Resident 1: At first the tremors were located here. I felt them myself. Other people have felt them in Pierre Part. They’ve been feeling them in Brule [15 miles southeast of sinkhole] now. The thing is USGS says it isn’t happening. It’s happening.

Resident 2: They said it wasn’t happening when it was happening here [in Bayou Corne?] too.

Louisiana State Representative Joe Harrison: That’s why I’ve asked for congressional help on this. [U.S. Senator] Mary Landreau and [U.S. Senator David] Vitter’s office. Mary West who works in Mary’s office told me whatever comes out of this meeting that they can assist they’re going to do it. She assured me of that.

Resident: They’ve had a lot of big earthquakes everywhere, like big ones.
