8:55 a.m. Update from the Office of Conservation

The Office of Conservation and Assumption Parish Incident Command are reporting that seismic monitoring early Tuesday detected a brief period of increased seismic activity that appears to have been located in or near the eastern wall of the original Oxy Geismar 3 cavern. Though the number of micro-seismic events was elevated for several minutes, the number and strength were lower than have been witnessed in previous major events, and quickly diminished. Conservation and Assumption Parish Incident Command will continue to monitor the situation and advise the public of any developing concerns.
