ASSUMPTION PARISH, LA – Cameras were rolling as a sinkhole in Louisiana’s bayou country swallowed up a group of trees.

The water churns as the unseen hole opens up on the bayou floor.

The sinkhole actually appeared in this assumption parish waterway last year prompting a mandatory evacuation.

Local emergency worker says that the sinkhole is still active and continues to grow; but no homes are in danger — for now anyway.

An evacuation route is being planned just in case.

Better safe than sorry; Louisiana knows all too well the tricks Mother Nature has up her sleeve.
