BAYOU CORNE - Emergency officials in Assumption Parish said they're watching a piece of land which could disappear into the Bayou Corne sinkhole.
The police jury released a photo of trees on the eastern side of the sinkhole which they said was in danger of sloughing off into the 24-acre sinkhole.
They said the area included a few dozen trees, and measured 50 feet by 25 feet.
State officials filed suit earlier this month against Texas Brine LLC, which operated a salt cavern under the sinkhole which could be at fault for its appearance.
