Giant Sinkhole in Louisiana


The power of a Louisiana sinkhole nearly 24 acres in size was captured on camera Wednesday when the sinkhole swallowed up trees and land in just seconds.
The video was captured by officials with the Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness and posted on the parish's blog. The sinkhole sits in the middle of a heavily wooded space in Assumption Parish, which is about 50 miles south of Baton Rouge.

In the middle of a woody swamp 50 miles from civilization, Mother Nature strikes with an event that lasts about 30 seconds.... Someone is ready with a camera...

What are the odds?

As I understand this sinkhole has been growin for quite some time so its not crazy to think people are there trying to capture it.

Personally I'd make sure I kept a safe distance at all times.
