Here are 4 video clips shot today of an eerie situation in the marsh near the sinkhole in Bayou Corne, a story I am now covering.

Bubbles coming up from the marsh in a location off Triche Canal near the sinkhole in Bayou Corne where I have been working on a story this last week.  […] Some that have already been marked off- others that appear to be additional sites to those already identified.

More to follow on the situation in Bayou Corne once my story is done. If you are from the area and want to share your input/experience please send me a message on Facebook or to

Watch more of the bubbling here

    dude… that water is not safe – human skin soaks up toxins readily…. good luck, do some liver/kidney cleansings soon

    If only we could capture the gas and use it to generate electricity, there is probably enough gas there to replace two nuclear reactors and the way things look it will be that way for years and years.

    This is not bubbling. This is beyond gurgling. This is gushing to the point of not producing a single bubble…but producing hundreds of small, continuous …and not one at a time…as before..boiling, roiling bubbles. This is like a water main break. How many of these "water main breaks" are there?

      wow! Love your description! I wish there was something that any of us could do. What will help? Do you want us to write letters? Make phone calls? what? What can people do who don't live in the immediate area? Ask!

    We're an. "If only." I think that has been the intention.

    We still don't know how much salt is melting away, far underground. But IIRC the bottom of the salt dome lies well to the west of the top, in that the bottom is wider than the top.

    The wall of the salt dome is in contact with the sedimentary rock and oil bearing layers.

    Now a plentiful supply of water is flowing into the area, via the aquifer. It makes sense that it is flowing down along the contact zone of the salt and rock, dissolving the salt, causing voids, and allowing gas and oil an avenue to the surface.

    11:15 a.m. Increased Seismic Activity
    February 4, 2013 //It has been reported to us, by Dr. Steve Horton, that there has been an above normal recording of seismic activity within the last few days. Should additional details or information regarding this situation become available, they will be posted.

    *I* predict there will be another burp/belch/fart/spontaneous eruption somewhere in the near future!!!!!

    Aren't I great considering how much gas I've been sucking????
