We look at degenerating meromorphic families of rational maps on P1-holomorphically parameterized by a punctured disk-and we provide examples where the bifurcation current fails to have a bounded potential in a neighborhood of the puncture. This is in contrast to the recent result of Favre- Gauthier that we always have continuity across the puncture for families of polynomials; and it provides a counterexample to a conjecture posed by Favre in 2016. We explain why our construction fails for polynomial families and for families of rational maps defined over finite extensions of the rationals ℚ.
