Bayou Corne, La. - Natural gas has been found under the slabs of two homes near a Bayou Corne sinkhole.

Assumption Parish officials say contractors found gas under slabs on Sauce Piquante Lane. That's north of Highway 70.

Tests should show in the next few days if the gas is related to the area's sinkhole. The gas could be naturally-occurring swamp gas.

The gas is not leaking into homes.  For more information on the Bayou Corne situation, go online to http://assumptionla.wordpress.com.
