Underwater Sinkhole Swallows Tall Trees in Terrifying Footage

Mother Nature has a good number of ways to get back at us humans for messing with her. One is this underwater sinkhole that formed in a bayou and swallowed up to 100-foot trees in its wake.

After salt mines collapsed near Bayou Corne in Louisiana, a massive underwater sinkhole appeared and demonstrated its destructive force.

The terrifying phenomenon swallowed up 40-foot tall Cypress trees and did an estimated US$12 million worth of damage to the surrounding area.

What started as a 325-foot wide sinkhole reaching hundreds of feet deep, it has increased to 25 acres in size and still expanding, leaving nearby residents in constant distress of the growing threat.
