More action was captured Thursday at the year-old, 24-acre opening in the earth near Bayou Corne when another tree was pulled into the Assumption sinkhole.
At approximately 9 a.m. Thursday morning, an additional tree (in the same area as yesterday afternoon’s slough in) went down into the sinkhole, according to Assumption Parish officials. A video was captured at that time and can be viewed at the top of this story.
Video of Wednesday’s dramatic action has been viewed by thousands on social media and throughout the internet. In that video, the sinkhole swallowed a sizeable clump of tall cypress in less than a minute.
