Best Woman for the Job
Florida isn't the only state where sinkholes have been in the news. Right here in Louisiana, in a parish adjacent to mine, more than three hundred residents of Bayou Corne have been displaced from their homes by a sinkhole that developed last summer and continues to get worse. It's been speculated that this enormous sinkhole was caused by the collapse of an underground salt dome. This video, posted by a Bayou Corne resident, explains it clearly:
In today's Baton Rouge newspaper, The Advocate, it was reported that Erin Brockovich has traveled to this area, has met with the displaced residents, and will assist them in taking their case to court.
