Gov. Jindal to visit Bayou Corne community
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.
