Watched a related video that predicted this thing to swallow half of south louisiana. Kinda scared the shite out of me.

If the mississippi river could have taken natural path down atchafalaya this would have never happened

That video was so bizarre. Reminded me of some Hollywood CGI shite. Unbelievable. What makes a sinkhole happen? Too lazy to look it up.

Permitted in mid-1982, the Oxy Geismar 3 cavern in the Napoleonville Dome, a massive underground salt deposit, was closed in June 2011 after years of mining and a failed attempt by Texas Brine to expand it, state records show.

Occidental is the landowner of the 40-acre surface site, as well as the subsurface, and received brine from the mine for industrial uses. The state suit alleges that Texas Brine and Occidental mined the salt dome cavern “to the point that the cavern became structurally unstable, thereby causing the collapse of the cavern and damage to Louisiana’s waters, natural resources, and the State’s Coastal Zone.”

It would not have taken much to expand and swallow him as well. It would have been bad enough if he was in a boat but standing on land was nuts.

Does anyone know of a map showing the size of the salt dome and not just the sink hole.

If the entire dome collapsed, what areas would just disappear?
