There are currently many more homes and lives being impacted by the sinkhole and gas bubbles in this area than only those within the small evacuation order that is currently in place, but those outside of the evacuation zone cannot get any assistance to help them leave the area. Look at that picture! This thing is disgusting and killing everything around it! The stench is awful, and can be smelled by people well outside of the evacuation zone. Doctors and toxocologists that responded to the BP oil spill said: "If you've smelled it, you've been poisoned", and "There is no safe level of toxins". Sign sign sign please!! Help those of us that have nowhere to go, and no way to get there, get some rightfully due assistance!!

      Erin Brockovich takes on sinkhole case

      PIERRE PART - Environmental activist Erin Brockovich told a group of Bayou Corne residents on Saturday that standing up and taking legal action against the company that owns a failed salt dome cavern believed to have caused the Assumption Parish sinkhole is the only way they will find relief from the emergency.
