Assumption Parish Police Jury spokeswoman Kim Torres says the sinkhole near Bayou Corne grew by 50 feet today, as the surrounding environment sloughs into it. Two cleanup workers in a boat near the site almost fell in and had to be rescued by airboat. The only reason they didn't go under was because they had their boat tied to a tree-Yikes!

We saw all the drilling trucks rolling down I-10 yesterday from Acadia Parish to the HUGE sinkhole in Assumption, and, concern is obviously growing about the size. I had a sinkhole in my backyard years ago that kept getting bigger and bigger, and let me tell you, it is a VERY scary thing. Hope the workers can figure out what to do, and keep themselves safe!
