Title: 9:45 a.m. Update

Date: July 14, 2013
Additional hydrocarbon and debris have come to the surface of the sinkhole.
Also, John Boudreaux has tagged bottom in the center of the sinkhole (where the raindrop bubbles are occurring) and the depth is over 500′; although, debris was felt at about 175′ to 200′ (while the weight continued to fall to the 500′ depth).
Attempts will be made some time this week to measure (with a longer measuring device) to obtain the depth of what is suspected to be the upside down witches hat.
We will update accordingly.
