Bayou Corne SInkhole 54.jpg

August 3, 2013, Bayou Corne, Louisiana , Protest sign on a resident's lawn raising issue with the sinkhole that was created when a salt cavern being mined by Texas Brine Co. failed.
Over the coarse of the year the sinkhole has grown from 3 acres to 24 acres. The residents of Bayou Corne have been under a mandatory evacuation for a year becuase the area has gas pressure under the community.
