[quote:Paa Tal:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMzNzU2MjUxXzc5NjBGRUJF] Wednesday, some people in the Gulf parishes reported hearing a loud noise similar to thunder accompanying the quakes. “My wife described it as sounding like a garbage truck had just dropped a dumpster,” Comardelle said. “It was clear outside, and then we felt more tremors,” Comardelle said, having joined neighbors outside looking for signs of what was causing the jolts. Rafael Abreu, a geophysicist with USGS, said the earth’s crust is riddled with fault lines, and people often report hearing such a loud noise when they are near the epicenter of a quake. Boudreaux said that the National Guard reported having no fly-overs that could have caused sonic booms. He called multiple oil-field facilities, but none had an explanation. http://www.examiner.com/article/mysterious-tremors-45-miles-from-sinkhole [/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."
