There’s a sinkhole in Louisiana, and it’s over 400 feet deep.
The growing hole has swallowed dozens of 100-foot trees in its path and forced the evacuation of about 200 residences.
Located about 50 miles south of Baton Rouge, authorities are still uncertain what is causing the massive sinkhole, but they believe it may be a nearby salt cavern shut down last year.
The sinkhole started in July and continues to grow. But that’s not the only problem; surface bubbling in different parts of the surrounding bayou continue to grow, and radiation and fumes emanating from the area are increasing.
Disconcerting, to say the least.
