[quote:Anonymous Coward 20632801:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMyNzE4OTU0X0I2NzczRjk3] [quote:Anonymous Coward 18850150:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMyNzE3MjkxXzNFOUU3QkEz] . If there is a huge earthquake at the New Madrid rift, it could destroy bridges along the Mississippi River and totally disrupt east/west commercial and military transit. And also the huge network of oil/gas pipelines in the region. And what the earthquake does not physically destroy, it will destroy economically. Such an event would severely restrict US military actions around the world. Many troops now being used on foreign soil would be forced to return home. It would be an opportune time for others to take advantage of a wounded giant. . [/quote] That's crazy. Nobody is going to attack the US except for Mexico, and they already are. [/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."
