*(Via CS Monitor) – A massive sinkhole in Louisiana tugged a fresh meal of swamp trees into its depths on Wednesday night, according to local media.
In a video from the Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness, the Bayou Corne’s tall trees slip into a sinkhole hidden beneath metallic-sheened swamp water, like pieces of spaghetti giving in to a pot’s boiling water. Afterward, the tree gone and the water jiggling to still, the video almost begs for a voiceover – something like: “You saw nothing. Nothing happened here.”
The sinkhole first bubbled and trembled last June, and then about two months later caved open to take in about 24 acres of land. Ever since, the giant swamp thing has occasionally sighed and heaved, expanding to pull down more above ground brush and trees and dirt. The latest video, though, in which 25 trees bid their adieu to sunlight, is the first footage of its machinations.
