BAYOU CORNE - Governor Bobby Jindal scheduled a meeting today with families and officials in the Bayou Corne community, which has been battling the effects of a large sinkhole.

Buyouts began this week for property owners evacuated or affeted by the sinkhole, which is on land owned by Texas Brine LLC. Experts believe the collapse of a brine cavern underneath the sinkhole caused it to form.

Jindal scheduled a press conference for 2 p.m. after the meeting.

News 2 will have details tonight at 4, 5 and 6.
