Strode told the Courier-Journal that emergency personnel allowed museum staff to remove the only surviving 1983 Corvette, which was at risk of joining the other cars in the sinkhole.
“Before we do anything, like remove the other cars, we want that assessment so we know if there’s been any structural damage to the Sky Dome,” Strode told the Courier-Journal.
The museum is closed for the day.
An estimate of the cost of the damage done to vehicles and the museum has not yet been determined.
No injuries have been reported and Bowling Green city spokeswoman Kim Lancaster told The Associated Press that this appears to be the first incident of its kind at the property.
Bowling Green is also the only place where General Motors builds Corvettes. The city sits in the midst of Kentucky’s Western Pennyroyal area, where many of the state’s longest and deepest caves run underground, according to The Associated Press.

UPDATE: 24.7.2013

The recent Gas Rig Explosion and fire on the Hercules 265 rig in the Gulf of Mexico has again raised concerns over the seismic stability in the region.  As reported here earlier in the week, MP has also discovered new info regarding the #BayouCorne #Sinkhole dispelling Methane and NatGas.


As we are not really in the "TinFoil Hat" business lately, these events and #Fracking quakes in the area are all separate anomalies AND distinct Precursors to an oncoming bigger event.
 [The fire engulfed..] drilling rig off the Louisiana coast that was surrounded by a “major cloud of gas” after it experienced a blowout, officials said late Tuesday.

Stacey Plaisance, AP Reporter: [...] The gentle bubbles, actually natural gas spewing from a 22-acre sinkhole caused by a collapsed salt cavern.

John Boudreaux, Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness: There could be an explosion hazard and/or methane does displace oxygen, so by displacing oxygen then it becomes an asphyxiant.

WE will cover this event and Preparedness information on tonight's #SitPrep on USAEBN


Stay Tuned...

Blaze erupts on Gulf of Mexico rig after natural gas blowout - NBC

 A natural gas well off the Louisiana coast caught fire, hours after a blowout that prompted the evacuation of 44 workers. - NBC

A fire erupted on drilling rig off the Louisiana coast that was surrounded by a “major cloud of gas” after it experienced a blowout, officials said late Tuesday.

The blaze began about 10:50 p.m. local time (11:50 p.m. ET) on the Hercules 265 natural gas platform, which is located around 55 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico.
Eileen Angelico, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, said no one was on board when the fire started. The cause of the blaze was unknown early Wednesday.
She added that personnel from Wild Well Inc had been brought in to try and get the well under control, but when they’d approached the blaze Tuesday night they’d determined it was unsafe to get any closer when they were 200ft away from it.

The BSSE also said that a specialist boat, with both water and foam firefighting abilities, had been dispatched to tackle the blaze.

Earlier on Tuesday, 44 workers were evacuated on two lifeboats after the gas began spewing to the surface. None of them were injured, NBC station WDSU reported.
A Coast Guard cutter and two aircraft were sent to assess the situation and BSEE inspectors reported that a cloud of natural gas had formed over the well.

“A light sheen could be seen on the water one-half mile by 50 feet,” the BSEE said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that the sheen appeared to be quickly dissipating.
The portable drilling rig known as a jackup rig, was operated by Hercules Offshore. In a news release, Hercules Offshore said that they were working for Houston-based Walter Oil & Gas Corp.
Walter Oil & Gas reported to the BSEE that the rig was completing a "sidetrack well" — a means of re-entering the original well bore, Angelico said.

Sidetrack wells are sometimes drilled to remedy a problem with the existing well bore.
"It's a way to overcome an engineering problem with the original well," Ken Medlock, an energy expert at Rice University's Baker Institute told the Associated Press. "They're not drilled all the time, but it's not new."
In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded off the Louisiana coast, killing 11 workers and eventually spewing millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Louisiana sinkhole now 24 acres — Officials issue cease and desist order after gas found “approaching explosive level” coming from hole in front of homes

Published: July 21st, 2013 at 3:13 pm ET
By
WWL – AM870, July 21, 2013: Parish workers discovered water and debris moving inside the containment berm area early Friday. Bubbles on the water’s surface indicated a gas release, and there were tremors felt in the area. [...]  The periodic ‘burp’ was the second in two days and the fourth in the past two-and-a-half weeks, according to parish officials. [...] The [blue ribbon] commission, thus far, has not been able to come up with a reasonable prediction of what the future holds for the area.

The Advocate, July 20, 2013: The 24-acre Assumption Parish sinkhole underwent a periodic burp early Friday [...] on Friday, Conservation Commissioner James Welsh ordered Texas Brine Co. to cease a type of earth-probing test aimed at seeing where gas is in the shallow rock under Bayou Corne. [...] In addition to the sinkhole, gas is being released from bubbling sites in area bayous and is thought to be gathered in an aquifer and even in shallower rock under the communities. Welsh’s order follows Boudreaux’s cease and desist order to Texas Brine earlier this week after residents complained about a plugged probe site leaking gas in front of homes [...] he tested the hole and found leaking gas at a concentration that was approaching an explosive level.

This is the 2nd major blowout in the gulf in two weeks , with very little main stream coverage . The Louisiana sinkhole is deeper than 750ft and could be letting off explosive Gases.

4/3/2013 -- Bayou Corne Louisiana Salt Dome Collapse - Gas rising UNDERNEATH houses

Published on Apr 3, 2013
 
Natural Gas (methane) is rising from the pressure building deep under the salt dome complex.

The rising floor of the dome, the crude oil / methane being released -- is now beginning to spread to adjacent areas. Which means the area underneath the houses is also rising (forcing the gas / crude upwards).. creating a buildup of gas underneath the slabs of the houses .

Sooner or later, I'd expect the houses to also begin to "sink" as the dome weakens.. as the greater area continues to "deform" due to the craton pressure building further north in Arkansas/Oklahoma/Texas... Its just my personal opinion on that at the moment, but I don't see anything there that will stop further collapse in the direction of the houses.

Short of a complete halt in wider area seismic movement, I don't see HOW further collapse is not 100% expected.


In otherwords, until things calm down globally, you can expect further movement along the edge of the craton (plate).. and thus further movement / rise at the salt dome deformed edge of the craton.

If you live in the area, or live down wind from this area --- Baton Rouge, New Orleans --- you need to have a plan in place to escape any possible large scale release of gas, or explosion. While just a SMALL possibility of explosion exists, its better to be safe than sorry.

This Just in:
UPDATE: 28.2.2013

We had a Guest today call in in the second half of the Show tonight, Christina of NUKED Radio.
She also Hosts the RadChick Radiation Research & Mitigation Page on the ol' Book of face.

I personally have wanted her on SitPrep to discuss Fukushima, Monsanto, ChemTrails, and Definitely Bayou Corne Event.

She always has the most current info on Her Sites, and was Great talking with her about the current situation in LA.

Well, she posted an Update to the Seismic and Growth of the sinkhole and was Kind enough to add our Talk on the last part of the video.  Unexpected and Greatly Appreciated.

Quick sinkhole update and call-in to the "Situational Preparedness Show" with some important info for anyone still living in the area...from today Feb 27, 2013

Must listen for any residents that have not yet evacuated. Pay close attention to what the state geologist Gary Hecox says...NO ONE has ever seen an event like this and there are multiple complexities involved with the subsidence, gasses being released, geological activity and possibility of a collapse. Not to mention the toxic materials that have been stored there for decades.
