[quote:Anonymous Coward 21447290:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMyNzE3MzI5X0QyNzM0MDZE] http://www.examiner.com/article/bayou-sinkhole-radioactive-dome-issues-covered-up-over-a-year Bayou Sinkhole: Radioactive dome issues covered up over a year Bayou Corne sinkhole disaster August 9, 2012 New evidence shows Bayou Corne oil and gas sinkhole disaster cover up violates human right to security As officials were telling Louisiana bayou people to not worry and little more, Louisiana Department of Natural Resources and Texas Brine Co. officials have known for over a year that the company's salt dome cavern had radioactive materials pumped into it and might have problems, according to government regulatory files uncovered Wednesday. The salt dome is now suspected of causing the expanding 160,000 square feet sinkhole and natural gas venting in Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou area swamps. For over two months, as gas bubbles and tremors rattled Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou swampland and residents' human rights, DNR and other officials asking for patience knew they had given permission to have radioactive materials pumped into the salt dome, and they had been testing oil and gas wells and other salt caverns due to problems, according to the Advocate's David J. Mitchell of River Parishes bureau Thursday morning. [/quote]
The initially estimated 200 by 200 feet sinkhole that developed late last week, swallowing ancient cypress trees 100 feet tall near Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou communities in south Louisiana, is now reported to be 380 feet deep with a diameter of 372 feet, filled mainly with salt water with traces of diesel fuel, and only 1,500 feet from a cavern filled with butane, according to Tuesday morning news. Analysts' reports further hint that Texas Brine Company's cavern failed, but the butane cavern failing is today's worst-case scenario.
If a nearby butane-filled cavern fails, as it appears the brine cavern did,
"it could cause an explosion felt up to two miles away."
