    "…briefing for Bayou Corne residents specific to health concerns. Information relative to updates of the sinkhole will NOT be presented…."
    So…was the last briefing before or after the H2S? Before or after it was found the exact contaminates in the sinkhole are in people's BLOOD? And the methane 30 feet below people's houses the school bus driver won't drive through?

    Why in the world wouldn't you brief people on the health information that is CURRENT? Oh, YEAH. I remember why.

    This sinkhole is a scary situation here in the Louisiana area. I will be in the sinkhole (Bayou Corne) area again soon. I will be capturing some HD footage of the sinkhole. I am also reporting on this News story for a radio show out of Fresno, California. I will update you on this important News Story by providing you with NEW HD videos soon. As you can see this sinkhole is ONLY 60 miles from the Waterford 3 Nuclear Power Plant here in Louisiana!

      Charles if you shoot video

      1. hold camera steady
      2. pan slow
      3. do not use zoom try to shoot wide

      These will make your video more easier to watch and see and will not make people dizzy when panning and shooting videos.

        The one video from the sinkhole area? It was late when we arrived. I had to act quickly to get the footage completed before it turned dark. And I had to run across the bridge because there was only 1 foot between me and the vehicles. That is the only video I have captured like that. I have over 200 videos with 1.7 million views so lot's of experience here. Just one video but I kind of like the effect even thou it was captured while I was walking. It gives one a urgent feeling kind of like the urgent feeling of help needed in the sinkhole area. but thanks

          I appreciate your video and, while the time of day wasn't ideal for filming, I have no criticism. I've been doing some research on the sinkhole, the salt dome and its' history as well as the other domes in the gulf states. I am eager to see your next video. What may seem insignificant to one person could mean a lot to someone else. Thank you for your efforts.

    This year during hurricane Isaac CNN asked to use some of my video footage which I approved. And all 3 local New Orleans TV news stations have requested and used my video footage from numerous hurricanes here in the New Orleans area. I am also reporting for a Fresno Radio station in California and they use my video footage on their live internet radio show. So thanks for the compliment emmeba!

    Louisiana sinkhole up close in HD! December 7, 2012 (TODAY) HIGH DEFINITION footage! NOTE: A few people (possibly multiple accounts don't want me to report this news story) Very aggressive individuals with some uknown agenda and or reason(s). They post harassing replies towards me and break the rules listed on this site. I inform my viewers that numerous government agencies are working in the sinkhole area and they are helping people in the community! Not sure if the individuals harassing me have ties to certain organization(s) and or possibly work for the company involved in what has occured in the sinkhole area. Government reps are now monitoring some of the postings here. So if you see any derrogatory comments posted be aware of what is occurring. This is a video link directly related to the subject posted here (Louisiana sinkhole) NO spam! For those that are interested in what is occurring in the sinkhole area I am providing you up close HD footage! Thanks! http://youtu.be/iBDUNg_s5C0
