Massive sinkhole appears in Louisiana bayou8/11/2012
As if Louisiana's Gulf Coast hasn't suffered enough in recent years, here's another natural disaster wreaking havoc in one of the country’s most beautiful corners. This one is extremely localized, but that's likely cold comfort to anyone who lives near what appears to be a giant sinkhole in the middle of the bayou south of Baton Rouge. One-hundred-foot-tall cypress trees are among the victims of the sinkhole, which is around 324 feet wide and 50 feet deep — though it drops to 422 feet in one spot. The most menacing part? Before the sinkhole appeared, residents say the bayou was “bubbling” like a “boiling crayfish pot.” [Source]
