Locals are reporting more gas bubbles in Grand Bayou.
Officials at the Assumption Parish Police Jury said Tuesday a small bubble site was discovered near a massive sinkhole in Assumption Parish. Residents have been reporting other gas bubbles and tremors in the area for months.
Last Friday, the two workers nearly fell into the sinkhole and cleanup activities were suspended. The parish has asked Texas Brine to provide a plan for future cleanup activities.

Well, it's definitely growing. Been following this on Google maps (Gumbo Street, Belle Rose, LA), a white parking pad to the immediate southeast. This is the same parking pad seen in the flyover. Before this video, the parking pad had not been in contact with the water. Now it's bordering it on two sides, north and west. And the right of way cut on the far side of the sink hole is much wetter. Pretty soon, they will have an access problem. Could be why they are closing activity and pulling back.
Thanks for your observations re size – the parking pad is a good indicator. As to outlying (cut line) wetness – I noticed that but somewhere I picked up they'd had rains, so figured that was the explanation. All the same – rain won't help! Thanks again.
It does seem to bulge in the center. It could be floating debris/trees and such, BUT some pressure of some sort looks to be pushing it above water level. And the amount of water near the pad is more than just rain. Wonder what in the world….add to that radium and other "NORM" radioactive storage products..gives one a great safe feeling at night. The residents of the area are going to need relocation, new homes, new businesses, and much more…Hope Texas Brine has good insurances and good bank accounts!
