11:00 a.m. Sinkhole Grows in Diameter

During cleanup activities this morning, an additional 50’ feet of property on the SW side of the site fell into the sinkhole. Two cleanup workers in a boat, which was tied to a tree in that area, were rescued via airboat and shortly thereafter, their boat sunk into the sinkhole. All workers have been accounted for and no injuries have been reported. At the present time, clean up operations at the site have been suspended.
