A massive sinkhole developed in a small community south of Baton Rouge, Louisiana five months ago, leaving 300 residents with nowhere to go. Host Ric Young talks with reporter Mike Ludwig on the disaster:
At 3:45 in
Mike Ludwig, Reporter: […] a particular problem for geologist because they’ve dealt with sinkholes before, but they’ve never had to deal with one that’s unleashed so much oil and gas into rock formations and into the environment. [...]
I talked to someone and he lives in the neighborhood, his name is Nick Romero. He told me that sometimes in the morning he can smell this heavy stench creeping into his home.
