[/quote] You don't require a big ones. The little ones work just as well. There have been swarms of them again. Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick.................. [/quote] Earthquake of Dome collapse or is this kind of the same thing? Forgive my ignorance on this topic? [/quote] this chart is the "tremors" going on inside the cavern. (the cavern is directly under the measuring instrument) i suppose you can call them "very super small earthquakes". but they are very super small (low energy) tremors that are being caused by the unstable broken rock stuctures inside the cavern (huge multi thousand ton rock structures creaking and cracking slipping slightly) (and, note: if you had another similar seismograph 3 miles away from the site there would be no readings at all. that's how low energy they are) but all of these tremors are clear indications that the cavern structure is very unstable and will probably collapse again. http://folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu/heli_temp/LA01_BHZ_GS_00.2012092612.gif [/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."
