are appearing.. and stopping before the early AM !!! http://folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu/heli/heli_sp_mkta/

website post with multiple screenshots : http://sincedutch.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/352012-entire-south-and-midwest-st…

Today.. in Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas…..once again.. in the late afternoon…PLUMES APPEARING on Visible satellite — viewable from space — All erupting from the ground at the same time in the afternoon — yesterday only one or two — and now today we see WELL OVER 50 !!

The chances of “wildfires” all erupting AT THE SAME TIME over multiple states.. would either mean a network of arsonists, or a fairly well timed wildfire EACH DAY .. which then magically goes out overnight and half the day.. and then at sunset fires up again. Also, the chances of “control burns” all at the same time across multiple states .. again are minimal…

If its NOT a fire.. then what does that leave us with as an option for a plume from the ground visible from space that is NOT man made??

view it on the GOES visible satellite (1km or 2km product view)… http://weather.cod.edu/satrad/index.php

I have already formed my personal opinion on what I think may be causing these plumes — I believe the north american craton is in a state of unrest — that these plumes could EASILY be caused by the plate pressure … magma pressure underneath an already earthquake prone area ( and a long dormant volcanic chain in Arkansas extending into OK, TX, LA, MS, AL… even as far east as Georgia )

I am doubting official reports that these are ALL WILDFIRES… since early reports came in that these were ALL CONTROL BURNS DONE AT ONCE… then some other skeptics came to my prior videos and claimed these are “weather convenctions of moisture which just LOOKS like steam/smoke”…

I personally think this is the sign of an imminent geologic event of larger proportions. I HOPE I AM WRONG — but the last time THIS MANY plumes appeared (on the west coast from dormant volcanic sites).. we saw a 6.0M to the north.. and a 6.0M to the south of the area that was showing plume activity.

Past experience say to me, this!!

be prepared JUST IN CASE I’m right…. and lets hope that I’m totally wrong on thislocation of plumes seen in the 3/3 video:

35 14 21.13 N , 93 28 53.62 W location of the most current plume appearing on visible satellite = west of Sulphur Springs AR.

34°46’11.98″N , 94°11’33.94″W location of the 2nd plume (central west Arkansas) near the state line .
