NAPOLEONVILLE - Analysts pulled gas samples today from the bubbling Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou areas in their continuing search to find out what's causing them.
The Department of Environmental Quality and Department of Natural Resources have been in the area since July 14 trying to determine the source of the gas bubbles. A spokesperson said samples taken today were intended to validate samples the teams had already pulled from the area.
The U. S. Geological Survey encouraged people living in the area to continue to report any tremors felt in the community to the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, either online or by calling (985) 369-7386.
