BAYOU CORNE, LA
The massive sinkhole plaguing south Louisiana continues to grow, as it has "eaten" another large section of land.
The Assumption Parish Police Jury reported the latest slough in on its blog Tuesday evening.
Officials stated a 20 feet by 80 feet chunk located on the east side of the sinkhole collapsed.
It had been several weeks since the giant sinkhole had claimed more land.
About 500 square feet of earth was lost on Oct. 9.
The ground opened up on August 3, 2012 and residents were evacuated from their homes. The sinkhole, or slurry, is consuming land and trees.
