Title: 10:50 a.m. Slough In on SW Side of Sinkhole

Date: October 9, 2012

There has been a 10′ x 50′ foot slough in of the sinkhole on the SW side (towards the pipeline right-of-way, the 50′ is along the embankment of the hole). Five trees were lost during this slough in. Clean up has been halted until further notice.

It appears this ‘pipeline right-of-way’ is a corridor referred to as the ‘grass road’ which was recently discussed here: [intlink id=”new-flyover-footage-shows-road-dissolving-into-giant-louisiana-sinkhole-video” type=”post”]{{empty}}[/intlink]

    United States could end up with a different shape. A skinnier one. Then maps would have to be redrawn, and books reprinted.

      With all of the "before Christ" as the last eruption, erupting volcanoes, I suspect we have lava movement underground, all across the planet. And geologists know that the hot lava seeks upward paths, gassing off pressure, especially into salt domes..made of swiss cheese..

      check the RSOE EDIS.. 7 volcanoes, just this month, that had last activity before Christ.. Mother Earth has more than a belly ache.. I suspect she is darn sick of us!

      Earth movement is the number one reason to shut down all Nuke plants, the number one reason to stop storing shit in salt domes, the number one reason not to bury nuclear waste etc etc etc..

      We need to pursue a path that includes living harmoniously within our environment.

      FYI Trolls, splitting the atom, is not harmony with nature.

      I keep seeing this navy map. The Authorities are wrong about everything else but right on this? What gives?

    If you want to survive then you need to pack up your family/pets and get out of LA. Do not wait for the officials to tell you to do this. Do not wait for a check for relocation assistance. Do not wait for them to figure out the cause. Let others keep you informed of your entitlements from a distance. Unfortunately to no fault of your own the air you are breathing is toxic (venting will make it more toxic) and the land that you live on is unstable. They have a lot of problems to solve and the reality of this situation is that you are not high up on the list right now (unfortunately). This disaster should be making national headlines on ALL of the major networks. It is not. If you choose to stay after this moment then make sure your affairs are in order, benificiaries designated etc. God Bless.
