WATCH: Massive Sinkhole Swallows Dozens of Large Trees in Seconds

The above video was posted on Youtube from Assumption Parish, Louisiana, and shows over a dozen large trees being swallowed by a massive sinkhole in just a few seconds.

The sinkhole, known as the Bayou Corne sinkhole, was created when an underground salt dome cavern operated by the Texas Brine Co. collapsed.

The sinkhole is estimated to be around 750 feet and forced hundreds of residents to evacuate.
