Louisiana State Representative Joe Harrison: When we had the big meeting in Pierre Part, it was brought out about the pipelines that we did have, and the potential danger of the pipelines.

One scientist from LSU indicated one pipeline, which was a 36 inch pipeline, was kinked on both sides — it was amazing to me that it did not break — and said if it would have actually broken at that time the sinkhole started, it could have taken out over 2 miles of area.

That’s a scary thought.

    Keep in mind that the pipelines in the area are now all empty. The bending didn't take place while they were pressurized, but after they had been emptied for safety purposes. So the warning of explosion isn't quite true.

    Mmmm. Are you sure about that Dosdos…??? Because I was following this story that second week of August…and MY recollection is ONE set of pipes was emptied AT THE TIME, AFTER THE EARTHQUAKES, AFTER THE BENT PIPE. Maybe the pipe in your memory is the one referred to as "floating" in the sinkhole. The bent pipe is a different pipe, I believe…or if it's the same pipe, it was referred to much earlier, also, in early August. Now subsequently more companies may have emptied more pipes, but Dosdos, if you have a different timeline than this scientist expert and myself, please share it specifically. Why is it that everything you, Richard, and Vic post poo poos the danger…even NOW THAT THE EXPERTS ARE WEIGHING IN ON THE SIDE OF A DIFFERENT REALITY THAN THE ONE YOU PROMOTE?
