Morgan City's been working on getting their $3 million visitor's center since way before Hurricane Katrina.  And this week, about one month before it was finally scheduled for completion, it SANK five feet into the ground.  What the heck happened?

According to, a painter noticed a large crack in the sheet rock and figured something probably wasn't right.  Everyone was ordered out of the building, and as the afternoon went on, the building just kept sliding into the swamp.

"We had a catastrophic failure," said Carrie Stansbury, executive director of Cajun Coast Visitor's & Convention Bureau." --

The contractor overseeing the project is Laplace-based Aegis Construction Inc. with Washer Hill Lipscomb Cabanis Architects of Baton Rouge designing the project.  Wanna guess who's getting sued?
