Nature and the fossil fuel industry is causing mayhem in Southern Louisiana.
An update on the mayhem caused by Issac: Hurricane Isaac Aftermath
From the department of Who To Believe:
Didn’t they tell us the BP spill was all cleaned up? Mayhem continues from the BP oil spill with tar balls washing up on beaches.
“It is possible that oil and oily material present in the environment as a result of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill will wash up on beaches, barrier islands, marshes, and other areas along Louisiana’s coast during and following severe weather events,” said a notice on the state’s emergency notification website, emergency.louisiana.gov.
Two from the department of We. Never. Learn.:
Lake Peigneur, the lake that disappeared into a salt mine when a drill rig accidentally drilled into the mine, has new bubbling. This from a local:
The lake filled up shortly after the event. Then AGL solution mined two caverns in the salt dome and filled the caverns with natural gas. AGL has an application to add additional caverns to their facility.
Apparently Isaac caused a new oil spill. Oiled animals found in Myrtle Grove marshes in wake of Hurricane Isaac
From the department of The Disappeared:
An update on the Assumption Parish sinkhole from a local:
Three new bubbling areas were identified yesterday. One in Bayou Corne, one in Grand Bayou and one in Triche Canal.
The drilling rig is back up after the hurricane.

This situation could get to be really bad. The storage of excess natural gas (stored under pressure) which is a gas and tends to rise upwards can produce very dangerous situations. Sounds like it is already happening!
You’re right! There are pipelines and caverns full of explosive hydrocarbon products.
