Louisiana Sinkhole Widens - Below Sinkhole: 500 billion cubic feet of gas, 200 million gallons of oil estimated

BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) - Officials reported another large section of land was swallowed up by the giant sinkhole in southeast Louisiana.

 According to the Assumption Parish Police Jury, a chunk of land about 30 feet by 50 feet fell in on the southeast side of the sinkhole in Bayou Corne. That's about the size of a small three bedroom house.

Many trees and even part of the road collapsed into the massive "slurry."

Officials said it happened near the area where crews with Texas Brine are working.

They added the road that was damaged was built to park excavators while cleanup activities are taking place.

The police jury noted this area has never sloughed in before, as opposed to other areas that have sank into the hole.

Crews are continuing to run tests in the cavern of the abandoned salt dome below the sinkhole.
Officials said a bubbling spot was noticed in Pierre Part and DEQ will take samples to determine if it is natural gas (swamp gas).

OEP monitored the area and detected no harmful risks. We're told there will be another community briefing Saturday, September 29th at 10:00 a.m. at the command post.
