Giant and Unprecedented Sinkholes?

The Louisiana Assumption Parish Bayou Corne sinkhole is truly unprecedented globally, according to geologists. It is a living breathing thing that broke the record for breaching and compromising a salt dome to the largest extent know in history, and the 3400 foot deep cavern that caused it is still collapsing. Moreover, this now 15 acre sinkhole is leaking methane gases and crude as it continues to bubble in the bayou. 350 individuals were/are under a mandatory evacuation order, as this monster sinkhole shows no signs of receding. These effected residents began receiving weekly checks in the amount of $875, and now Texas Brine is supposedly preparing to offer settlements to the evacuated residents.,

So, how does an historical event like this escape national media coverage? Better yet, why does the national media ignore this event? Could it be that Texas Brine, an Oil Field Service Company, which provides a broad range of service including Waste Water(Brine) disposal to all major drillers including Halliburton who serves BP, and who once mined this salt cavern, and owns the salt dome, does not want the publicity? Because this was no natural disaster; it was the consequence of mining activities conducted by Texas Brine. It's a well known fact that the media and the authorities have been bought out by the corporations. Take the BP Oil Spill. Facts are still hidden including the oil that has been "cleaned" with lethal Corexit, not to mention, the people suffering from its effects, some, or even many of whom have not survived.

Bubbles were spotted in Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou in June 2012. Two months later, the ground opened up and left a nine-acre sinkhole. Residents were evacuated and have been for the past seven months. Most affected residents began receiving weekly checks from Texas-Brine in the amount of $875 per week.“

Sinkhole in NJ warehouse swallows man and forklift:

A forklift operator and his forklift were swallowed by an 8-foot-deep sinkhole (left) 40 feet by 40 feet wide when the floor of the New Jersey warehouse (May 23, 2013) where he was working gave way underneath him. He was rescued and taken to a hospital with back injuries after the fall into the hole in East Rutherford.  The warehouse, which stores nonperishable food, was evacuated after the floor collapsed.
