Louisiana Sinkhole Update 15 Nov 2012 – Tremors
Residents of the area around the Louisiana sinkhole have been reporting tremors, but the USGS has not detected any earthquakes.
At a meeting held about the Assumption Parish sinkhole, local residents talked about feeling tremors. One person felt the tremors in Bayou Corne and said that others felt the tremors in Pierre Part and Brule. Louisiana State Representative Joe Harrison added that his office has received calls reporting tremors in Terrebonne and Upper Lafourche Parish.
These tremors aren’t showing up on USGS maps, so I’m not sure what to make of them. For those of you in the area, what are you feeling? Are pictures falling off the walls? Is it hard to stand during the tremors? How long does the rumbling last?
Youtube user cloversweed posted a video highlighting parts of the recent meeting with commentary. He’s included links to the entire video of the meeting below the video, so it’s worth a click over there if you want to watch the whole meeting. Below that video, I’ve posted the latest flyover video from the Assumption Parish sheriff.
