Assumption Parish emergency officials say the sinkhole swallowed more trees Monday.

They say worked stopped on top of the sinkhole after the slough in. They have not had any reports of increased tremors; however, they say the land is not stable.

Last week a slough in was caught on tape shocking residents.

Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness director, John Boudreaux, estimates the sinkhole has grown to around 29 acres. He says more studies are needed to get an exact size.
