ASSUMPTION PARISH, Louisiana (WTVR) — Some extreme video has surfaced of a sinkhole swallowing up part of a swamp in Louisiana.

Video shows the sinkhole swallowed a group of trees in Bayou Corne.

The sinkhole, which first appeared in the Assumption Parish waterway last year, prompted a mandatory evacuation for nearby residents.

State and federal agencies have been monitoring the sinkhole since then.
