Ooops! Did I do that?

Just spotted by way of BLDGBLOG.

Damn Interesting: Lake Peigneur: The Swirling Vortex of Doom. With links to video.

Got to love it when you are drilling a test-well, in a lake and punch a hole into a salt-mine underneath. Bye-Bye fresh-water lake. Then later, here comes a brand new salt-water lake.

Living on the East side of metropolitan Houston, there are quite a few salt-domes around here. Mount Belvieu is pretty famous for them. And I'm sure a number of area residents out here can remember other bad things that can happen around them from time to time.
