Lots of good pictures here, but I'm surprised they didn't include anything on the 1980 disaster at Lake Peigneur in Southern Louisiana. The lake was right on top of a salt dome where extensive underground mining operations were underway, while up on the surface a drilling crew was sinking a hole to try to intercept oil pockets on the flank of the dome. What could go wrong?
When the drill intercepted one of the mines and turned the lake into a big toilet bowl people on the surface and underground all had to scramble for their lives.
There is a lot of aerial footage of the event and interviews with some locals on this You Tube site. Pretty interesting if you haven't seen it.
