The Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness posted video on its blog, showing land being swallowed up by the sink hole, into the churning water.

This particular sink hole has required numerous updates on the agency’s blog.

It is believed that the sink hole is the aftermath of a collapsed salt dome.  Earlier this month, the state of Louisiana sued Texas Brine LLC, a developer that is accused of causing the situation.

Homeowners in the area have been told that their property is not in any immediate danger.
