Bayou Corne Sinkhole Video & Related Pictures

by Courtney C Horne @FireezDragon

The Bayou Corne Sinkhole ate some trees Wednesday night. The video that the advocate article shared from the youtube channel of the Assumption Parish Government was pretty horrifying.

Seeing it reminded me to post some pictures I took down that way recently.  Driving through Bayou Corne you now see signs on the side of the road expressing the community’s frustration and anger with the sinkhole and Texas Brine.

“Gas under our homes: would you feel safe??”

“365 Days and still waiting for responsible care”

These signs line Highway 70- which may be in danger itself from the growing hole eating our state.

In fact, that dark splotch in the middle of this picture right here is the sinkhole- edging up on the highway..
