Watch a Massive Sinkhole Devour Several Large Trees in 30 Seconds (Video)
For over a year, Assumption Parish, about 30 miles south of Baton Rouge, has been dealing with a massive sinkhole that’s grown from 1 acre in size to about 25 acres. Officials have been watching the sinkhole for more than a year and got an eyeful Wednesday when it devoured several large trees in about 30 seconds.
The sinkhole apparently formed when an old mine collapsed. It’s filled with water and is estimated to be around 750 feet deep.
