Earthquakes have stopped work on the sinkhole in Assumption parish (county) Louisiana. The sinkhole had grown to 9 1/2 acres in recent weeks. A huge field of natural gas mixed with petroleum had begun to surface immediately west of the sinkhole. Hydrogen sulfide has been emerging in the area as well. This had already stopped all attempts to flare off butane that had been stored in adjacent salt caverns. In addition one of the caverns is used to store radioactive waste and is being monitored by Sandia National Labs.
The sinkhole is an area where salt caverns had been used by Department of Energy to store butane and propane as part of America’s Strategic Energy Reserve program. There are 3 salt dome caverns to the east of the sinkhole containing 18.8 million barrels of butane and propane. The area has salt deposits which commercial enterprises have hydraulically mined for salt producing a salt brine product which they sell to chemical companies. The hollowed out salt dome caverns are often leased as storage facilities. The caverns at this site are all about twice the size of the Empire State building. There are several caverns that had been empty but have now been filled with methane that has been bubbling to the surface all over Louisiana as well as other places around the world. I believe that methane hydrate around the world has been melting due to increased magma flow underneath the surface. This may be related to increased earthquake and volcanic activity around the globe. There are reports that there is 50 or 60 billion tons of methane hydrate under the arctic ice cap. Methane hydrate has melted en masse in the past and caused extinction level events in wide areas of the earth. Some scientists have cause for concern in the Gulf of Mexico as well as the arctic for such a sudden release of a billion tons of methane.
Methane does burn but it is not as explosive as butane and propane. The Assumption Parish Police Jury said that the seismic monitors indicated too much activity to continue working. The latest project had been to build a barrier to stop the sinkhole from increasing in size. It seems that the salt cavern walls have lost integrity as the Jury said there is a lot of fluid in the area of the DOE storage caverns. This means that any spark could set off an explosion which I have estimated could be in excess of 2 megatons. This is equal to a 6.0 or greater earthquake. The combination of the radioactive waste and a 2 megaton explosion would make a spectacular dirty bomb. New Orleans is 75 miles away. The state capitol Baton Rouge is 50 miles away.
Independent observers have noticed sudden unexplained fires at various locations around the world. Some believe that building have accumulated natural releases of methane and hydrogen sulfide. These have ignited killing people and burning buildings. Officials in Assumption parish have checked buildings for accumulation of methane to prevent fires.
I have written about this sinkhole in the past and about the New Madrid fault zone as well. I do believe we are likely to have a series of major earthquakes on the New Madrid fault in 2013 which will devastate America. Following are some facts from those articles.
The US has more than 300,000 miles (482,803 Km) of natural gas pipelines and 150,000 miles (241,402 Km) of crude oil and gasoline pipelines. The New Madrid fault line is in the center of America and is near most oil and natural gas sources. A series of New Madrid quakes would mean that the New York banks would no longer be able to send Americans off to fight wars and to loot foreign nations.
I have predicted that there will be California earthquakes not long after the New Madrid quakes. For the benefit of those who have not experienced an earthquake please note that an 8.35 quake releases as much energy as two 25 megaton Hydrogen bombs. I have advised everyone to drive their cars with as full a tank as possible, The power grid is going down and you will want more than a 2 day’s supply of gas especially if you need to relocate due to riots or fires or a lack of drinking water. Also please be advised that the 1906 San Francisco quake threw a road 20 feet. That would do serious damage to your house, your car and the roads as well as to the water and sewer pipes which are vital to your daily life.
