NATURE AT ITS SCARIEST: Giant Sinkhole Swallows Trees -- VIDEO

Louisiana, U.S. -- We've got a sinking feeling that you're going to be stunned when you watch the video below depicting nature at its scariest.

The caught-on-camera moment with trees being devoured by a sinkhole as it keeps growing was captured in Assumption Parish, Louisiana, and posted online.

However, the local Office of Emergency Preparedness said that the sinkhole will not endanger any homes in the area.

There are a number of significant factors involved with this occurrence: the state of Louisiana earlier this month said it is suing Texas Brine LLC for the environmental damage and massive sinkhole that officials say was caused by the collapse of a salt dome cavern operated by the company.
