Sinkhole swallows trees

Posted: Updated:

A sinkhole in Louisiana swallowed trees in a matter of seconds.

Officials in Assumption Parish, southeast of Lafayette, released the video of the bayou sinkhole.

It now covers about 24 acres.

About 350 people in a nearby town were evacuated.

A similar incident happened in the same area a year ago.
