The first two pages are the most informative. The rest of the posts are pretty much all trash.

I'm no geologist, but south of St. Louis where I live is full of sinkholes. It is due (here) to karst topography. The limestone underground has been "dissolved"by water and the "roof" (ground) falls in. Other rock types do this too, not just limestone.

I don't know if anyone as already post this ...

Every time I watch images from these holes ..the movie War of the Worlds comes to my mind.

These last images are very important.You can clearly see a clean cut. The Top building is cut because of rotation and the top left one isn't , the reason, it was deep in the ground .. it was just touching it.

Watch the video and tell me it doesn't explain alot.

The best way to hide the truth is in plain sight.
If you talk about it ... you have been watching to many movies. Maybe I did ....

It's in French ... but the images Worth Exactly One Thousand Words.

Kinda reminded me of war of the worlds the newer one, with the storm and all.

I have checked a few pictures of sinkholes when I saw this and many seem pretty similar, maybe not the scale but similar.

The hole may seem bottomless with blackness and all but I zoomed in a bit and it seems like a black liquid. I'm no expert by any stretch at analyzing photos.

I know the picture isn't that high of quality/resolution, but is there someone that can zoom in on the blackness and enhance it so we may be able to get an idea what it could be?

What would be a sign that it goes deeper into the depths?

That's a sinkhole,the rainwater from the storm washed away material beneath,and the earth above collapsed into the void which was left,or an underground river emptied too completely leaving the roof of the cave or channel unsupported.

That is one big damned hole,where did all of the earth go from above the area that washed out?.

I look forward to seeing someone base jump into it,sounds fun!.

Bring back pics and vids.

1. Are those ancient lava tubes or volcanic vents or something from like two billion years ago?

2. Maybe they are seams of salt laden material or other easily corroded materials like limestone / sandstone seams that eroded from water seepage from an underground river at the bottom of those holes?

3. Maybe they are the hidden covered-up-long-ago entrances to the reptilian underworld, or their air conditioning vents which must be opened once every 10000 years to freshen up the air down there...

I'm going with number 1 myself...

I'd love to think there was something more to these things than just being a natural phenomenon. But if you go down I think all you'll find is everything that was in place that has fell to the bottom... Rubble!

As for the overhanging buildings making it look like it was created from the bottom and moved up over, well thats because it was. Its called gravity...

A large build up of salt in the earth + lots of water + gravity = A sink hole!

The story is pretty complete.

The hole is 21.52 meters in diameter and 31.25 meters deep.


Fernando Choc Caal witnessed as his brother Rigoberto Choc Caal disappeared into the sink hole that occured at 11th avenue and 6th street in zone 2.

Fernando said that they had gone out to find a payphone saturday night.

"We headed out at about 7 p.m. I was behind him because was walking very fast When he got to the corner he told me to hurry up. I heard a loud noise and looked towards Marti Street. When I looked back towards my brother, he was no longer there, there was just a lot of dust; I got closer and where Rigo had been there was a huge hole."


The storm is passed and the death toll is at 109 which is good compared to "Mitch" in 1998 which left 268 deaths and "Stan" in 2005 that left 669 dead but I believe that the damage done by this storm will be considerably higher.

At least it shows that people are no longer taking these types of storm lightly because I remember that people waited until the last minute to try to leave danger zones during the other 2 storms and by then it was to late because of damage to bridges so there was no way out. This resulted in a higher number of deaths.

It's real but real scary I say. The funny thing is that after looking at this sink "hole" and the others, it gets me thinking about Cremo and Hancock and others who comment and researched about the South American people able to move long distances under ground through large caverns.

Here is a video about the Mayan Underworld.

there are many parts to it, i will post the first one.

This is not unknown to that part of the world and the ancient people did use them. When they would set up a civilization, most of these places were near oceans or great rivers but thanks to these sink holes they were able to use it as a life source.

Something has been awoken? O_O

This is truly surreal it actually reminds me of the first Aliens vs Predator.. when the predator fires the laser from space to bore a hole into the hunting ground.

In the part of the picture i've circled Notice how the slabs over hang the hole. This leads me to the conclusion that this hole was created from bottom-up not top-down.

Perhaps theres an underground river system that got flooded due to the storm. Which led to the collapse.


I wanted to post this again for newcomers and those who believe this hole was created from above.

Looks deeper than that...



Ya, I've seen quite a few of these "man eater" sink holes....but this one is top 3 for sure

Yeah that makes sense. The walls of that hole look like it is soft earth or limestone. Question is where did it all go?? I mean that's a crap load of material it's not exactly a pot hole. Regardless how it was created I think it would be interesting too see where it leads. Lmao I want to see how they plan on filling that thing in.

Well those are the numbers given by the gov. but seeing that it has been raining almost non-stop for about a week and it has just let up today I'm sure no one has really gone in an taken a real measurment.

Probably just threw a rope with a rock tied to the end of it in and guesstimated the best they could.

The one from 2007 was over 100 meters deep.
