Hurricanes what little we know about them, derive their strength, size and wickedness feeding off warm waters.

This current hurricane is headed towards a Newley forming and rather large sinkhole in Louisiana.

One of the largest marine disasters of all time was when a texaco 14" drill bit entered a salt mine. In the next few hours, rivers flowed backwards from the sea, the tallest waterfall in several states was formed, 9 fully loaded barges were pulled under, along with anything on the lake, including much of the nearby town.

As cavities go, this was a pretty small one, full of salt.

What if this football fields across in size sinkhole is deep enough to have a warm / hot water source? And what if there are mountain esk size cavities under this sink hole?

Scientists were very concerned about this giant sinkhole without the added worry of a hurricane parking along side of it.
W.I.B. Crealock when asked what he thought of the easily trailerable Clipper Marine sailboats by a naval design collegue, Gentelman Bill responded, "I am very proud of them". &
