Louisiana Sinkhole May Eventually Swallow The Earth [VIDEO]
We’ve heard of sinkholes swallowing up cars and side walks and roads before… but this underwater hole in Assumption Parish, Louisiana is pretty freaky. A couple of good-ole-boys were at the right place at the right time to capture this small grove of trees going down like something out of a sci-fi movie.
Texas-Brine owns the cavern that is suspected of being the cause. No exact measurements of the massive sinkhole in the southern Louisiana swamp. It began swallowing large sections of land on October 30, 2012. About 500 square feet of earth was lost on Oct. 9. About 150 homes have been under an evacuation order since Aug. 3. Crews are also trying to find the best way to control small amounts of Hydrogen Sulfide gas detected at the well.
