Louisiana State Representative Joe Harrison: I don’t want to start rumors [about the tremors]. People say from fracking, people say from some of the things they’re doing right now for the oil industry, which may or may not be part of it. I don’t know, I don’t even want to speculate on it.
But I do want to know if we do have something in those areas, that we are sending someone to that point and trying to get the real experts to tell us, “This is what’s happening, this is what you can expect.”
And give us some sort of monitoring system in the event that we have another major opening like this, which, God forbid, that we’re at least able to give some forewarning to people as to what we can expect in the area.
