A Southeast Texas sink hole that opened in 2008 is now believed to be largely stable.

Tom Branch, the Liberty County emergency management director said Friday that the sinkhole seems stable.

In May 2008 the sinkhole began to open, prompting the closure of part of FM770.

The hole continued to grow until it reached 600 by 525 feet and is as deep as 150 feet.

Neighbors near the hole monitored its growth, and even with the announcement are expected to continue to monitor for any changes.
