LAKE PEIGNEUR, LA (WAFB) -

Residents who live in Lake Peigneur in Iberia Parish are worried active bubbling on the lake near their homes could be putting their lives in danger.

"They haven't told us anything, I don't know. But I wish somebody would give us some answers because it's a scary thought every night thinking what's going to happen," said Lake Peigneur resident Crystal Bell.

Homeowners are concerned the salt dome storage cavern collapse in Assumption Parish could happen to them.

The Department of Environmental Quality sent workers to the area to take samples of the mysterious bubbles on the lake surface.

Rodney Mallet, a spokesman for the agency, says thy have been getting complaints from residents there since 2007. However, he says the lab results have never showed anything DEQ believed was cause for alarm.
