I live maybe 10 miles away from it. Guess I'm fricked.


lol straight line, my parents live 5-6 miles away.

Other than possibly draining the surrounding water (lake verret), it will not affect them.

And I promise the feds don't know any more than the companies being contracted out currently to get this thing figured out.

A well connected guy that lives down there that I spoke to said they have world class experts studying this thing and they can't exactly figure it out.

A few months ago, he said there wasn't much space left in hole and it would fill up by years end.

re: Video: Assumption Parish Sink Hole
if they were on a small boat by the trees that got engulfed, would it have sucked them down into the water also?
that is some scary shite regardless, made me very uneasy watching it. I hate water, so that definitely plays into things.

I went on a boat ride and saw the sinkhole up close. There's areas around the sinkhole that allow you to get pretty close to it.

Also, as of a few months ago, there were about 12 other spots in the bayou bubbling. It's supposedly safe.

So...did you see it up close, or just get pretty close to it?

Sinkhole remediation is a specialty of mine. The ones in LA bayous are scary.

I am not sure i would be standing there on land while that shite is happening. I would want to be in a boat for sure I hope they at least wear life jackets while that close. That is crazy what is going on there.

I havent been out there when trees have fallen in but I have been on the north berm when the water level dropped 2-3" almost instantly. Kind of nerve racking.

I got as close as I was allowed to get to it.

No bluffing, I have video of it.

I don't have my laptop with me.

I'm in broadcast journalism and did a news package on it a few months ago. That's on YouTube.
