Sinkhole Tremors Prevent Work


An increase in tremors at the 15-acre sinkhole in Assumption Parish has prevented work since Wednesday.

Parish emergency director John Boudreaux says the tremors aren't strong enough to indicate another edge collapse, and they sometimes drop from the current level.

The tremors occur normally as the sinkhole finds its final shape and size. Friday marked the 9th month that 350-residents of Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou have been under an evacuation order.
