BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -

Crews are scheduled to begin work to develop a three-dimensional image of the massive sinkhole in southeast Louisiana.

Workers will use a "thumper truck" to send vibrations underground.

They will then take the data from this technique and other technology to create a 3D picture of the sinkhole and nearby salt cavern.

Louisiana officials authorized the process last week in place of drilling more observation wells.

    The National Hurricane Center continues to highlight an area in Gulf of Mexico for potential tropical development over the next five days. This area to watch is currently located south of the Yucatan Peninsula and strong wind shear will keep this area at a 0% chance of development over the next couple of days before increasing late-week and weekend as it pushes into the Gulf of Mexico.
