Title: 10:30 a.m. Sinkhole Burp Reported
Source: Assumption Parish Police Jury
Date: May 7, 2013
Early this morning, there was a burp in the sinkhole. Dr. Hecox has reported that seismic monitors recorded a VLP (very long period seismic signal) at 3:24 a.m. and it is likely that this is when the burp happened. The monitoring/alert status remains at Code 3, which means all work directly on the sinkhoke, Oxy 3 pad and within the containment berm is ceased until further notice.
