It starts around the 13-second mark.

    Hmm…interesting, I suppose, but kind of incomprehensible without context. Was a dam released? Did everyone in the town upstream flush their toilets at once? Was there an inland tsunami?

    After I watched this video, it made me think of a CBS Sunday Morning piece from a few months back. After some research, I believe this is from the Bayou Corne sinkhole in Louisiana. Here are some resources with more information about the (likely man-made) problem:

    The CBS Sunday Morning piece about sinkholes is here, with the applicable part starting just before the 3-minute mark:

    Meanwhile, the sinkhole as Assumption Parish in Louisiana continues to grow, and has even developed waves generated from some activity deep within. Experts are stumped, but the one factor they are not considering is the stress from the North American bow. Last covered in Issue 347 of this newsletter on May 26, 2013.

    Waves Recorded at Louisiana Sinkhole Which is now More than 500 Feet (150 meters) Deep

    Oil eating bacteria, which deplete the oxygen in the water, have created the largest ever “dead zone” around this sinkhole, showing how much oil is leaking from that cavern and perhaps others nearby that have been breached. This likewise was noted when the BP gulf oil spill occurred in 2010, but not to this extent. Thus the Louisiana sinkhole, as an oil leak, is worse than the BP oil spill!

    This Year’s Gulf of Mexico Dead Zone Could Be the Biggest on Record

    June 19, 2013

    ZetaTalk Comment 8/10/2013: How coincidental that the largest dead zone ever in the Gulf is clustered around the coast where the Louisiana sinkhole has been burping and burbling oil! What might be happening nearby, in that fractured oil filled salt dome, to cause this? Despite the excuses provided by the frantic establishment, the dead zone is not caused by fertilizer runoff. It is caused by oil eating bacteria which reduce the available oxygen in the water when they are feeding. This will only get worse, even if the US oil reserves are pumped out and stored elsewhere. The Gulf was leaky before the BP spill, and this will all exacerbate during the bowing of the N American continent and the rupturing of the New Madrid Fault line.
