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.

(Search 'sinkhole' on OpedNews for related articles)
