UPDATE: Podcast interview with Wilma Subra.
Here is an update from the ground in Louisiana:
Late morning today the sink hole expanded. 50 feet of property on the SW side of the sink hole fell into the sinkhole.
Two workers were skimming diesel form the surface of the sink hole. They had to be rescued by an air boat. Their boat, which was tied to a tree, sank into the sink hole.
Visions of Lake Peigneur.
Work on the sink hole has been suspended.
At the same time the rig began to be constructed on a pad 950 feet from the sink hole.
Lots of respiratory complaints and headaches and burning eyes.
Additional update from today and links to earlier information HERE.
