BAYOU CORNE, LA (NBC33) — Texas Brine officials say crews began removing debris from on top of the sinkhole this morning. They say once the debris is gone they can use another machine to soak up oil and other liquids left on top the hole.
The company says clean efforts stopped for a while before today, because of safety concerns.
Assumption Parish officials are asking folks to be aware that the diesel smell could temporarily get worse while crews clean up and move things around.
