(KGO) -- An official in the small town of Assumption Parish, Louisiana had his camera rolling when a sinkhole started swallowing up trees right before his eyes.
The sinkhole has been growing for about a year now, but really kicked into high gear Wednesday.
It only takes about 20 seconds for those trees to completely disappear.
The sinkhole was caused by an underground salt dome that started collapsing last August. It's estimated to be almost 25 acres in size.
