|From New Orleans Attorney Stuart Smith's blog: "It started this summer when residents of Bayou Corne, a small bayou community about 70 miles west of New Orleans, began feeling tremors and reporting foul odors. Then in August, a large sinkhole -- near the site of a cavern that has long been mined by the Texas Brine Co. -- threatened the town and forced evacuations. And the news keeps getting worse: Now officials are warning the residents of a powerful buildup of methane gas under Bayou Corne that could cause a massive explosion."
