Title: Update: Bayou Corne Sinkhole/Community Tour By Local Resident~
Source: rainbeaudais*
Date Published: Dec 4, 2012

At 2:30 in

Back there’s the subdivision with 27, I think, houses in it. Almost 100 percent of the people, I know of 3 homes that have evacuated. The rest of the people did choose to stay.

At 3:50 in

[Closer to sinkhole] All these people stayed.

*Update from Resident: “In my video, I pointed out one subdivision (27 homes) behind the command center and a few homes on the highway, and made the comment that only 3 homes that I knew of, had evacuated. I was referring only to that particular area of the community, NOT the entire community, which consists of over 150 homes, and of which approx 75% have evacuated.” See aerial view pic http://www.flickr.com/photos/assumptionoep/8135804376/in/photostream.The goal of my statement was to debunk a statement made that it is a “ghost town”, and thus IMO, leave homes vulnerable to invasion (Click here to read more)”

    I do not want my name mentioned in your video. Doing so is a violation of my privacy since I did not approve of you doing so. And further more the info in my video is very accurate! You make a deliberate statement to contest the accuracy of my video. There was no point in mentioning my name in your video other than to continue harassing me! I suggest you edit your video and remove my name asap.

      Oh for God's sake, grow up. Rainbow gave us the actual view of the community we have all been looking for. It is chilling. At this time of year the water will rise and rise, and why I coined the name of Lake Oxy 3.
      It was one thing in the summer when the water level is low, but it is still rising and sending hydrocarbons and total dissolved solids, as well as chlorides, running through their canals all over. Then, there will be no water to drink and their lands are poisoned.
      I applaud Rainbow for her efforts and for her helping us to understand that these folks world just came to an abrupt halt. According to the Police Jury, then they will now force TB to buy all of the homes out, for even they see that this is a lost cause. Sad too, for it was a beautiful place from what I could see.

        Thanks Freedomrox,

        It is indeed a beautiful place. It's only my opinion, but I'm a big fisherman and spend a lot of my time out on that water,and I'm afraid the damage has already been done. I haven't seen a snake or gator for well over 2 months, once a mulltiple times daily sighting. No fish, no bait fish, nothing. I haven't seen a mullet jump in about that amount of time too, and did you know that mullet jump as a way of respirating? So, no jumping mullets mean they aren't there. The water appears dead, and I don't think it's the oil, yet, but the salt escaping under the boons.

        It's my understanding that the Police Jury can't enforce this. I'm kind of glad. I just want the problems fixed and a safe place to live. I prefer to give that possibility a chance. I'll wait. It's worth the wait. Yet, I don't want to be alone on an island.

          rainbeaudais, the wildlife is what i keep worrying about, too, and feeling so heartfelt sick over. The people, however hard, can walk away as sad, and as unacceptable, and as unfair as that is. The animals have no where to go without entering already high competition areas created by human degradation of their living habitats. So, most must remain and die.

    I am not going to respond to a personal friend of this lady. (Above) It is very immature and unprofessional to mention someones name in a public video and state that their video info is not accurate! This woman is obviously mentally unstable and will not stop her personal attacks on me publicy! She is driving down the road talking, video taping and is not even paying attention to the raod she is on! If she desires so put herself in danger by doing so that is one thing. But here actions are jeopardizing other people's safety on a public highway! That is called "wreckless vehicle operation" in the state of Louisiana! 14:2(4) & (6), 14:99 and Code of Criminal Procedure

      Umm that is an irresponsible and possibly actionable statement Charles. It was evident for all to see that she was not looking through a camera lens and just pointing it, or we would have gotten a much better view of things if focused on when she was driving. Twice we see that she pulls the camera down with her right hand when operating the gear shift lever.
      You truly don't have a leg to stand on here. I truly would not even attempt to report this as such, because the video is proof. Rainbow could sue you for defammation if you do.

      Son, you need to grow up some. I give the devil his due, but she has outdone you at every turn and is much more mature. She took you on, and you lost. I admitted I was wrong when I went back and looked at G-Earth and alos admitted I may have mis-interpretated what looked to be fencposts. That is a sign of maturity, and of admitting when you are wrong. She saw a challenge and said, "Damn, I am going to set the record straight…I LIVE HERE!"

      Guess what? She did. For that I am eternally greatful. Many in the area think we "Cyber-Watchers" don't understand a thing about them, so I actually posted an "Open Letter to the Residents of Bayou Corne", and pray they understand.

          Nothing aggressive about stating the truth boy. I tried to be familiar and show non hostility, but you are a kid, so this response was expected. Rainbow isn't a friend per se' as I have spoken up in your defence as well, until Rainbow set the record straight. See, she proved that she wasn't a hit and run visitor, and lived in a paradise turned nightmare. She proved every assertion she made.
          I am the friend of all people speaking truth, whether they know it or not.
          Many say I am very direct, and I am. Country boys are like that. "Call a spade a spade" and such.
          When you threaten people with calling the authorities for her proving you wrong and making you look foolish, then your credibility is gone, and quick.
          Instead of griping on this board, then why not use that Law Degree to speak to some of the residents and help them sort thru some the nightmare of legal issues they are facing? Maybe regain some credibility that way.
          Also, with your camera, you could be speaking to residents and gaining their reactions. Just tone down the attitude with them, or "dey may be dun choot yur ahhs".
          Last words to you until I see something more constructive.

              Please do. Anyone that knows a true Cajun, knows they don't put up with strangers kindly, so it was a general statement, as anyone with common sense can read.

              BTW, I have always loved the Acadian dialect as it usually takes my brain a couple of moments to catch up to what they are actually saying.

              I delivered to a place down in Houma back in the 90's, and the Ol Boy said, "you be dem dere back ta dat der choot den dis be dum n I go chere, neh?"

              Took a moment for me to figure out that…he wanted "me to back my rig up to the chute over by where he was pointing and I would be done, ok?"

              Many would laugh at that or him, but he was just speaking cajun, and I was the one that felt like the doofus.

              Not much different than a Joisy boy telling you to get out o da Cah, geez guys.

    "Linda characterized the Bayou Corne state of affairs as "an incredibly unsafe situation," with the heritage of Acadia and a "whole community being ripped apart by this disaster." The situation continues with the ongoing discoveries of new bubble sites in the surrounding bayous. Linda noted that the number of bubbling locations in the bayou has risen to 33.

      HotR, i kinda wondered about that, too. There has been a lot of tries recently at rewriting what has clearly been documented about this sinkhole. We all have so many questions and people are starting to show up and fill in answers from their point of view, not as an open-ended wondering, but, as "this is what is happening, no doubt about it". I put it down to differing perspectives because many people will see their livelihoods effected in terms of jobs and they have been taught to see their activities as always in a positive light. It's hard to accept the darker side or come to terms with dangers a person may be causing inadvertently in order to get product out of the ground, or use the ground as storage, fracking, and such. I welcome and accept the bringing of different opinions, but, i bristle at the rewriting, which has the effect of just making a confusing situation more confusing. I'm not comfortable in myself yet, with what has been agreed upon or speculated about this sinkhole phenomenon to accept that this is really no big deal, nothing to see here, no one has died, so stop exaggerating, we got it handled kind of thing. Hundreds of salt domes around the country have been used in this fashion and it makes me a little nervous that even international expects are saying they are stymied while some claim all is well. Something is really, really different at this sinkhole. It deserves our attention and our willingness to follow the evidence, not the…

      I'm not sure how many different ways I can say yes there ARE many bubbling spots in Bayou Corne, Grand Bayou and Triche Bayou, but there are NO bubbling sites right "there" by the bridge, as Mr W indicated. I know I said it at least twice yesterday, and even pointed out Number 10 as being the closest one to the bridge, yet way too far to be seen "from" the bridge, even with a camera as it is around the bend. It's right behind my sisters camp.

      Both your articles are 3 months old, but thanks anyway. There are many new bubble sites since those articles. As far as your flicker pics. Can you identify each one?

        rainbeaudais – is it really absolutely critical to be "right" about this specific bubble/no-bubble location? For those of us at a distance, it is sufficiently alarming to learn there are multiple locations, and that more develop. I doubt this specific location is foremost in thoughts at this time.

        (Not expecting an answer – just wanted to pose the thought and suggest where our minds 'are at' regarding the Sinkhole disaster. Hope it helps.)

        Rainbow, go to Climate Viewer.com and you can go down to the very latest reported "bubbling site", then check them out on the ground. Hell, you are the best journalist that we all have on site. Forget the YT bullsh-t. We need you as a reporter and your point of view right there on site.

        I know you want this all fixed and to just go away, but it won't. So far, just gotten worse. None, not even Sandia Labs has a clue. Never happened in these circumstances before…ever.

        I do pray for ya'll, but I cannot stand the thought of harm coming to ya'll, when you have been warned.

        As for gators, mullets, even frogs…they are much more attuned to the earth's magnetic field and probably vacated the area a few days before the sinkhole appeared, and any that remained are most likely dead.

        Some other Parish is getting the "Good Gumbo" right now.

        Also, a friend of mine down outside of Slidell said they are getting a surge in mullet, jumping all over… Wonder why?

          I'll look at that site Freedom.I tried once before and could not get it to open. APPJ has a map of bubbling sites but it is not updated as it should be. I think you are right about the animals and marine wild life. At least if it's the salt, they will have hopefully left, rather than all died, and I don't think that's it. We had the initial fish kill after Isaac, then have seen no more deying fish and no dying animals.

          Interesting about the mullet surge. I'll have to try and do a little research on that.

        Bubble, bubble toil and trouble. Bubbles are happening everywhere in the country. At Snake River in PA a woman was using a lighter and lighting them in the creek. There is a video on youtube. Methane bubbles are happening all over and I'm not sure whether it is caused from Fracking or our changing planet, perhaps both. JMHO

That is part of what make grassroots journalism, journalism, and not just a slide into complete opinion. The public gets to have the name of the journalist and the means to contact them to either question them, thank them, or say horrible things about them. Welcome to the world of losing control of your message.

    Thanks Vic, and being able to argue valid news stories, etc between jounalists, reporters ,etc is a great thing! Even to a point to where they get angry at one another! BUT we all have respect for one another and one should never post a public video (news story) stating that a someone's story is innacurate unless they have SOLID evidence to prove this! One of the reasons is because many people read-see these news stories regardless of them being in the form of a video, etc. And so in this case her public display of trying to say that my video content was not accurate in regards to bubbles in Bayou Corne…well that obviously backfired on her! Because two people inluding myself have just posted solid evidence that there are in fact bubbles in Bayou Corne! (video evidence of it posted in comments here) Most people want accurate reporting. She is way off target unfortunately! Not even close to being accurate!

    YOu finally admited to bubbles in Bayou Corne. lol Now you are saying that there are bubbles all over Bayou Corne but just not by the bridge? lol That makes no sense at all! The reporter in the video I posted here had her boat right on the other side of the bridge from where I was filming! Maybe 40 yards or so from where I filmed! If you google map this area you will see that Bayou Corne is not that big! Do the bubbles not come up by the bridge because you tell them not to? Jeeez…whoa! Now I see why you did not get out of your vehicle and video record the water in your video here. In your video you simply state that you are not even going to bother to get out your vehicle to show that there are no bubbles by the bridge. I think it is pretty obvious why you did not show video proof of no bubbles in Bayou Corne! Many news reporters have stated that there are bubbles ALL over Bayou Corne! This is a very serious and important news story! Saying that almost 100 percent of the people have not evacuated and that there are no bubbles by the Bayou Corne bridge is not good! In fact on highway 70 very close to that opening where you recorded the sinkhole in low 240 quality from a distance..Well close by that area they have a sign that says HAZMAT!

        Bayou Corne is not that large. And bubbles do not always continue to occur in the exact same area when something like this occurs. There are bubbles in the area of the bridge where I recorded my video! There are bubbles all over Bayou Corne! Why you even uploaded a video to try and discredit me and mention my name in it over bubbbles near the bridge is pointless! lol I did not see large bubbles in this area the day I was there but there were small ones coming up. It was getting dark at the time we arrived so I did not time to film after crossing the bridge. But if you ask anyone that is from your area that has accurate information they will tell you that there are bubbles all over Bayou Corne! We even prove that in videos and links that we have posted here recently! The reporter in the boat was going all over Bayou Corne and showing bubbles everywhere! She has Bayou Corne in the title of her video. Does she need to come here and help you to understand? You also state that almost 100 percent of the people have not evacuated from your area. That is not true! I find it strange that someone from your area would try to make other's believe that things are ok near the sinkhole when there is a serious situation going on in Bayou Corne! Is there a certain organization that you have ties with that want you to represent your area in this way? That concerns me greatly because people's lives are in danger with this sinkhole situation!

At this point my main concern is that rainbeaudais is going out of her way to try and make people believe that everything is ok in the Bayou Corne sinkhole area! But what is her motive for this? Is she tied to some organization that wants her to do this for some unknown purpose? Because she is very aggressive about doing so!

          okay, thanks HOTR, because I can assure you that no one is this area is casual about it all all, but we realize it's one way to get rid of the gas and lessen an explosion. Lots of things happening here that we are not happy about, but we want our community fixed, and realize certain things have to be done to reach that goal.

          I just allowed Texas Brine to install a Geoprobe on my property. Gas was found 16 to 26 feet down. I'm not happy, or casual about knowing there are now 2 deep holes in my property connecting to gas, but again, I realize it is necessary.

              I'm sorry. Stalling by me? i'm just trying to explain to you what I am hearing are explanations people have been given. Everyone is upset about the road being open.

              Yet, people on either side of Bayou Corne still choose to use it rather than go around. People that know about the situation and the possible danger. I can imagine the uproar from all those people that pass through if they had to drive 60 miles out of their way twice a day to get back and forth from work.

              At times, I know the officials must feel like there is no right thing to do, or right answer.

              No answers on how long any of this will last, no.

    Crude oil from sinkhole extremely toxic:

    Gulf Oil Spill Health Hazards
    “Crude oil has many highly toxic chemical ingredients that can damage every system in the body. Dispersant chemicals can affect many of the same organs. These include:

    respiratory system nervous system, including the brain
    liver reproductive/urogenital system
    kidneys endocrine system
    circulatory system gastrointestinal system
    immune system sensory systems
    musculoskeletal system hematopoietic system (blood forming)
    skin and integumentary system disruption of normal metabolism

    “Damage to these systems can cause a wide range of diseases and conditions. Some may be immediately evident, and others can appear months or years later. The chemicals can impair normal growth and development through a variety of mechanisms, including endocrine disruption and direct fetal damage. They cause mutations that may lead to cancer and multi-generational birth defects. Some are known carcinogens, such as benzene (CDC, 1999)….”

    I need to clarify something, and am hoping that ENENEWS can clarify as well. In my video, I pointed out one subdivision (27 homes) behind the command center and a few homes on the highway, and made the comment that only 3 homes that I knew of, had evacuated. I was referring only to that particular area of the community, NOT the entire community, which consists of over 150 homes, and of which approx 75% have evacuated. See aerial view pic.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/assumptionoep/8135804376/in/photostream

    The goal of my statement was to debunk a statement made that it is a "ghost town", and thus IMO, leave homes vulnerable to invasion. There are folks in the community that are concerned that it looks like I am saying (and others are interpreting it this way) only 3 homes total evacuated, and therefore, downplaying the situation here. That it looks like if people didn't evacuate, it must not be all that bad. There ARE many people that evacuated day one,and have never returned to their homes. The choice of leaving or not, varied for many different reasons. But know, that everyone is afraid, beaten down by this, and had their lives disrupted permanently, and it is a VERY grave situation.

    My response to the concerns was this "Thing is, it really doesn't matter whether they think we are or are not scared based on whether we left or not. The evidence is that there is a big ole hole in the ground that is unstable, a falied cavern, a compromised salt dome, butane at…

      Now another of your rediculous statements about my video have been proven to be untrue! Why am I not surprised? lol And earlier you stated that I singled out homes! That is a huge lie! I would never do that since I have worked in LE and I am a former police officer. I have many LE friends that work the streets and they would never want anyone to ride around wrecklessly with a camera in hand talking and recording video down a busy highway like you did! There are childrens lives that you were risking when doing so! (disgusting that anyone could be so selfish and inconsiderate of other's) The national news has reported that numerous people have evacuated from your area! That is nothing new and many people around the world already know that! lol My video was not pointing out anything new! And when an area is evacuated the police are aware of the homes that are empty. They do a great job patrolling these areas and keeping property safe! It is not your job to protect these homes. lol You seem to think you are in control of everything in your area and know everything! With my close connections to many people in high level government organizations I know much more than you do! (humble way) If you want to shoot cell phone videos and post them on youtube that is fine. But please get your information accurate and don't record while driving. Also please stop making light of this serious situation because people's lives are in danger in your area! This sinkhole is a bad situation…

      Hi rainbeaudais, I added your update to the report above. Great work you are doing.

      After posting many reports on this topic, I think one could be especially relevant for trying to figure out the next step: http://enenews.com/feds-keeping-sinkhole-info-secret-state-rep-theyre-doing-infrared-monitoring-telling-about-wont-because-all-about-money-video

      ———————

      Rep. Harrison: The federal government [...] This thing just seems to escalate [...] They need somebody to tie it all together [...] It needs to be declared a disaster. Once it’s declared a disaster, a whole new set of rules and regulations are enforced. [...]

      Resident: What can we do to help push that along?

      Harrison: They’re concerned about the viability of the highway [...] hit them where their pockets are. They really care about revenue [...] When you say you shut down Interstate 70 [...] Morgan City is a major thoroughfare for the energy industry [...] Forced evacuation was a second thing [...] Revenue is the big thing right now, I can tell you [...]

      ———————–

      And your footage shows just how close the collapse zone is to 70.

        Thank you ENENEWS. You have earned my complete respect. The highway is a very major concern to us and an issue that is brought up by someone daily, especially the fact that not only are folks passing through the area that are completely unaware (yes, there are people unaware), but because of school buses full of children. There are many different thoughts on why the highway should not be closed, and one is balancing the danger level of the situation here on one hand, and the danger level of having to detour and spend 60 more miles of traveling time (twice daily for school buses)on the other. Closing the highway would indeed be the impact we need, and force the issue.

        HEY ENEnews! rainbeaudais has also given you an excellent video featuring Louisiana State Rep Joe Harrison meets with Mr. Martin Folse of HTV10 regarding the Bayou Corne Sinkhole.

        I haven't seen this on ENEnews, and historical perspective is important! If you don't know the past, then you sure can't predict the future. This is from last month and believe it needs to be FEATURED! for historical perspective that actually gives a view to the Homeowners of Bayou Corne!

        I believe it would enhance the credibility and the reliability of ENEnews, that I love so well, to offer this historical documentary, since much of what Rep. Harrison has now proven to be erroneous and now historical proof of lies told by DNR and Texas Brine!

        Whether in the video itself or your comments under the video, all your words combined says enough.

        All of the houses around the area where you see the water are vacant! Nobody is in them! They have all been evacuated! I post many dangerous type videos and most of them are from being out in the brunt of hurricanes! So when it comes to informing my followers of important news events I am aggressive! I do believe that this area is safe on a short term visiting basis. My main concern is the possibility of a Butane Explosion from a well close by that contains 1.5 million barrels of liquid butane!

        We noticed that all of the houses around this area of Bayou Corne are vacant! Everyone has evacuated to a safer area! It was rather strange to see numerous nice houses with no people living in the them! In person it was like a ghost town type of atmosphere! We also noticed that the animals have left from this area! We saw no birds, turtles, fish, or anything alive in this area! It is very odd to see an area of water in Louisiana with no birds around! They had Mosquitos but that is about it!

          And BTW Charles, you are also wrong about the 1.5 million barrels of Butane. that figure is only the capacity of the cavern. When this started, and Crosstex started transferring the butane from Cavern #2 to cavern #1, the figure was 945,919 barrels. Not 1.5 million barrels.

          And becasue I know you will dispute this as well, here are the numbers per Crosstex.

    That is considered a threat to me no matter what slange you made your statement in! Since I will be back in this area soon.. in order to protect my safety this internet threat will be reported! This is called cyber bullying! Choot is a reference to using some type of weapon such as a gun. I have no idea whome you are referring to that would choot (shoot) me? But that is a serious accusation and that is not something to be taken litely in today's society! I will be back in this area and I may go along with a local New Orleans news crew. They want to interview some locals and get their opinions on what is occurring in this area. I also do reporting for a Fresno, California radio station and I will be on air reporting my story about this area this coming weekend. But when it comes to someone stating that someone will choot me that I will not tolerate! That is a serious threat that should never be posted anywhere! Even though it was posted in slang LE officers know the true meaning of slang terms. The DEA deals with these slang terms all of the time! I am in hopes that you did not meant what you posted.

And say that almost 100 percent of the people in the sinkhole area are in still in their homes. Then comes back and changes her story to about 75 percent of the people in the sinkhole have left their homes! States that there are no bubbles in the area of Bayou Corne by the bridge. Then several people including myself debunk this by showing video footage all over Bayou Corne with bubbles coming up everwhere in this bayou! And her way of proving that there are no bubbles by the bridge is to stay in her vehicle and tell us. It would take 30 seconds to get out of the vehicle and video proof of this. lol She did not want to film the bubbles there because she would have debunked herself! lol If this is the best journalist you know of then you have been living in the boon docks to long now!

        FreedomRox, if i may distract you a moment from helping this man make money by stirring up controversy regarding his youtube videos, i have a question that i'm asking those here blogging o enenews that have some working knowledge of earth movement, hydrocarbons, etc. that i haven't found an answer to. It relates to the sinkhole, the BP Gulf disaster, theories of megaquakes, global warming…it seems to link to many things – methane. Why is the oil drilling industry reluctant to admit to methane hydrates or higher than usual methane pressure found in the Gulf of Mexico? Why is there such a big push back or a complete ignoring of when i ask this question? What about high pressure methane, if anything, interferes with, threatens or makes difficult, oil extraction? Anyone else, please? Thx!

        • FREEDOMROX

          Vic, it is because it interferes with profits, if I understand your question correctly. When methane pressures on the sea floor rise, it is always a precursor of oil. Methane does not make it harder to extract oil, as it is just another resource to capture and exploit.
          Methane Hydrates are another form altogether under the seafloor and within the muds.
          On land, is another story entirely:
          http://www.epa.gov/ada/pubs/methane_screening_soil_gas.pdf

          So can you make your question a little more precise. Not being a smart alec, just don't understand quite what you are asking for, and what impacts on what environment. Because it is different for all mediums, sir.

I'm wondering for various reasons, but, mostly because i thought it was an issue in the BP Maconda well disaster, at least in terms of it's pressure, making capping the well that much more difficult, and the methane hydrates making the dome idea a no-go, and methane bubbling in the sinkhole with some folks saying it's a problem and others saying it's no biggy. Thad and i are having a discussion about BP and the oil industry in general, and to make that discussion more coherent for me, i'm gathering info. I'm looking online, too, but wading through results is very time consuming and i'm a little short on time right now so was hoping people here could help. I'll start with this link you provided.

            Well, FRox,that's a wash because i just don't have the time to learn a new language in order to read the abstract. Have a layperson second source article instead? Is there or is there ot methane hydrates in the Mississippi Alluvial Plain? Was there or was there not an unexpectedly high methane pressure reading that concerned, at least, some BP oil riggers before and after the explosion – not causing it, just perhaps contributing to the gusher or was that all the altered cement plugs. Why were they capping off a perfectly good well. I thought it was because of the methane levels. Was there another reason? Why do some seem to think that methane will not show up in people's faucets while others are convinced of it? I'm operating on the theory that people are taught and learn only those aspects of a science or technology that pertains to their job or interest and leave the rest. Oil extraction may focus on fluid dynamics, while seismology will focus on earth movement. They may not be all that aware of what the other field of interest knows, tough they will share where it overlaps. My thought is that the deeper we drill, the more diagonally we drill and the more methane we mess with, the more we need to adjust and improve our knowledge base. what i encounter so far, though is – "nah, we've always done things like this and it works just fine".

              con't FRox..so perhaps the problem is with me and my thinking that methane is an issue. Perhaps it's not a factor or danger or concern, that though i keep hearing it mentioned and it keeps showing up, it's incidental, a side effect, but, not central in anyway to the sinkhole or the gushers or the thawing methane hydrate layers…. And, then, back to your reply – if methane interfere's with oil profits, how? If it is also just one more thing to extract, doesn't it increase their profits?

                OK Ma'am, sorry for that.

                "The first attempts to stop the flow of oil was the use of remotely operated underwater vehicles to close the blowout preventer valves on the well head; however, all these attempts failed.[87][146] The second technique, placing a 125-tonne (280,000 lb) containment dome (which had worked on leaks in shallower water) over the largest leak and piping the oil to a storage vessel on the surface, failed when gas leaking from the pipe combined with cold water formed methane hydrate crystals that blocked the opening at the top of the dome.[147] Attempts to close the well by pumping heavy drilling fluids into the blowout preventer to restrict the flow of oil before sealing it permanently with cement ("top kill") also failed."

      Rose, I have never and will never be a fan of the "Feds" but until they get invovled and this is declared a National Disaster Area, the DNR and Texas Brine are going to keep jerking them around until most are dead and gone. Hwy. 70 does need to be shut down as it's a hazard for people driving thru the chemical cloud spread all over the place….then they will get the Governor's attention.
      What's worse, in a recent meeting it was claimed that EPA is involved, so if true, where are they? The Feds don't want to deal with it either.
      LDNR sure doesn't care, just take a look at the amount of permits they have handed out. 131, I believe, if I counted right, in just the Scout Report!

    I understand the need for Fed oversee.
    I do not think the people will be afforded any more transparency..I assume less.
    HS is in authoritive position..and more likely to tell the people what to do..as opposed to asking the people their wishes.
    I believe the concerns of the corporations..are of a greater concern to them than the welfare of the people.

    I called the governor's office..in the early BP days.
    I called day..and night..like a cryer ..yelling fire.
    All calls were fielded to the BP response hot line.
    Now they are being fielded to HS.
    What? the people of Louisiana can not openly address the governor?
    That's because..he has sold the people of Louisiana ..down river.

    I am forced to agree with you, Rose. ENEnews and Harrison are correct about shutting down Hwy. 70, because it hits them in the pocketbook. What worries me more is that Pipeline Row becomes damaged due all the ground movement and possible subsidence. One thing Rainbow did was illustrate just how close pipeline row intersects with the edge of the sinkhole.
    Again, I would run, not walk the devil out of there. I pray they have shut that pipline down, but who knows? Can't trust a word they say….

      hey Freedom….looks like I missed some fun. Sorry, I was eating boiled crabs.No,not from the sinkhole, but from the Grand Isle area.

      Crosstex did empty and shut in those 2 (20) inch pipilens long ago. In fact, one of them floated up to the surface because it was empty and full of air. They actually have a pic of it.

      http://www.flickr.com/photos/assumptionoep/8076960360/in/photostream

      I know you don't trust them, but I believe it. The 36 inch pipeline that bent and moved like 15 feet was so badly bent thatpeople were surprised it didn't break and said if it had, it would have taken out about 2 miles around us.

      My concern about the road is not (just) the sinkhole, but the massive voids underground. No one can say that another sinkhole won't form any time.

      • FREEDOMROX

        Well, I do trust a resident with boots on the ground. Thanks. To be honest with you….I do not see how a greater subsidence cannot form? As Harrison stated, the "Feds" do know a lot about the topography and are using Infrared Sat. Imaging, and know what is to come, but will not tell you residents a thing. Good Lord, your own vid shows that the nearest house is 1500 ft.
        First reports stated they expect 1400 ft, which btw would take in the original Crosstex cavern, which no matter how hard they try…cannot completely empty it. It won't be much geologically, but imagine a gist of butane vapors hitting the air mas around you. Breathing will be about impossible for a short time, but since you have flaring, then there is no lack of ignition source either.
        Has that possibility been thought of and prepared for?

        • rainbeaudais rainbeaudais

          Actually, I personally have never considered the close distance of the flare and the butane in the event the butane cavern is damaged. I've been focused on them telling us because the butane is liquid that it wouldn't come up fast enough to form a vapor cloud. You make a very good point and worth bringing up.

            Well, not trying to scare anyone, but it is a scenario that is very possible and probable. It is like a gas tank. Pitch a match into it full and it puts out the flame, no oxygen, but do the same with a quarter tank of gas and BOOM!
            I know the remains are liquid on the bottom of the cavern but once exposed to air once the brine falls away in a subsidence event, then it will be a quick gust of butane gas right next to the flare.
            Scares the Dickens out of me.

            • Radio VicFromOregon

              okay FRox, see, here is another gas issue mixed in with earth movement. You're saying – hey we have open flame here and butane that's going to come up once enough subsidence happens. That's a potential problem, maybe folks should clear the area. Now, i'm thinking you're saying that because you are looking at this sinkhole from a earth movement perspective. not an oil drilling perspective. I think they are entirely different views and beliefs about how the earth moves, how fluids move in the earth and what makes something likely or not. They are hoping things will all simply "fill in and fill up" and all will be fine. Get all the pressures working right and no worries. You are fearing things will subside, leech, move, erode..and release gas. How is it possible to have two such disparate views of the same thing?


              Report comment

              • FREEDOMROX

                Mainly because they will not release the data of the actual damage to the cavern or where, or if there is an erosion of east side of the salt dome through fresh water infusion from simple rainfall.

                There are no other barriers between caverns other than salt. Freshwater influx is the enemy of rock salt, so any further subsidence would cause thousands of gallons of freshwater flow wherever it will.

                They have maps of the damage, as Re. Harrison has stated on several occasions. This should not be an unknown.

                Also, just the act of flaring is putting the respiratory system of children and the elderly at great risk, especially considering how close it is to the neighborhoods.

                  FRox the top of the salt dome is 700'the tops of the storage caverns are 3,000' so at any given point there is 2,300' of salt to dissolve– that's a lot of salt–
                  Fresh water when contacting salt will dissolve it until saturated with salt then it can not dissolve any more–
                  So to damage the saltdome with fresh water will require a lot of fresh water about 3 bbl water for ever bbl of salt– and some force to circulate the saturated brine out and replace with fresh water to continue the dissolving — all the way down to 3,000 '

      Hi HotR, I'm new here but have been following this event(S) since late August when I realized that the MSM were not really following up on this. I'm currently subscribed to Assumption Police Jury and receive constant updates in my email. I was wondering why it is you seem to imply that the full document was not read. I can assure you that I do in fact read the full PDFs not just summaries. I've now finally been drawn into this potentially catastrophic situation by following the plight of the citizens of Bayou Corne in their search for answers and resolution. Up here in Vancouver Canada there is very little notice taken of this dire situation and I'll try to get up to speed now that I've entered the fray. There are so many good educated responders here that I'll thank for bringing facts to light that the MSM will refuse to engage and I'll try not to bring up silly irrelevant material in my hope to more fully understand this disaster, that it truly is!

    If you follow this link to the oil drum, you find an August discussion about the developing sinkhole problem, pay particular attention to 'ROCKMAN' posts as he is a respected oil rig man at the site and still active in the industry. Scrolling back above you will see discussion if the butane cavern releases.

    The most pathetic thing that anyone can do on the internet is to creat numerous FAKE accounts in order to pretend to to be real people. They do this to make postings that look like numerous people are in support of them. This is done when two people are involved in a disagreement on an issue. That is what I refer to as rainbow clones here (rainbeaudais). HINT numerous NEW profile posting here with NO pictures on them! Of course done to conceal their identity..But the way to tell is by the words in the postings. If they all post the same then it makes sense it is the same person posting over and over. lol And that is what has been happening here today! Anyone wonder why rainbeaudais is not posting here today? lol It is because rainbeaudais is posting under new account names here! That is pretty easy to figure out! All of the new postings have the same style of personality! lol I may not always be right but I bring no one here to stand up for me! I do it on my own and I would never make fake acounts and pretend to be numerous people! That is very lame! I would like to cordially welcome all of the new rainbeaudais clones here today! You can make 50 clones for all I care. You won't bring me down or upset me! You should create a web page and call it rainbow land. You could call it "the home of the endless clones"!

    Landry's livelihood nearing a hole

    'Bayou Corne resident Dennis Landry wakes up in the morning and it typically starts with a cup of coffee like most. He walks out onto a marsh and looks at bubbling that is about 30 feet away from his house. He walks over to Assumption Office of Emergency Planning (OEP) to find out what's going on. Then he might stop by Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) command center and see if the air is still okay. Then, he might stop by and see the folks with Department of Natural Resources. And then, he'll go see if they are all telling the same story. It's been like this since August third.'

And, some is because they each see the issue from a different standpoint. That all said, what none of them, save a few, seem to see is the effect on the people and the environment. This fellow should not have to walk around to each agency to find out what he needs to know. It should be written up in a morning summary page for every resident EVERY morning, even if it takes someone typing all night long.

    This did not offer a scientific comparison. A person's word is not enough in the land of visual analysis.
    What we need is COOPERATION..and time lapse.

      Well, here's the deal Heart. I am about 2 blocks from the spot by the bridge. I could walk there and video the no bubbles. I could get in my boat and go video the no bubbles. But, I have learned not to waste my time on such things.

      Here is what would likely be said if I WERE to go video the no bubbles.

      1)-They WERE there. They are gone now.
      2)-They come and go,and you caught the 'go' end.
      3)-You are 10 feet too far over.
      4)-The current is stronger now and carrying them away.
      5)-You edited the video.
      6)-That's not REALLY by the bridge.
      7)-A fish is down there sucking all the gas bubbles up.
      8)-A turtle is down there having a ball popping the bubbles.
      9)-Geometric 'changes' have caused the spot to move.
      10)-That's an old video.

      Take your pic. There WOULD be a reason levied against me for NOT having bubbles in the video. It would simply not be possible for anyone to say…"Hey, you're right.cThere ARE no bubbles right there".

      And I suspect you would be one of the first to doubt the validity of the video.

      Yes?

        Not really..both vids look at location..if bubbles had not presented at that location..it would not have meant that it does not bubble there..only that bubbles are not present at the time.
        What I would like is to have timelapse on an area that is constantly bubbling.. (and I assume there are places)…so I can ..'eyeball' the rate.

        You mentioned the water receding ..can you tell us anymore about that?

          Well, I hate to disagree with you again, but it's just not how you think it is or describe it. The bubble locations, once spotted just don't come and go. Every bubble site, once found has still been there, for over 4 months now. They don't move around either.

          My point is if there had been bubbling by the bridge, it would have been reported and logged by now, and it would be there any time, all the time, for anyone to see.

          As far as the water receding. Normal. Less rain. No snow melting up north.

        I want everyone here to understand something, and Rainbow, if I am wrong, pleae correct me. You are not a "Conspiracy Theorist" or even a big fan such genre', would that be a correct statement?

        You were just an average everyday bayou lady, living life as best you could, correct?

        Then one day, all of a sudden, your world was turned upside down and you immediately turned to the authorities for explanations, and found obfuscation and prevarication, correct?

        One day, you took it upon yourself to stop being a victim, and started being proactive, because you love the swamp and where you live, correct?

        You posted what you knew and asked questions and hunted everywhere for answers, and only found conspiracy theories, correct?

        When you became proactive, you met resistance from someone trying to make his bones on Ya'lls' disaster and it incenced you, so you fought the lies, correct?

        Now, you are getting tired, but very determined to fight until the end, correct?

        This is your damned home and you want the world to know that all these corporations daily lied to all of you folks and you want to hold them accountable, correct?

        I only ask these questions, because it is how I felt 32 years ago, when an event happened in my life…and I was just an ordinary fella, that just wanted to live his life….

        If I am wrong, then please correct me, because all of us that have been in the fight for years are very jaded, and your answers will help people connect to you..

    Just for fun I pasted in the 142 comments into Word to see how many words since this thread started: 13,815. In like 30 hours! Sheesh.

    Good thing I read 2,000 words a minute because if I had to slog for two hours through the morass accumulated here I would probably have made myself a Mafia necktie from my ceiling beam.

    Helluva lot of Cary Grant therapy needed for somebody, but I'm not pointing fingers. *;-)

    While this isn't your mother's blog, I hope to hell it don't descend into Alt.enenewsflame.

    Give it a break and quit wrestling with pigs…they enjoy it.

    Give all of us some hard science, some documented analysis, some reasonable commentary, and something worthy of pixels of light on this screen.

    Ciao baby…

      Lots of good info here, and if not for the wannabe, would have stayed on point. Sometimes we all need to vent 'puter and this and one other thread is evidence of this.

      One such is this:
      http://www.epa.gov/ada/pubs/methane_screening_soil_gas.pdf

      and I think all resident's of Bayou Corne should read this, if no other reason than to see what will be the result, even if no further subsidence occurs.

      Yes, it is madness, and it abounds everywhere.

      You are a good person, and think the world of ya, 'puter, not being critical.

        Now you give me something worth my while. *;-)

        The Okie soil gas research project was interesting albeit slanted (funded by the EPA).

        Interesting methodology by Jewell…seems like a thorough scientist. Obviously the article is intended for his brethren and not BA folks like myself. His writing style could use some finesse.

        Take this major chart heading for example on page 8:

        "The Concentration of Benzene in Soil Gas, the Vapor Attenuation Factors (`) Estimated from Conditions at the Sites, and the Screening Level Prediction of the Concentration of Benzene Vapor That Might Be Expected in a Building When Methane Is and Is Not Considered in the Calculation of the Attenuation Factor"

        SP: Got that straight? *;-)

        Then we see this jewel of Big Brother bureaucracy in the Conclusion:

        "All research projects making conclusions or recommendations based on environmental data and funded by the U.S. EPA are required to participate in the Agency Quality Assurance Program. This project was conducted under an approved Quality Assurance Project Plan. Information on the plan and documentation of the quality assurance activities and results are available from J.T.W." p. 12

        SP: Sounds like the WHO arrangement with the IAEA. >;->

        BTW…the mysterious initials JTW refers to Jewell's corresponding author:

        "John Wilson, is a Research Microbiologist for U.S. EPA’s Ground Water and Ecosystem Restoration Division in Ada, Oklahoma." p.13

          Thought you might like that, but so much more is revealed, if looking towards Bayou Corne. Mathane is pumping up everwhere, so what is the effect upon the soil?

          I do so love when others find these facts on their own. Yes, I am a butthole, but we all have one, and I am only who I am.

          John Wilson is actually lucky to be alive, as most of his constituents are not. Hope this is less biased than I think it is.

      :) An hour or two ago I logged into ENE and saw the 'recent comments' column loaded with "Oh yeah! – well here's what I say to that!" type posts. I thought of what I value in human community, including ENE. I thought of what Admin hopes this site can offer and support. I thought of the intense commitment of members, and of much else.

      I thought the term "hijacked" (by personalized quarrel) a fair one.

      So I spent quite a while composing a post hoping to quell the disruption.

      To be sure nothing had changed during my writing time, I checked before posting. Concentration seemed to have settled back to topic.

      So I saved my un-submitted post as word-doc.

      I'll be so relieved to never submit it! (This happier one in lieu!)

      (fingers crossed in hope nothing's changed while I was composing this!!)

              Cyber stalking! LMAO! Let me refresh your memory! Rainbeaudais came to my youtube channel and posted several fals and defamatory comments on my page about me! All of what she posted lies about me has turned out to be untrue! No bubbles in the bayou corne by the bridge. And she still has in her youtube title that almost 100 percent of the people in bayou corne are still in their homes. That has also been proven to be untrue! And she has admitted to lieing about it here publicy. She then posted more defamatory statements about me on ANOTHER public site (Facebook) On the site that she controls titled "bayou corne sinkhole". That was REMOVED because of the the false statements she posted about me there! And facebook has records of EVERYTHING that was posted there! Also youtube has records of all that was posted by her! But YOU above calling me a paranoid psychopath. Well that is defemation at it's finest! Enough to file a petition against you! Nutcase?Tthat can be used also. Freeky, creepy. You obviously need some schooling in legal matters! Maybe you will get some soon? And your accusation of me cyber stalking! That is a joke! I think you barked up the wrong tree this time!

              Hey Freedom….thanks for this link. Yes, it's crossed the line now. Not only has stalking been established by posting a link to my ebay account here, (proof that he has googled me) but he has apparently gone back through everyone of my videos on youtube and "disliked" them. The dislikes in themselves, I could not care less about, but the intent (stalking), I do.

              Apparently he doesn't realize youtube frowns big time against harrassment, and they are able to trace that activity, and see what dog is sniffing out my videos and lifting his leg to pee on them.

              He has also made numerous comments here about my mental stability, and other things, all saved. I usually just blowoff …..how did I see it said here? Assisted thinking…(LOVE that)….but not this time.

Including using my personal name in a public youtube video. You and sseveral accounts harassing me on youtube, here and facebook! Whether or not they are from your IP can be proven. And that includes all of the links that have been posted here and to my youtube account. (also facebook) And I have an GOOD standing with youtube on everything there! All of the derrogatory comments posted from NUMEROUS accoounts here towards me, well ALL of these can be idenified! If I make any reference to anything about you like you have me…ALL of what I reference is PUBLIC information (web pages) that YOU have chosen to make PUBLIC! Thery were NOT made private! You have posted derrogatory comments about ME personally on THREE different web sites! Here, Facebook, and Youtube! Now that is way out of line! IN fact with 1.7 MILLION video views on youtube NO ONE has ever done that before! I have also have numerous comments from other users about your strange activity on my youtube account.

                    I have no plans to sue you rainbeaudais. I know that you and everyone in your area are going thru a lot right now! I do not want you or anyone else in your area to have another issue to worry about at this time. Even though we disagree on numerous issues about our videos, etc, I do not wish anything bad on you. Many times when people encounter a traumatic event in their lives they cope with it in many different ways. Sometimes this even includes denial of what is actually occurring because they do not want to believe it could happen to them. You and I both know that this is a serious situation in your area and also for the state of Louisiana! It is good that you have the bayou corne sinkhole site on facebook. It is also good that you are posting all of the town hall meetings on youtube. This helps to bring awareness to what is occurring in your area. Just try to be as accurate as possible with what you report. That is what is important right now! Again today you posted to me: "you are obviously a simperinmg little whiny candy assed prick sore loser." That is obviously a very immature statement! That type of posting here only damages you integrity! Please let's move on and try to focus on what this news site was created for. In the case of this thread "the Louisiana Sinkhole". You harbor to much hostility and anger for some unknown reason. It could be because of past issues with men and or the stress you have been under lately. But please let's move on now. Peace be…

      Actually a number of vent wells they have drilled plugged right up, and I believe, believe only four are actually working now, plus the one they had to shut down due to hydrogen sulfide.

      A question? Why do they not uncork all of the vent wells that they had placed in 2003 when a much larger volume of methane was flared then, just after Texas Brine took over the two caverns?

      and No, Rainbow, that isn't good, in any circumstance, but Rose wasn't demeaning that at all, only focusing on the technical aspect of the lower amount of gas, I am pretty sure. This may sound harsh, but anyone with children that stay that close to vent flaring brings some pretty harsh questions to mind….

      I would live in a Motel 6 before exposing my children to that level of toxicity.

        Oh no….sorry if y'all thought I thought that. I was being seriously snarly about the decision to wait until after gasn was proven to be there when it's all over the rest of the place. In other words, that bus should have LONG been rerouted.

        I personally can't understand why anyone with children would take such a risk either. Making the decision as an adult for your self is one thing. Making for your child is another.

        The 2003 incident was further down HWY 70……too far.

It is not beneficial to anyone here to keep posting about anything other than content related to either energy news, etc.. and or the Bayou Corne sinkhole in which this thread is about. We should not continue this battle here! I agree to cease this argument here if everyone else here can.

      I would like to make one more thing clear about the above posting. Enenews posted one of my recent videos here without me contacting them. I appreciate that and many other large news sites do the same for me when I have an important news story to tell. They monitor my youtube page because I have provided them with accurate news stories going back several years now. So I have won their trust and that is how I have accumulated over 1.7 MILLION video views with my youtube channel. That is because of loyal viewers going back several years now. I have excellent standing with youtube! I sincerely appreciate what Enewews did for me and the other sites that post my news stories. So when my linked video went viral I posted a thank you comment thanking this site and a few others for linking my video to their web pages. That helps to bring new users here and that is the least I can do to show my appreciation for what they did for me. I will continue to do this for any video they post here for me. I find this site very informative! They are helping to spread important news about the Louisiana sinkhole. Enenews posts news stories about the Louisiana sinkhole here everyday. Myself along with many other's appreciate that very much! Now if you want to flame me again and post something negative here once again go ahead. I am going to do my best to ignore it and stay focused on what this site was created for. News.. thanks
