Trees go under water - level 3
An underwater sinkhole has devoured a small grove of trees in a Louisiana swamp. Emergency workers were filming on the scene when the activity began.
As the water swirled, the trees began to slip below the surface until they were completely consumed. The sinkhole is believed to have been created when an underground salt dome cavern collapsed earlier in the month. The hole is estimated to be 25 acres wide and growing. Local residents have been asked to evacuate.
Difficult words: devour (consume), grove (group), swamp (area where water stops), swirl (move in a twisting way), cavern (cave), collapse (fall down).
