A sinkhole swallows trees in the Louisiana bayou swamp and this is caught on video at the exact moment the sinkhole forms. The amazing video shows how the sinkhole swallows trees, taking them under the water in seconds. This is a show only nature could provide. According to UPI.com on Aug. 22, the sinkhole in Assumption Parish swampland continues to expand.
This huge sinkhole, which first opened up in August of last year, is being monitored by authorities as it continues to grow. It has been swallowing up land in Louisiana at such a fast rate that the sinkhole has now forced an entire town in Louisiana to evacuate.
This is no little sinkhole in someone's yard, this sinkhole has already swallowed up 24 acres of land. The video footage released of this sinkhole shows how it just sucked up trees, land and even water as it opens up. It looks like the bottom just fell out of the earth that this land was sitting on and it took only seconds for the sinkhole to claim its surroundings.
So far 350 residents of Bayou Corne have been evacuated for fear their homes may be in danger. Authorities are monitoring the sinkhole and updating alert statuses related to seismic activity within the sinkhole and for the surrounding area. Watch the video above and see if you agree that the power unleashed by mother nature in this case is a jaw-dropping sight to see.
