Researchers looking into tremors near La. sinkhole

NAPOLEONVILLE – Researchers are trying to determine the cause of small tremors recorded in the past two weeks coming from the northwest corner of a salt dome in northern Assumption Parish.

The Advocate reports that the general area of the 1- by-3-mile salt dome contains a cavern from which a company used to extract brine. A wall of the cavern collapsed and is believed to have caused a 5.5-acre sinkhole
