    Holy crap! That's one big toxic swamp now! Great location for a remake of Swamp Thing.

    We can get our honorable Ms. Clinton to play Adrienne Barbeau's role.

    Homes can be seen..2000 ft.from the sinkhole..
    Evacuated.. I assume.
    I think it is also safe to assume..they will never be going home.

    Borrow one of the ROVs from BP and send it down the sinkhole to take a look. If it comes shooting out of the seabed near Macando next week, we'll have established a link.

    I'm guessing its going to come out changed. Different somehow…EVIL!

    I *do* wish they would prepare a better contour map of the sinkhole bottom. There could be plenty more of the west side slumping in to the drain even if there's nothing draining anymore. Seems there was still a few million cubic yards to go to even things up.

    wow, the drilling pad is surrounded, and the pad further back occurs to be sinking on the right.. the grassy area, with holding pond thing.. has puddles to the right and above it, and I predict, all of the trees between there and the bigger sinkhole site will slough into the hole. be sure to watch..carefully as they skirt this and I had to go back a few times to be sure I was seeing what I thought I was seeing…

    Kintaman this is in the U.S. state of Lousiana. Assumption Parish, St.Mary parish, and Terrebonne parish rivers empty into the Gulf of Mexico. There is also a concern about the Mississippi river flooding or becoming unmanageable during a crisis.
