Louisiana Sinkhole Swallows Large Trees In One Gulp [Video]
There is an episode of Spongebob Squarepants where Spongebob and Patrick find the plug to the Main Drain at the bottom of the sea. Naturally they pull the plug and all the water drains out of the ocean. That couldn't happen in real life right? Ask folks who live in Assumption Parish and they might disagree with you.
The Bayou Corne/Grand Bayou sinkhole was first reported to officials over a year ago. Those charged with making official observations attributed the bubbling in the waters to swamp gas. They were wrong.
In August of last year officials in Assumption Parish were officially notified that a sinkhole had formed in that same location. The sinkhole continues to grow. In this incredible video you can see the shifting, sinking water swallowing huge trees whole.
