BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -
More seismic activity and a burp was reported by the Assumption Parish Police Jury Thursday night.
The Police Jury blog reported just after 11 p.m. that there was a burp in the giant sinkhole in Bayou Corne. They also reported seismic activity in and around the sinkhole has been active for the past few days.
Officials report that hydrocarbons are present in the sinkhole as a result of the burp that happened Thursday night.
A burp is when air and gas from deep in the sinkhole bubbles up. It can cause debris to float to the top and, in the past, has caused more trees to be swallowed into the slurry.
It's been almost a year since a massive sinkhole near Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou began causing problems. Bubbling in the bayou led to the sinkhole. About 350 people have been forced out of their homes since August.
It has been 10 months since hundreds living near the giant sinkhole were forced from their homes.
Bubbles were spotted in Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou in June 2012. Two months later, the ground opened up.
Most affected residents began receiving weekly checks from Texas-Brine in the amount of $875 per week.
Nine months after the sinkhole first appeared in Bayou Corne, Texas Brine began making offers to buy out the residents living there.
