Video: Watch as Louisiana sinkhole swallows trees

These incredible pictures from CNN show a sinkhole in Louisiana swallowing a grove of trees in real time!

The amazing footage was shot in Assumption Parish, LA, by city officials worried about the potential for harm in the area.

The collapse comes a little more than a year after an area around Bayou Corne dissolved into liquefied muck. The sinkhole, discovered Aug. 3, 2012, has grown to 24 acres, and 350 residents in the tiny community have no end in sight to their evacuation order because the hole continues to widen.
