Sinkhole: H-Bomb explosion equivalent in Bayou Corne possible

Louisiana sinkhole residents evacuate for at least a month

RE: Louisiana Sinkhole Issue

Quote:Two workers rescued from Louisiana sinkhole
Two workers were rescued Thursday after at least 50 feet of earth collapsed into a sinkhole that appeared nearly two weeks ago in Assumption Parish, Louisiana, officials said.
The workers were on a boat that was tied to a tree when the land gave way, trapping them on the vessel, police spokeswoman Kim Torres told CNN in a telephone interview An airboat rescued them soon after; neither worker was hurt, she said.
In a statement, the company doing work on the site said the workers escaped from the sinkhole, which widened 50 more feet Thursday and is as big as a football field.
But the Houston-based Texas Brine Company, which owns the property, about an hour's drive west of New Orleans, said the workers sailed on the airboat away from the affected area before the collapse.
The situation is all the more worrisome because the hole is believed to be close to a well containing 1.5 million barrels of butane, a volatile liquid that turns into a flammable vapor upon release.
About 150 households have been evacuated, a state official said.
The widening of the sinkhole was no surprise. It "has been predicted by experts and has been gradually occurring since it first formed," said Texas Brine in a statement.
Torres said the two workers are employed by Clean Harbors, which describes itself as "the leading provider of environmental, energy and industrial services and the largest hazardous waste disposal company in North America."
Texas Brine Spokesman Sonny Cranch said the workers were removing debris floating in the sinkhole when at least one person aboard a rescue boat saw the land fall in and "immediately moved to a safer area, which happened to be a nearby airboat."
Authorities were investigating the cause of the hole, which has swallowed cypress trees up to 100-feet tall. The company has said that a nearby salt cavern could be to blame.
The cleanup operations that the rescued workers were involved in have been suspended as a precaution. Cranch said, "We don't want anyone in harm's way."

RE: Louisiana Sinkhole Issue
The book "SALT" revealed to me that England had suffered from a era of sinkholes. They were being caused by large volumes of ground material (salt brine) being mined out and leaving voids in the bedrock. At any time whole city blocks would collapse into sinkholes. The salt mine operation could be miles away but they were deemed responsible and were prosecuted.

Quote:Sinkhole radiation 15 times over limit, residents urged to record health signs
A non-government group is urging Bayou Corne sinkhole area residents to use a new record log as a veteran radiation expert says Louisiana environmental officials are “in denial” over hazards posed by elevated radium levels that are actually fifteen times higher than the state limit, a "worst nightmare coming true," according to an environmental attorney.

Stanley Waligora, a New Mexico-based radiation protection consultant and leading authority on health risks of naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) has confirmed that radium levels at Bayou Corne's sinkhole are not within safe limits, but instead, roughly 15 times higher than the state's acceptable level, according to one of the nation's leading environmental attorney's Stuart Smith.

State officials are saying NORM is is below hazardous levels, but the independent findings indicate other actions need to be taken, including residents using Louisiana Environmental Action Network's report logs to record signs and symptoms of ill health.

The information about radium is buried in a state news release, poorly written, "and goes out of its way to downplay the results," Smith said Wednesday.

This week, after state officials released the results of samples taken 80 feet under the surface of the growing, slurry-filled pit, Marco Kaltofen, a civil engineer and president of Boston Chemical Data Corp., noted those results posted by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, or DEQ, show elevated rates of NORM in the sinkhole.

NORM is a frequent byproduct of the oil and gas drilling process, creating wastes that industry has often then dumped improperly, according to Smith who specializes in this area of environmental law.

Kaltofen’s analysis of the situation in Bayou Corne includes:

"Radium in the body is absorbed because it is chemically similar to calcium. The normal maximum guideline level for radium in surface water is 5 picoCuries per liter, (pCi/L). The state’s testing found 82 pCi/L in the water of the growing sinkhole. Radium gives off alpha' radiation. This form of radiation is extremely dangerous if inhaled or ingested, and less dangerous if exposed by skin contact."

When radium decays, it produces the dangerous radioactive gas, radon. EPA warns that radon gas causes lung cancer, and exposure can be as hazardous to your lungs as a serious cigarette habit.

"Waligora said officials with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality need to launch immediate additional testing to ensure that the hazardous radium is not leaking into nearby groundwater and posing a threat to human health as well as livestock," Smith has stated Friday.

Waligora's recommendations come two days after Smith's blog first reported that analysis of DEQ test results from Bayou Corne, posted by the LEANouisiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN), revealed elevated radium levels and airborne chemicals associated with highly volatile butane stored by Crosstex in a cavern near the sinkhole.

They also come two days after Homeland Security Louisiana announced that officials are stepping up around-the-clock emergency operations near Bayou Corne's sinkhole, including extra Hazardous Materials & Explosive Units.

LEAN, after reporting lethal contaminants found in the sinkhole area, is urging residents to use the new report log it has for recording signs and symptoms of poisoning, as reported by the Examiner on Wednesday.

The Advocate reports Friday, "In two statements released Tuesday, LEAN noted air monitoring by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality since Aug. 4 over the sinkhole and in the neighborhoods near the sinkhole had picked up, depending on the location, benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, other volatile organic compounds and components of natural gas."

'Worst nightmare coming true,' says attorney

If the butane in the sinkhole vicinity exploded, it would meet, according to the National Terror Alert, the definition of a dirty bomb.

"I sought an analysis of the recent DEQ test results from Waligora, who since a stint as a nuclear weapons officer in the U.S. military has been teaching, consulting and testifying as an expert witness in radiation litigation for more than 45 years," asserted Smith Friday.

He expressed concern that the state reported its findings of radium-226 and radium-228 as "below acceptable levels," when in fact, the results were 15 times higher than the state’s own standard for soil contamination.

“Well, once again the Louisiana DEQ is in denial because they don’t know what to do about the radioactive contamination in the Bayou Corne subsidence,” Waligora wrote, adding the following findings:

There are immediate radiation dose concerns, not only cumulative toxin concerns.

"The release could reach the usable aquifer and contaminate drinking water along with livestock and irrigated crops," Waligora says. "The DEQ must sample ground water to assess any transport. Airborne particulate might become entrained and cause contamination to be inhaled by the public. DEQ must collect air samples to assess the airborne radioactive particulate. Radon gas emanating from the radium could be inhaled by members of the public. DEQ needs to monitor airborne radon.

"A long range plan must be developed for remedial action. Funding should be provided by the oil companies that used the cavern for disposal," asserted Waligora.

Waligora reports being concerned about DEQ understating of the Bayou Corne risks because of what he has witnessed in other cases handled by the troubled agency:

"This is reminiscent of the illegal waste disposal that was discovered several years ago at St. Gabriel. The community complained about illegal disposal of radioactive waste. DEQ sent a team to investigate who determined that there was no problem. Complaints continued and a second DEQ team investigated and again said that there was no problem. Finally, a legal action attracted the EPA who found widespread contamination. The responsible party had no worth so the site was cleaned up with Superfund support. The cleanup took over one year and cost over $1million. Quite a bit for 'no problem.'”

Earlier this year, Smith joined the Louisiana Bucket Brigade in calling for the EPA to intervene and assume responsibility from DEQ because the agency was "overwhelmed and "in the back pocket of the businesses it’s supposed to be regulating."

"Although company officials informed the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources in early 2011 of significant problems at the cavern, local residents and authorities were not told of the risk even after they began complaining this summer of shaking homes and noxious orders," Smith says.

National Terror Alert (NTA) recently reported that due to recent terrorist events, people have expressed concern about a possible terrorist attack involving radioactive materials, possibly through the use of a “dirty bomb,” and the harmful effects of radiation from such an event.

The NTA developed a dirty bomb fact sheet including:

"A dirty bomb, or radiological dispersion device, is a bomb that combines conventional explosives, such as dynamite, with radioactive materials inthe form of powder or pellets. The idea behind a dirty bomb is to blast radioactive material into the area around the explosion. This could possibly cause buildings and people to be exposed to radioactive material. The main purpose of a dirty bomb is to frighten people and make buildings or land unusable for a long period of time.

"In Bayou Corne, we are witnessing our worst nightmares coming true," Smith asserted Friday. "It’s time for the EPA and other outside authorities to step in and make sure that proper testing is done and that emergency measures are carried out."

The sinkhole, now the size of three football fields, shaped like an upside-down Superdome Stadium, and filled with liquid slurry is blamed on Texas Brine Co.'s failed salt cavern near Bayou Corne.

"There’s no excuse for allowing this new Louisiana catastrophe to get any worse," Smith says.

Louisiana sinkhole, bubbles, 1000s quakes link to oil, gas ENMOD

Louisiana sinkhole
August 14, 2012

University seismologist sheds light on mystery sinkhole and related rights abuses. Gas bubbles, 1000s of recent quakes and giant sinkhole ‘quite possibly’ have same source: oil and gas industry environmental modifications

On Monday, as officials warned an explosion is possible from gas in Louisiana’s sinkhole area where radioactive waste has been pumped into a cavern and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) authorized drilling a new well in the danger sinkhole zone, a seismologist told the Examiner that seismic activity exists in that zone and that fossil fuel industries’ environmental modifications (ENMODs) causing the gas bubbles, giant sinkhole and thousands of quakes resulting in the State of Emergency, is a “real possibility.”

Reported diagnostic tests from federal, state and local officials and industry pinpoint no source of the sinkhole or gas bubbling bayous, but seismologist Dr. Stephen Horton says the link between those events and oil and gas industry ENMODs in south Louisiana is a "real possibility."

“The sinkhole and bubbles may be caused by the same thing,” Dr. Horton told the Examiner Monday.

Seismic activity is being detected from Louisiana’s giant sinkhole area, according to Horton, whose work at University of Memphis involves monitoring the New Madrid fault line for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) as well as the Louisiana disaster.

Have fossil fuel industries in Louisiana, through their ENMODs caused today’s geological instabilities that have resulted in this disaster?

“Possibly – I think that’s a real possibility,’ Horton told Deborah Dupré on Monday.

“DNR – they’re the big players here,” Horton said. “They don’t think the sinkhole caused the bubbles. The bubbles were there before the sinkhole.”

So were thousands of earthquakes before the giant sinkhole developed, according to Horton.

Sinkhole developed day after quakes stopped

“On July 24th, the number of quakes went up hundreds or thousands or so a day until August 2nd when they stopped,” Horton said. “The next day, August 3rd, the sinkhole occurred – that morning.”

Seismometers picked up thousands of quakes in the Assumption Parish disaster area since June, according to Horton. He and colleagues had installed four instruments underground to record quake activities, and since then, two more, each monitored daily.

Monday, DNR issued a permit to the company possibly partially responsible for causing the disaster, Texas Brine Company to investigate the problem by drilling into the sinkhole area.

"We have to arrange for the driller. We have to pick a location. We have to be very careful to not be in a point that's too close to the sinkhole because of the weight of the rig," Texas Brine Company spokesman Sonny Cranch told Monday. "We don't want to aggravate the situation."

Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said last week that his greatest worry is a nearby butane well exploding.

"That's why the mandatory evacuation is going to stay on, because there is a risk for explosion," John Boudreaux of Assumption Parish Emergency Preparedness said last Tuesday at a meeting with residents, WBRZ reported.

Locals say their greatest worry is the explosion and cover ups, not being well enough informed about matters such as the Texas Brine cavern near the sinkhole having radioactive waste pumped into it and the massive butane-filled well only 1500 feet from that salt cavern.

Anyone with information on bubbling gas locations or potential origin of them is asked to contact Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness at (985) 369-7386.

Because locals reported feeling quakes and small damages, along with subsequent technical equipment, much is known now about the disaster, according to Horton. People reported quakes on June 8 and July 3, so he and others installed seismic facilities in the Bayou Cornes area on July 12.

“It’s kind of technology and people coming together as partners that makes us know what we know now.”

Asked if USGS records ENMOD-caused quakes as it does natural quakes, Horton answered, referring to the recent quakes in Louisiana, “They would not have been recorded at USGS because they attenuate quickly because of where they were.

“We were surprised there were quakes large enough to be felt and had done damage but not recorded. They were picked up by a program at the national seismologist that didn’t initially see or report them," Horton explained. “The signal was there but may not have gone above the noise level.

"USGS then looked and said, 'Yes, there have been tremors there,' he explained, adding, “USGS likes to use the word ‘tremors’ for quakes.”

Quakes ended when bubbling sinkhole developed but seismic signals continue from sinkhole area

“Sharp tremors stopped the day the sinkhole occurred and there has been no resumption of them,” he said.

Seismic signals, however, continue in the sinkhole area, according to Horton.

The 372 feet diameter sinkhole is centered in the “worst-case scenario area” in the Napoleanville Salt Dome, the Advocate reports.

DNR’s Kumar said “the worst-case area displayed is a smaller area than the 2,000-foot worst-case scenario that parish and state officials feared Friday was a possibility when a mandatory evacuation was ordered for the Bayou Corne community,” The Advocate reported in a separate article Monday.

While strong quake activities have halted, Horton told the Examiner, “There are seismic signals that appear to emanate from the vicinity of the in the Napoleonville salt dome, in the low amplitude range.

“I don’t know what they are or what they mean seismically, but they are happening.”

One of the reasons it’s hard to pinpoint this is "a lot of plants have more than one pipe coming into their operations,” Louisiana Chemical Association President Dan Borné said, according to The Advocate on Monday. “They get their natural gas from more than one supplier, and the suppliers can also reroute their gas depending on the capacity of various pipelines.”

The Advocate reported that Borné declined naming the plants affected.

DNR ordered Texas Brine to evaluate the structural integrity of the salt cavern and begin remediating any problems in the seismic activity area.

Lessons learned?

An explosion from a natural gas pocket or from a nearby salt cavern failing and releasing flammable gas is possible, stated John Boudreaux, director of Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

Eighty miles west of Bayou Corne is Lake Peigneur that balances above a salt dome that collapsed in 1980 when a drilling rig punctured a protective layer in the salt mine wall, causing the entire lake, including a drilling rig, several larges barges and large chunks of surrounding land to be pulled down into the cavern.

Pressure was so great, the bayou ran backwards, created a large waterfall, and was sucked back into the puncture hole.

Scientist Dr. Wilma Subra, award-winning human rights defender worked extensively on the Lake Peigneur incident and has done so for several decades. She suspects drilling too close to the edge of the salt might have compromised the Bayou Corne cavern.

Subra was excluded from meetings of scientists last Monday. She worries for the safety of the surrounding communities.

Assumption Parish Police Jury continues monitoring Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou waterway bubbles. Officials report no explosive risk is detected from any of the bubbling sites in the giant sinkhole area. Drilling equipment will start arriving in the area late Wednesday or early Thursday and drilling is scheduled to begin a few days later.

“I do think from the standpoint of emergency management, this disaster has been handled very well," Horton told Dupré, adding, "considering what they know."

RE: Louisiana Sinkhole Issue
I really appreciate the heads up on this issue.

I'm personally still of the opinion that, due to the richness of natural resources on the gulf coast and in the gulf itself, along with the geopolitical strategic advantage of holding the area with militaristic types, (as well as the decimation of the tourist and fishing trade around it,) especially considerinig the the importation and activation of contractors like Haliburton and the artist-formerly-known-as-Blackwater, many of the environmentally catastrophic situations since Katrina have been manufactured.

Unlike many in this community, I don't believe the US has the (realized) capability of manufacturing catagory 5 hurricaines, unlike my surety that our tech can create earthquakes and tsunamis through extremely low or high frequency "soundwaves" or kinetic frequency vibrations focused through directed amplification. Shaking the earth is a bit different in terms of environmental influence than causing massive winds and moisture to swirl at intense velocities and move in pre-planned directions starting out off the coast of Africa.

Landfall of a hurricaine like Katrina was pretty much guaranteed. The Louisiana coast and surrounding areas (including the western coast of florida,) have been prety much ignored as far as infrastructure and geological stability since at least as far back as 1965 (when the standards for the NOLA levee system were decided upon, during the red scare when people were scared shitless of Cuba, ) but the understanding that the nearby atlantic coast was subject to hugely extreme weather was understood as far back as 1927 when the project to buffer sea-going lanes along the east coast of the US was undertaken by the US Army Corps of Engineers to create the Intracoastal Waterway (among other places,) along the eastern coast of Florida - The same group that built the levees in Louisiana.

So, back to the original crux of my impetus to post - The intention is to create a scare large enough for the normal citizens to evacuate, leaving the area free to new-colonial settlement by military and military contractors. Ihe L(ouisian)APD and various law enforcement (no abbreviations necessary,) agencies, especially the ones with a history of beating the shit out of innocent civillians, have a cozy home to return or relocate to. The end-game could be internment, but most likely, a large-scale atlantic equitorial devision of NORTHCOM, who have yet to establish a North/South border outpost beyond Puero Rico that isn't guantanamo.

I can pretty much guarantee that even if Romney wins the election, (which I doubt - Obama's been too cozy with the real criminals to have his puppet-strings cut,) gitmo won't be shut down until NOLA and the surrounding area is turned into a massive, collaborative military base.

RE: Louisiana Sinkhole Issue
Has anyone seen the latest forecast for Hurricane Issac ? Looks like it taking a beeline right to New Orleans....

[Image: 400x266_08262033_page-1.jpg]

City of New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu has declared a state of emergency in response to the threat of fierce winds and high tides from Isaac.

He stated that he wants everyone in the city of New Orleans to begin preparing for the storm, according to The Times-Picayune.

The mayor held a press conference at city hall at 2:45 p.m., CDT.

Voluntary evacuations are in effect in Louisiana. Mandatory evacuations may begin tomorrow.

A state of emergency has also been declared for Jefferson, St. Charles and Plaquemines parishes.

The Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-West will close non-essential flood gates on the West Bank in preparation for Isaac's approach.

Residents in low-lying areas outside of levee protection are advised to listen to the current reports on Isaac and be prepared for effects from the storm.

Isaac is current a tropical storm with sustained winds of 60 mph and gusts of up to 70 mph. Isaac is expected to reach hurricane status after strengthening over the warm gulf waters.

Isaac is expected to make landfall sometime Tuesday night, possibly as a Category 2 hurricane.

The hurricane is headed STRAIGHT for the sinkhole !!!
AND... it's the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina! Crazy

Quote:Eye of Hurricane Isaac aims for sinkhole
Bayou Corne sinkhole on Tuesday.

"We apologize for contacting you this late," began an audio advisory from Assumption Parish officials at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday evening.

The officials wanted to advise about the Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness 10:00 p.m. briefing. The update was based on the National Hurricane Center.

"The latest update puts the track of Hurricane Isaac right over Assumption Parish," the advisory states.

"By 6:00 a.m., we should be experiencing tropical storm force winds," the officials advised.

"At noon, the forecast shows we will experience the strongest winds as the forecast predicts the eye wall to be right over us at that time," the parish alert states.

Sustained winds are to be at 70 miles with gusts 90 to 100 miles an hours at the eyewall and endure until 9:00 p.m. The expected rainfall is 7 inches, according to the officials.

"We shall experience strongest winds and rains from noon until 9:00 p.m."

Parish officials have recently stated that they worry about a possible explosion related to the sinkhole since there is a large butane well in the same salt dome as the Texas Brine Co. storage cavern that is believed to be failing.

The officials advised Tuesday evening that emergency vehicles, such as Acadian Ambulance and fire department vehicles will not respond once winds are sustained at 50 miles an hours.

Officials urged all residents to shelter in place and to observe the curfew that begins at midnight.

There was no mention regarding the sinkhole in the official public alert following the briefing.

On Aug. 3, after months of thousands of earthquakes and multiple sites of percolating gas bubbles in the nearby bayous, the earth opened, swallowing trees over one hundred feet tall and gulping land along with them into a bubbling sinkhole.

A mandatory evacuation of the nearby Bayou Corne community was called.

There has been no definitive answer about what has caused the sinkhole, that has now grown to the size of three football fields, nor the methane bubbles in the bayous at the now more than a dozen sites.

Since the event, houses have been damaged and some residents have reported experiencing what appears to be signs of chemical poisoning.

Hurricane Isaac made landfall over southeastern Louisiana on Tuesday night, bringing sustained winds of 80 mph and torrential rains. Isaac has already left 150,000 homes without power.

While Isaac's steam might not slow down for a while because much of the widespread storm will be over 80 degree water several more hours and it is moving slowly.

Coincidence or Conspiracy? Already they jacked up the price of gas in the midwest, how convenient.
In New Orleans, there are curfews in effect, many areas without power, flooding, wind damage, tornadoes around the NOL area.

If anyone wants to listen to live coverage of the hurricane direct from New Orleans. You can listen to the official go to station WWL 870 New Orleans on the AM band. When it gets dark you can pick them up on the 'night skip' if you live within 700 to 1000 miles of the station. If not, see below...

Also listen to live coverage on the internet on

This makes for very compelling listening. Remember they are Central Time if you are following the time for planned announcements by officials. Give it a listen.

RE: Louisiana Sinkhole Issue
Still listening to the live storm coverage of Hurricane Issac on WWL from New Orleans. The southern part of nearby city Slidell is going to be evacuated, in some areas ...some rivers and streams will crest as much as 5 to 10 feet over flood stage over the next couple of days.

There is still debris throughout the area and lot of people are still without power. This means no power, no gas stations operating, stores are closed. Temperatures will climb into the 90's in the next couple of days, with no air conditioning due to no power will make it rough for many. It is going to get worse the next couple of days from the floods and the lack of essentials. The storm is now 110 miles NW of New Orleans.

WWL has done a first class job reporting on the storm, they have been getting officials on the air, reporting what streets and highways are flooded out, and sometimes resolving questions on the air between callers and officials. I have actually heard some of the reporters say 'God Bless' on the air...This is one of the few exceptions when major media has done their job.

Perhaps if one wants an idea of what a SHTF scenario is going to be like, this could be a fair example ...and listening live as it happens makes for compelling listening. For our friends in Louisiana our thoughts and prayers go out and hoping for a safe and quick recovery.
