BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -

According to officials, seismic activity called spasmodic bursts were reported from the site of the nine acre sinkhole Tuesday night in Bayou Corne.

Spasmodic bursts are many rapid-fire earthquakes. More than 90 mini earthquakes happened around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Some of the spasmodic bursts lasted a few minutes while others were longer. Tremors have been reported in that area as far back as last May.

This information was released about three hours before the news conference was over where Governor Bobby Jindal addressed the sinkhole.

In that meeting, Texas Brine says they will have appraisers on site Monday to assess properties affected by the sinkhole, and will begin offering buyouts of the properties. Governor Jindal says Texas-Brine will make this happen within weeks, not months.
