This sinkhole is a bigger deal than some might think.
What is the Mitt Obomney plan on this, anybody know, other than get out of Dodge?
First of all there are some 50 salt domes in the area of Assumption Parish. The story of what is in them seems to change daily. If this gas is ignited the explosion would roughly be one and one half times larger than the biggest nuclear device in U.S. service. This is not taking into consideration the oil and gas pipelines in the area, all about 50 miles from Baton Rouge.
Some estimates from Deborah Dupre’s sources indicate a blast area of some 4 KM, enough to damage cement buildings. It would include Donaldsonville, Louisiana. There are huge refineries all over the area all the way to Houston, many pipelines and smaller refineries. Locals are reporting tremors in the area.
The sinkhole area is emitting seismic signals that are being recorded, according to Seismologist Stephen Horton at the University of Memphis. Horton’s work at the university involves monitoring the New Madrid fault line for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) including the Louisiana sinkhole disaster.
The massive butane pocket is several hundred feet from the sinkhole, if it breaches a lightning strike or other spark would produce unimaginable results throwing radioactive particles for large distances.
We are talking about more than a sinkhole here, we are talking about global phenomena. You won’t get confirmation of this from sheriff Mike Waguespak.
“Simply put, the Bayou Corne Salt Dome Collapse, the Plumes from several dormant volcanic areas, the Earthquakes along the edge of the plate at fracking / injection/ drilling sites, the mystery booms / rumbles toward the center of the plate……. all can be explained by excessive pressure on the craton.. moving the whole plate in one MASSIVE event — taking place currently — taking months to complete the process..
For certain it started last year… carrying on to today .. I am certain we will see more events similar in the near future (months or less).”
“Crosstex Energy LP of Dallas plans to begin on Tuesday shifting liquid butane from one underground storage cavern to another in the Napoleonville Salt Dome, moving the flammable product 1,000 feet farther away from a large sinkhole in northern Assumption Parish, company officials said.”
“No one has said a thing yet as to the explosive force but a few people looking at a worst case event have spoken up and see things from another view point. From not only the salt domes but underground movement,loud booms,cracking on fault systems,earthquakes,methane caps underground, fracturing along the New Madrid fault system and the deep gulf floor,and from center of the Gulf to the Great lakes.”
“The ‘professionals’ will NEVER really tell you whats going on with Bayou Corne.. because this would mean ‘they’ must admit a global unrest event is taking place.. and they CANNOT do that .. since they have already made the vested claims that everything is normal.. and nothing is out of the ordinary when it comes to earthquakes, volcanoes, or other massive geologic movements CLEARLY TAKING PLACE DAILY/WEEKLY NOW…

Comment from local in the area:
“One crazy thing when I am 200 miles away from a H BOMB blast like what was written up if the gas well salt dome explodes my place will be flat as a rock”
“Earlier it was reported the butane-filled well is only 1500 feet from the sinkhole and it will not be emptied.”
A breach of that well, Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack said, could be “catastrophic,” CNN reports.
If ignited, the butane well would release as much explosive energy as 100 Hiroshima bombs, Deborah Dupré’s scientist sources told her Sunday.
Potential butane explosive capacity calculated
“The 1.5 million barrels of liquid butane 1500 feet from the sinkhole has an explosive capacity of 100 Hiroshima nuclear bombs, 1.5 times the explosive force of the largest thermonuclear weapon in current service in the U.S., according to Wikipedia scientific data and popular citizen reporter, Dutchsince, and confirmed by Dupré’s sources this weekend.
Excluding secondary oil and gas pipeline and refinery explosions, direct effects of such a single bomb blast in Bayou Corne, fifty miles from Baton Rouge, would include Donaldsonville, Louisiana, according to NUKEMAP simulations showing an H-bomb this size would produce:”
“Fire-ball radius: (central orange circle): 0.62 km / 0.39 mi. Maximum size of the nuclear fireball; relevance to live effects depends on height of detonation.
“Air blast radius: 3.8 km / 2.1 mi (red shaded circle) 20 psi overpressure; heavily built concrete buildings are severely damaged or demolished; fatalities…”
“YES here are the PLANTS

The world’s largest sinkhole is near Cairo Egypt and it is 74 miles long.
The 2005 swirling vortex of doom!
Cutting through the red tape, using the Jack Reed Theory, the New Madrid Fault just about points to the Assumption Parish sinkhole. Now this may be a coincidence.
