Officials: Quakes increasing near sinkhole — “It’s unknown what this may mean” — “USGS is continuously monitoring this activity”

Title: 9:45 a.m. Increased Seismic Activity Reported
Source: Assumption Parish Police Jury
Date: Sept 12, 2012

There has been reported increased seismic activity in the Bayou Corne/Grand Bayou area. This activity is not the sharp tremors that were occurring prior to the development of the sinkhole; however, indications show (through monitors set up by USGS) that seismic activity has been occurring NW of the sinkhole and it’s unknown at this time what this may mean. USGS is continuously monitoring this activity.

    Every time I read about this sinkhole it reminds me of "Salmon", and "Sterling", the nuclear test detonations which took place in the Tatum Salt Dome in Mississippi. (1964, and 66' respectively)

    The clip above is from this documentary, which I cannot watch without becoming furious at the madmen behind it all.

      I just finished watching.. I've been camping at the Carson (Gasbuggy) site. My grandfather served in the military and my mother was an oil(wo)man, later an engineer for Sun Oil. They knew about the site and I distinctly remember being told not to go wandering in those woods, but never really knew why (I was really young). Now I know why. That's nuts. Just.. nuts.

    Forgot to mention,

    Those insane bastards even experimented with using Nukes for fracking. It worked, but the gas was contaminated.

    It's in that "Atomic Journeys" documentary I posted.

      @FA; I was thinking the same thing & posted something here when I'd first heard of "naturally occurring radioactive materials" being "stored" there?!!~ Every time I see any industrial cesspools of foul crap along the edges of industrial areas,adjacent railroad right of way corridors,etc.~now I visualize drums of carcinogenic crap oozing out,maybe floating to the top & evaporating into the air?!!!~"They"-Big Nuke should be paying for psychological treatments & anti-depressants,tranquilizers-as well as the terminal illnesses racking up against them,but for which they will NEVER be held accountable-including my sickened loved ones followed by myself!!!~the world feels really "dirty" to me these days and I'm getting tired of "forcing" down food & drink & viewing the once-welcome rain as though it were concentrated sulfuric acid or something that I expect droplets on my exposed skin to start burning & blistering any time I get caught in the rain?!! Somehow "12/21/2012" Mayan Calendar event described as a "New Age" doesn't sound like it's gonna be a "good" thing as has been implied by more optimistic theorist's contentions?!! please excuse me now while I go cough up a lung….the rotten mother fracker's!! 🙁

    If hollowed out salt domes that they are using for storage is leaking gas or contaminated concentrated drilling muds, then a void will develop and groundwater will want to enter through the leak points and start eroding/melting away the salt causing a cave-in or partial collapse. Drillers on rigs usually take a hike when they hear loud noises coming from their drill hole. Sensors picking up quakes is not a good sign.

    Why is there almost no coverage on this anywhere?

    Why was there almost no coverage on the recent new large earthquake near

    Why is there far too much coverage of irrelevant nonsense?

    Why do you think that is?

    • SuI33

      The short answer? Bilderberg, CFR, et al. You'll have to look it up.
      This video may be a decent place to start:

      So, is anyone aware of what this strange phenomena may imply for the future of the Gulf Coast, based on historical evidence (in layman's terms plz)?

      As if though those poor people in the Gulf haven't gone through enough already…

    • harengus_acidophilus

      Classic downplay.

      This "roaring silence" is a clear sign.
      We are in a terrible mess.

      • NoPrevarication NoPrevarication


        Why do you not mention ABC??

        • Cataclysmic Cataclysmic

          NoPrevarication, Actually, Abc is mentioned.. they are partners in crime with GE on A and E with the Hearst Corporation.. if you look deeply at the list you will see partnerships with the other nuke owners/manufactures.. Viacom, Bain Capital, Comcast are all in partnership with nbc/GE and work together.. add sony, toshiba, Hitachi, for necessary tech in the media industry.. and pretty soon the dots connect everywhere.. CBS = Westinghouse.. and on and on it goes.. unbelievable on some levels and certainly explains how we got into this mess.. and the only way out, will be to re-regulate how many stations can be owned by any one group.. Deregulating Media was the start…

  • SuI33

    It just occurred to me; is there a good likelihood that these series of small quakes could lead up to one HUGE quake??

  • markww markww

    New Madrid fault acting up. Earthquakes mean seismic activity. space station needs to do x rays and pictures or sonar see what is happening underground, from the onset it was from al the plate shifts look out in California now foul sulfur smell either a volcano is starting up or a earthquake is coming. These massive earthquakes all over is messing with the American plate.

    • harengus_acidophilus

      I've had said it to you, and im saying it again:


      It's serious, pls don't joke!



        are you serious harengus_acidophilus? This planet's being bombarded 24-7 with X-rays…

        • harengus_acidophilus

          "…to get a clear pcture…"

          On x-ray imagery you see differences in density.
          You need a beam through earth to take one(!) picture.
          Thousands of kms of solid/molten rock absorbes a lot of energy but you need a detectabe "output" on the other side.

          But to locate the coria you have to do something like CT, eg. you must take hundreds of single pictures .

          Think about the quantities…

    I believe that you'd kill anyone exposed to the amount of xrays you'd need to penetrate the earth to sufficient depth from space. /not sure about everyone in the world. Good thing it's not possible to do so, or those aholes would have tried it.

  • markww markww

    Laser x ray works it is pin pointed to the area that needs to be looked at and sonar works. It does not take much either to see the surface shifts no more than what people use to roll around looking under rocks and looking for pipes and things. It is either check the situation or people could die from a massive explosions and earthquakes it gets you some detailed answers. If you do nothing millions could die

    Continuing collapse of the dome..localized geological disturbances..further release of contaminants.

  • Maggie123

    These trembles are *not* showing up on the USGS site. The site only shows 2.5+, I've not been able to get it to show lesser rumblings. Not sure what this means but offer the info for what it's worth.

    Corporations don't worry about people with death wish motivator because they are not live. If people with an open and expansive attitude toward life were more represented in the ptb we would have a different an sustaining trajectory for the future.

    It may well be too late; we need a sustaining pathway forward, NOW!
