Bayou Corne, Louisiana
"That old sinkhole, she ain't what she used to be!" She's a big bigger. And uglier.
We grabbed the first day of decent visibility and flying weather to go check this out again, since the latest news was that an additional 5000-square-foot area had just caved in. There was little activity in the immediate vicinity of the sinkhole; most of the equipment, air boats, and manpower that used to be there have moved farther away. But there is quite a bit of work going on in the land surrounding it. We're going to let the photos and video speak for themselves today. Apologies for a video that mght make you feel airsick -- the air was quite turbulent with wind shear at the 1500-2000' level.
See all of the photos and video here!
