BAYOU CORNE - Emergency officials in Assumption Parish scheduled a public meeting for Friday, Aug. 24 to update people on the condition of the sinkhole near Bayou Corne.

Texas Brine continued work drilling an observation well to get into a brine cavern near the sinkhole, which is on their property.  They hope the well will give them a better look at what could have caused the sinkhole, and bubbling that's been going on for months in the nearby bayous.

Parish leaders ordered people living near the sinkhole to evacuate, and Texas Brine began providing assistance checks to evacuees last week.

The meeting is scheduled for Friday at 6:30 p.m. at the St. Joseph the Worker Church Hall in Pierre Part.

News 2's Brittany Weiss will have more from Bayou Corne tonight.
