Trees, debris pop out of Bayou Corne
BAYOU CORNE - The massive sinkhole in Assumption Parish has grown by an acre.
Friday morning trees, debris and hydrocarbons popped up and alarmed emergency officials. Because of that, all activity around the sinkhole was suspended. It could resume Saturday.
The sinkhole is 13 acres in size. It developed in August 2012. The sinkhole has been burping and growing consistently throughout this time.
Houston-based company, Texas Brine, owns the faulty cavern believed to have created the sinkhole. The company is in the process of buying out the homeowners living near the sinkhole.
Texas Brine will be meeting with families, or their attorney's, starting Monday.
