alexandria, la. city streets collapsing

this was the scene on elliott street at olive street in alexandria, louisiana today.

according to a news report and video posted to the gannett/alexandria daily town talk "four people were taken to a local hospital today after a chevrolet minivan hit a sinkhole..."

it appears that those alexandria levee sand boils that were all the rage a couple of years ago are on the move.
