Unless you're living in the area or have ties to it; for some reason the national news is leaving folks blissfully unaware of a HUGE danger literally bubbling up in Bayou Corne, Louisiana.
Entire towns have been evacuated for over 40 days now, with no hope and no answers as to when or if they'll ever get to live in their homes again.

The governor has declared a State of Emergency....weeks ago. And y'all haven't heard nary a blip.

8/11/2012 -- Louisiana Sink Hole Explained -- POSSIBLE HUGE CATASTROPHE -- 100 Hiroshimas

"Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said Thursday he is now concerned the sinkhole is close to a well containing 1.5 million barrels of liquid butane, a highly volatile liquid that turns into a highly flammable vapor upon release. A breach of that well, he said, could be catastrophic."

Please, sign the petition linked to the first video! This is some serious sheet!

"The sinkhole appeared August 3, more than two months after local residents started noticing bubbles in the water. The bubbles grew in number and frequency, and in some spots they made the bayou look like a boiling crawfish pot, said Dennis Landry, who owns guest cabins about half a mile from the hole."

http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/09/us/louisiana-ba...

This story from August 10th, posted to demonstrate that this is a ongoing and still developing situation. Methane is bubbling up in yards and waters in a several square mile area now, and new locations appear every day.

Is this really the best way of warning people?

I would think this would reach maybe 2% of a population of people that most don't even have electricity.

Sounds like a scam.

From yesterday;
Louisiana Sinkhole Continues to "Eat Up" More Land - Sep. 26, 2012


"...The police jury noted this area has never sloughed in before, as opposed to other areas that have sank into the hole...."

Now the liquid butane is 1450 feet away from the collapse....let some oxygen hit it, or some methane gas bubble up into it's subterranean storage...

NAPOLEONVILLE, LA (WAFB)- Work at the site of a giant sink hole in southeast Louisiana has once again come to a halt. This time the stoppage was caused by tremors in the area. This is not good news for residents near the sink hole.

It could be months before Bayou Corne residents who were evacuated last month are allowed to return home.

The mini earthquakes that came ahead of the sink hole in Assumption Parish are back.

Brant Smart is packing up his Jeep for an outdoor cookout at his camp in Mississippi, only he is not making a weekend trip to the woods. The Smarts have been living there since August 3.

"Basically a guy drove by in a truck and told us we had to evacuate," Smart said.

Around 150 homes in the Bayou Corne neighborhood were evacuated after a giant sinkhole opened up on the nearby Texas-Brine property. The Smarts have been camping out since.

"Now we're staying in my fifth wheel for the camp, us, our 15 year old and 2 dogs," Smart said.

Meanwhile, back at the sinkhole site, scientists have made another discovery that could keep residents out of their homes for an undetermined amount of time.

"They got down to 90 feet and experienced gas in the water aquifer and were unable to set water well due to the pressure. We put cement, plug, and got off the site and regrouped to come up with another strategy to set a vent well," John Boudreaux explained.

Boudreaux, director for the Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness, said workers must replace the rig they have been working from with one that will allow them to vent the gas from the well.

They still do not know where the gas is coming from. Boudreaux said residents will not be allowed to return home until the gas is under control.

If history repeats itself, that could mean sometime next year.

"Back in 2003/2004, a similar process was done here on the Napoleonville Dome and it did take several months," Boudreaux recalled.

The Smarts plan to build a new home in Mississippi. But they can't sell their home in Bayou Corne until Texas-Brine gives them the all clear.

The new well is expected to be assembled and operational by the weekend.

Bayou Corne residents in Assumption Parish will hold an emergency Town Hall meeting Thursday, September 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the St Joseph the Worker Church Hall on the emergency situation status regarding the large sinkhole and unexplained natural gas venting.

The residents have called the meeting out of an abundance of concern and caution for the lack of real-time information from the Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness (OEP), Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Texas Brine Co., the company in charge of the suspect cavern inside the Napoleonville Salt Dome.

You are nowhere near Louisiana, as if! LOL! This is your adopted cyber locale, and it is in GRAVE and growing danger; yet not a peep from you in over a month and a half as it has developed. You google and mention New Iberia's Sugar Festival queen, but not a peep about entire towns evacuated just south of there. This threatens the paradise that is south-central LA, where you claim to live; <guffaw>, they have just discovered that Texas Brine is storing NORM (hint, the 'R' stands for radioctive) in the closed salt cavern that has collapsed, thousands of folks showed for a town hall meeting two nights ago, that not one official attended....all these events and not one peep from you.
Like the time you showed you didn't know that Breaux Bridge was a town on the western end of a 20+ miles long bridge, lol@u!

Too late Freakbird Rosa Whatever You Are, lol.

Now back to the intent of the thread, I have friends and loved ones who live in possible affected areas. Using the internet as the wonderful communication and informational that it is, imagine that!

Anyway, signing this petition and sharing this info and the link to the petition with your friends is the only thing we can do right now to try to help avert what could be a horrid disaster!
An explosion of that magnitude could set off the New Madrid quake,(which just had a tremor today, BTW).
I've been watching this creepy little story for awhile now...<shudders> who needs Halloween? lol

I gotta be missing something... Why is it a bad thing for Paisley to post a warning? Even if it's slightly old data with limited exposure, what harm is she doing?

Geeze do people need to get a life.

Hello there. Notice my last link is from a newscast from yesterday. This is a developing situation with the authorities either not sharing data, or not knowing it.
The butane, that's the acute issue here; the sinkholes and bubbling methane is part of larger developing geological situation that if you're interested, I'll post links to. I find it fascinating, a LOT is happening right now.
I'm out the door, it's dried up enough to go work outside.
TGIF!

No harm, just not so sure this is an emergency. I can't find anything online other than a few short quips (as I posted earlier) and what's been posted on Topix. You'd think something of this magnitude would get top billing on the national emergency broadcast network.

Btw - I never said it was a bad thing - it's just that I wouldn't use Topix as my first and only avenue to warn residents of impending doom - especially in Bayou Corne, Louisiana.

No way is it my first and only; been tweeting and retweeting, FB sharing and updating, and posts in a few other places. Amazing thing about cyberspace, a ripple can increase into a wave exponentially.
There are folks from the region on here, that I have no other contact with, that I'd like to know about this.
Thanks for your input up there, BTW. Watch the minutes of that townhall meeting for a real eye opener...this could get BIG.
The links to it are under the vid with the petition. There's a LOT you're not seeing in the news. Have a good Friday.:-)

If I had a bunch of friends here and knew a few might be in that area I'd be inclined to post the same. Well, maybe. But I can see why someone would. We can differ about whether it constitutes a real emergency or not... Kind of no harm done, near as I can tell.

But in your original post you wanted to evacuate the entire SE. I'm not so sure the people in Atlanta or Burmingham would take kindly being moved because of a sink hole problem in Louisiana - just MO. We have bigger sinkholes in our city streets up here. If you live on a salt dome, sooner or later its going to collapse.

I did not mean to be confusing; of course I don't think we should evacuate the southeast, lol. We should sign the petition and get Federal attention and management of this problem before it becomes a LOT larger. I mean, Texas Brine is looking out for Texas Brine, and the locals are looking to cover their arses and aren't showing up at planned town meetings where many folks waited to talk to them.
The 'Dallas Police' are in charge, lol.
