This morning, LA Department of Wildlife & Fisheries and State Police are evaluating the sinkhole. DNR has advised that they will perform an evaluation today, as well. It will take Texas Brine and all industries involved in the drilling 2-3 days to rig back up. More specific updates will be available as the day continues. As posted previously, NO assistance funds will be distributed today. We expect an update from Texas Brine regarding this at some point today and will make that information ASAP.

    Danger is from flooding over the next days/week as Issac dumps more rain over the Mississippi delta areas. Time will tell, good the authorities are keeping close tabs on the situation. Texas Brine has quite a bit to pay out to the victims. Chevron has already made an announcement weeks ago the situation/damage to any salt dome used for storage– was not their financial responsibility–and will not be until December 31, 2012. Chevron has an eye on the situation as well.

    "Sinkhole, schminkhole
    it's really quite normal
    on a geological scale,
    if we wait long enough
    it will fill with whales!"

    That's ScienceTerrific
    from Deniability Inc.,
    we don't get too specific
    as we squirt the squid ink.*

    *thanks to poster andagi for squid ink.
    No offense meant
    to our dear ocean squirters,
    who are also under attack
    from so many quarters.

    Best wishes to all in Louisiana, be safe.
