Sinkhole was 400 sq ft, now 9 acres and growing.

"The sinkhole, approximately 400 square feet when discovered on August 3, is now 9 acres large and continues to expand. It is expected to continue growing up to the size of 30 football fields." http://www.examiner.com/article/erin-brockovich-s-la-sinkhol...

Seeing as this problem has been going on for SEVEN MONTHS, and given how SERIOUS it is - with the salt dome that is sinking measuring 1 MILE X 3 MILES, a circumstance causing TOXIC, VOLATILE gases to be released, in addition to potential GROUND INSTABILITY, with nearby residents having been under an EVACUATION ORDER, but with residents outside the evacuation zone experiencing HEALTH ISSUES*), it's nice that the LA governor has carved out time from his busy schedule (it's a one-hour trip) to see the DISASTER SITE for himself.
