Assumption sinkhole continues collapsing

As of mid-February, the Bayou Corne sinkhole had swallowed nine acres. Scientists say the worst-case scenario is it could swallow 40 acres.

BAYOU CORNE — The Assumption Parish sinkhole is a lot like a living, breathing thing. More than 200 days after it mysteriously started swallowing up the swamp, hundreds of residents are still under a mandatory evacuation order.
Bayou Corne has always been a peaceful place. Spanish moss dangles from the trees, and inlets that lead to Grand Bayou are intertwined with the streets like a braid.
Most of the homes are situated with a bit of the bayou in their backyards, and that's exactly why most residents called the area home.
“We could drop the boat right there to go fishing. It was just like a paradise,” said former Bayou Corne resident Jamie Weber.
Weber decided to move her family out last fall. A sign on her old home says “Evacuated: Thank you Texas Brine.”
She had no idea she was putting her mobile home on land on top of an underground salt dome. The Napoleon Salt Dome is full of caverns that have been mined to make brine, or salt water. Other caverns on the dome have been used to store hazardous, potentially explosive gasses, such as Butane.
Geophyisicists say the western side of one of the brine caverns is collapsing, filling in from deep in the Earth, causing the sinkhole at the surface to expand and contract.
“On Oct. 25, we moved out of our home when we finally found a rent house because they had put a vent well a hundred yards from my house,” Weber told a joint legislative committee at a hearing on the sinkhole at the State Capitol last week.
