    When the sinkhole reaches the size of the failed cavern, the shaking will stop.

    So logic dictates that the dome is still collapsing and or the increased pressure below from gas and oil under pressure is fracturing surrounding strata.
    Wonder if a large area around sink hole has changed it's height, like you see in a lava dome expansion under pressure and then all hell let's loose, any recent readings any where this could be important, if the bottom of the sink hole is rising then the land above must be rising, if not then the sink hole is being filled from collapse from within. No expert.

    Sure, Dosdos. When have you been right yet with the denial and normalcy bias? You've already been told this isn't about the sinkhole…that pressures from underneath the sinkhole caused cracking and the sinkhole is acting like a toothpaste tube…that H2S known to be in the Napoleonville Dome caused the closing of a vent because that one cannot be flared to release the methane uprising pressure because oxidation turns it into sulfuric acid. With each vent that closes, that much more pressure builds…which has now grown in that area to…is it now nine acres… And you've read on these blogs that hydrogen sulfide eats metal…READ gas pipelines, laced throughout the area. Oh, but you, and several others here keep saying, no matter what the news…well, it ain't so bad. What's your game? Don't you WANT the people of the entire region to take this seriously? Or NOT.

    That sinkhole is now right at the 2 million barrels of butane. That whole parish needs to evacuate immediatly don't you agree?

      Hi timemachine2020,

      I don't know what will happen with this. Maybe it will get to a certain point and nothing will happen, or it could get a whole lot worse.

      I have read there is dangerous fumes, there was talk about radiation, and I don't see how their drinking water could be safe.

      Personally I think it's an unsafe area. I would not want to live there and if I did, I would be long gone.
      I would rather be safe than take a chance.

    Because the frequency of events has been increasing,everybody must do whatever is necessary to protect themselves and their loved ones.
    It is best not to hesitate to take whatever action needed.
