Louisiana Sinkhole Still Growing

The 8.6-acre sinkhole in Assumption Parish got a little larger on Tuesday.

Parish officials reported another slough in the sinkhole Tuesday morning, estimating that the sinkhole swallowed a 5,000-square-foot section on its southwest side.

Officials estimated that the section was approximately 50 feet by 100 feet in size, adding that it will not affect traffic on La. 70 because the slough occurred on the opposite side of the sinkhole from the highway…

    Can’t we just start throwing our trash in it to fill it? Maybe something will get sucked down and plug the hole. As crazy as it may sound it may be better than having the hole reclaim all of North America. LOL!
