[quote:psyoptics:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMzNjExMzY1X0Y3RTk0RThG] [b][u]DNR scientists have said they suspected that the cavern failed[/u], leaked its brine contents and caused the sinkhole, which is about 475 feet wide and about 200 feet from the salt cavern.[/b] http://theadvocate.com/home/3985701-125/parish-officials-question-findings-by so now the truth is coming out and this is not good! as the powers involved start pointing their fingers in every direction this issue grows worse with every fleeting moment! do we know what it down there? do we know how much new damage has been caused be all the new holes they have made? and the most important question..... [b]WHAT THE HECK ARE THE GOING TO DO TO STOP THIS![/b] [b]and a lovely side note:[/b] [b]“USGS, we spoke to them today. They stated plainly to us today, the folks from USGS, that [u]the cavern collapse caused the seismic activity[/u], not the other way around,” Chustz said.[/b] so i would rather have been told the earth moved and caused the sinker... this is not good if the sinker is moving the earth! so if there is a larger collapse how might that effect the ground and faults in the area? and now more the question....if this thing does blow.... well if it blows i think it would be safe to say there would be some large earth movements! [b]this is not play out well at all....and still there seems to be quite the MSM blackout on all of this!!!![/b] [/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."
