This is just a snippet (and this message is per the request of Lambert Strether, who has a post of his own up and trying to get further information from other Deepwater Horizon live cam bloggers or watchers):
Major changes happening at BP Disaster site:
There have been several major eruptions of the seabed under riser pipe. I’ve been watching and live-blogging all day. Some screengrabs. Whatever happened is very serious, and I am sure not good news for BP or even Republicans. Seabed dropped several feet, Spillcam covered in oil, Spew increased. New leaking hole in seabed. Possible casing failure.
NOTE Seabed dropped several feet???? –lambert
Thu updates from monkeyfister (see comments) are not encouraging:
Right now, as I type at 5:45pm CDT, there is ANOTHER eruption event happening.
Current Eruption is WAAAAY Worse than Earlier Ones…

I think this may be a “Main Event” situation. When the water clears, if it looks like the riser flow is less… it means the BOP (which BP has been keeping the ROVs away from all day long) has probably totally blown out.
Bad. Bad. Bad deal.
Yves again. Anyone who has current intelligence is encouraged to weigh in.
