Bayou Corne, La (NBC33) — Assumption Parish emergency officials have released a new picture today, showing the latest changes to the size of the sinkhole.
The area outlined in red is where a 20’ x 80’ chunk collapsed in the hole. They say it happened on the southeast side of the sinkhole, which is the side furthest away from the closest homes.
Officials tell NBC33 that clean up on top of the sinkhole has slowed since the sinkhole grew yesterday.
