8:30 a.m. Morning Briefing

Attention: Residents and those who travel this area of LA-70… Please be prepared for lots of activity in this area. The rig that Texas Brine is bringing in will be hauled here on 30-40 trucks. DOTD continues to monitor the highway to assure its safety and integrity. Please be aware of the highway workers and drive carefully through this area. The Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office is on site (as they have been) and performs continuous patrols of the evacuation area to ensure safety and security.

The bubbling spots in the bayous are still being monitored twice a day and no changes have been observed. I’m currently waiting on official DEQ radiation sampling results from the sinkhole site and will post it ASAP.
