US sinkhole swallows huge trees in seconds - the power of nature..

 Louisiana's Assumption Parish officials released some amazing video on Wednesday, showing a sinkhole swallowing several tall trees in a matter of seconds. The video is described as a "slough in" that happened around 7:15 p.m.. The collapse comes a little more than a year after an area around Bayou Corne, Louisiana, dissolved into liquefied muck. The sinkhole was first discovered Aug. 3, 2012, and has now grown to encompass 24 acres, according to The Times-Picayune on Thursday, Aug. 22.

That was a big one. We have one in the north which is an old goldmine and a house fell into it. There are a lot of these sinkholes around the world.
