Another Lake Peigneur Disaster Bubbling?
 
02:02
More than three decades ago, an unusual disaster occurred near Jefferson Island. On November 20th 1980, an oil company drilling beneath Lake Peigneur struck an underwater salt dome causing a sinkhole that sucked in several homes, the drilling platform, 11 barges, and a portion of the Jefferson Island Salt Mine. The entire lake drained into the salt mine causing the flow of the Delcambre Canal to reverse to refill the lake. Luckily during the disaster all workers on the drilling platform and those in the salt mine were able to escape as well as a local fisherman boating nearby, and no injuries were reported. Years later residents are still concerned with the bubble that they see from time to time, fearing that another sinkhole could form at the bottom of the lake. Thursday, News 10's Caroline Balchunas visited the lake where authorities were investigating lines of bubbles that resurfaced.

Lake Peigneur Disaster
 
01:13
At that time, Diamond Crystal Salt Company operated the Jefferson Island salt mine under the lake, while a Texaco oil rig was drilling down from the surface of the lake searching for petroleum. Due to a miscalculation, the 14-inch drill bit entered the mine, starting a remarkable chain of events which at the time turned an almost 10 foot deep freshwater lake into a salt water lake with a deep hole. It is difficult to determine exactly what occurred, as all of the evidence was destroyed or washed away in the ensuing maelstrom. The now generally accepted explanation is that a miscalculation by Texaco regarding their location resulted in the drill puncturing the roof of the third level of the mine. This created an opening in the bottom of the lake, similar to removing the drain plug from a bathtub. The lake then drained into the hole, expanding the size of that hole as the soil and salt were washed into the mine by the rushing water, filling the enormous caverns left by the removal of salt over the years. The resultant whirlpool sucked in the drilling platform, eleven barges, many trees and 65 acres of the surrounding terrain. Mr. Viator, a local fisherman, was able to drive his small boat to the shore and tie it up to a tree, and get out, to later watch it and the tree get sucked down.[4] So much water drained into those caverns that the flow of the Delcambre Canal that usually empties the lake into Vermilion Bay was reversed, making the canal a temporary inlet. This backflow created, for a few days, the tallest waterfall ever in the state of Louisiana, at 164 feet (50 m), as the lake refilled with salt water from the Delcambre Canal and Vermilion Bay. The water downflowing into the mine caverns displaced air which erupted as compressed air and then later as 400 foot geysers up through the mineshafts.[4] Remarkably, there were no injuries and no human lives lost in this dramatic event. All 55 employees in the mine at the time of the accident were able to escape thanks to well-planned and rehearsed evacuation drills, or through heroic efforts by co-workers. The staff of the drilling rig fled the platform before it was sucked down into the new depths of the lake. Three dogs were reported killed, however. Days after the disaster, once the water pressure equalized, nine of the eleven sunken barges popped out of the whirlpool and refloated on the lake's surface.

California's punishing rain creates rare spectacle
 
02:43
First the rain, now the drain. California’s punishing rain this month has flooded neighborhoods and triggered evacuations. It has also pushed Lake Berryessa in Napa County way beyond capacity, pouring water into its bathtub-like drain. It’s the first time that’s happened in 11 years, reports CBS News correspondent Mireya Villarreal. “Back in October, we were essentially half-full,” said Roland Sanford, general manager of the Solano County Water Agency. “This is the first time that the lake has been so low, and filled-up and spilled in one year.” What looks calm at the top of the “Morning Glory Spillway” looks like a raging torrent at the bottom. The spillway is located 200 feet from the Monticello Dam. It is shaped like a funnel, 72-feet wide at its lip and narrowing to 28 feet at an outlet down at the Putah Creek. When water in the lake rises to more than 440 feet above sea level, it spills over the lip of a funnel and pours into the creek 700 feet below. When the reservoir reaches capacity, this spillway can take in about 48,000 cubic feet of water per second. That’s the equivalent of draining half of an Olympic sized pool in one second.

Shortcuts in engineering design can lead to engineering disasters. Engineering is the science and technology used to meet the needs and demands of society.[1] These demands include buildings, aircraft, vessels, and computer software. In order to meet society’s demands, the creation of newer technology and infrastructure must be met efficiently and cost-effectively. To accomplish this, managers and engineers have to have a mutual approach to the specified demand at hand. This can lead to shortcuts in engineering design to reduce costs of construction and fabrication. Occasionally, these shortcuts can lead to unexpected design failures.

Jefferson Island Salt Mine Collapse: The REAL story of Lake Peigneur
 
22:49
My father witnessed the Jefferson Island salt mine collapse in 1980 and the circumstances surrounding it. He was on the balcony of the mansion during the collapse, whose chimney still juts out of the water to this day. Here he tells the REAL story behind how it happened. An old geological study showed the mine would collapse eventually due to an underwater stream, regardless of any drilling. Lawyers from Live Oak Gardens found the study first and kept it hidden. In addition, the salt mine company was illegally and dangerously mining in certain areas and not logging it. Both Live Oak Gardens and the salt mine company got millions from Texaco.

Massive Sinkhole Documentary - World's Most Terrifying Sinkhole - Documentary HD Sinkholes may vary in size from 1 to 600 m (3.3 to 2,000 ft) both in diameter and depth, and vary in form from soil-lined bowls to bedrock-edged chasms. Sinkholes may be formed gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide. On 2 July 2015, scientists reported that active pits, related to sinkhole collapses and possibly associated with outbursts, have been found on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko by the Rosetta space probe. Sinkholes may capture surface drainage from standing or running water, but may also form in high and dry places in specific locations. The formation of sinkholes involves natural processes of erosion [9] or gradual removal of slightly soluble bedrock (such as limestone) by percolating water, the collapse of a cave roof, or a lowering of the water table. Sinkholes often form through the process of suffosion. Thus, for example, groundwater may dissolve the carbonate cement holding the sandstone particles together and then carry away the lax particles, gradually forming a void. Occasionally a sinkhole may exhibit a visible opening into a cave below. In the case of exceptionally large sinkholes, such as the Minyé sinkhole in Papua New Guinea or Cedar Sink at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky, an underground stream or river may be visible across its bottom flowing from one side to the other. Sinkholes are common where the rock below the land surface is limestone or other carbonate rock, salt beds, or in other rocks, such as gypsum, [10] that can be dissolved naturally by circulating ground water. Sinkholes also occur in sandstone and quartzite terrains. As the rock dissolves, spaces and caverns develop underground. These sinkholes can be dramatic, because the surface land usually stays intact until there is not enough support. Then, a sudden collapse of the land surface can occur.

This short clip is from Davitt McAteer's 1985 25-minutes video - Monongah 1907. The entire video, rich with detail about this disaster also traces the development of mine safety laws in the US. Monongah 1907 is now available on DVD for $14.95. For ordering information, send an email to: [email protected] . And don't miss Davitt McAteer's book, Monongah: The Tragic Story of the 1907 Monongah Mine Disaster, the Worst Industrial Accident in U.S. History, recently published by the West Virginia University Press (2007) http://www.wvupress.com. "When I heard that Davitt McAteer was working on a book detailing the unparalleled disaster at the Monongah mines, I though it promising news ... no one is positioned better than Davitt MsAteer to examine the Monongah mining disaster of 1907 from all the perspectives required: historical, sociological, legal, and economic. Monongah is an important book, long overdue." From the Introduction by Robert B. Reich, former Secretary of the US Department of Labor, 1993 to 1997. Davitt McAteer, ESQ., a native of West Virginia, has devoted much of his professional efforts to mine health and safety issues. During the 1970s, Davitt led the safety and health programs of the United Mine Workers and founded the Occupational Safety and Health Law Center. During the Clinton Administration, he served as the Assistant Secretary for Mine Safety and Health at the United States Department of Labor. In January of 2006, West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin asked Mr. McAteer to serve as personal advisor and conduct an independent investigation into the cause or causes of the Sago Mine Disaster and the Aracoma Alma No. 1 Mine Fire, both of which occurred in January 2006.

Now in light of the catastrophe in Assumption Parish we are asking for AGL Resources/Jefferson Island Storage & Hub to voluntarily withdraw their permit application. They have refused. We have asked Governor Jindal to use his privilege as Governor to deny the permit application and block all future requests for salt cavern storage at the Jefferson Island Salt Dome.

Turkey mining accident: 18 workers trapped after underground water floods mine
 
01:03
Authorities are rushing to rescue 18 miners trapped in a mine in southern Turkey, but according to a government official cited by local media, the trapped workers may have already drowned. The accident took place at the Has Sekerler mine near the town of Ermenek around noon on Tuesday, local newspaper Hurriyet Daily News reported. Karaman Governor Murat Koca said about 40 workers were in the mine when the accident occurred. Some workers left the site after one of the galleries experienced problems. Eighteen workers became trapped after underground water flooded the mine. The exact cause of the flood was not immediately apparent, but Turkey's emergency agency said there was a broken water pipe inside the mine. The mining workers are now trapped some 350 metres below ground, while about 11,000 cubic meters of water flooded the area. Rescue workers are in the process of using giant pipes to pump water out of the mine. The accident represents the second large-scale mining accident in Turkey since May, when more than 300 workers were killed after a fire broke out in a mine in Soma. The Turkish government is under immense pressure as the accidents highlight lax regulations for the working conditions of miners. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Avondale Mine Disaster Investigation; Part 1
 
09:46
This was a follow up investigation on the anniversary of the Avondale Mine Disaster of 1869 in which 110 miners lost their lives. During this clip I conducted an isolation session, I dressed as a miner of the period in hopes it would elicit a reaction from spirits still remaining at the site. As you will hear for yourself, they did respond to my questions. Also, there is an error in the time stamp when I ask if Evan Huges is still the inside boss. The response is at 7:48, not 4:48. As with all alleged paranormal evidence, you should view this video with an objective state of mind...question everything.

Avondale Mine Disaster - Walkthrough part 1
 
12:54
We decided to do a walkthrough of the site in order to give people a clear view of what remains, and to point out potential hazards. We highly recommend that should you visit this site allow ample time to familiarise yourself with the location, and please dont take any unnecessary risks. We mentioned in this video that the miners had recently returned after a three month strike, and that tension was high between Welsh and Irish miners. Animosity also remained high between the miners and the labor management. These miners were not part of the union, they were on strike for better working conditions as well as the amount of time they had to work while on their shifts. The Stueben shaft in which this fire took place had only one entrance and exit, so when the fire erupted they were trapped without any hope of escape. In our opinion after reading the inquest and testimony regarding the cause of the fire, we believe this was not an accident, we believe the fire was set intentionally. Anson Dunn, an Irish miner was hired on the day of the fire, he was the last man to leave the shaft that morning, the fire broke out minutes after he reached the exit. Also, the majority of the jury for the inquest was comprised of officials for the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad. Their subsequent findings was that a spark from a ventilating furnace traveled some 160' and started the fire in the shaft...its an unbelievable verdict in our opinion. The Avondale Mine Disaster of Sept.6th,1869, claimed the lives of 110 miners, left behind were 72 widows and 158 fatherless children. This was one of the largest mine disasters in our nations history.

The Town That Was - full documentary on Centralia, Pennsylvania
 
01:10:51
In 1962, a trash fire ignited a seam of anthracite coal beneath Centralia, Pennsylvania, a once thriving mining town of over 1600 people. By the mid 1980's, giant plumes of smoke and deadly carbon monoxide gases billowed from fissures in the ground, the local highway cracked and collapsed, trees were bleached white and petrified, as the fire continued to rage unchecked. It wasn't until a young boy nearly died after falling into a smoldering mine subsidence that the government was pressed into action. After estimating the cost of extinguishing the fire at over a half a billion dollars, the government opted to raze the town and relocate its residents. Today, 11 die-hards remain. Filmed over a period of five years with interviews ranging from former residents to Congressmen, "The Town That Was" is an intimate portrait of John Lokitis, the youngest remaining Centralian, and his quixotic fight to keep alive a hometown that has literally disintegrated under his feet. His unbowed determination and steadfast refusal to acknowledge defeat reveal a man, a town, a region, and a way of life abandoned and forgotten.
