While the Guatemalans are wondering if the giant sinkhole formed on June 1 in their capital city is an isolated case, on the other side of the globe, the Chinese have discovered at least eight sinkholes that suddenly formed in the past two weeks across their country, and many more have appeared during the past two months.
The latest known sinkhole formed at 12:25 a.m. Beijing time on June 4, in the middle of a freeway in Zhejiang Province on the nation’s eastern coast. The sinkhole measured 20 feet deep and 27 feet wide.

It gives me the creeps in that it is reminiscent of the film 2012 when the ground starts to cave and there were little warning signs before that something was amiss.
However, I'm more inclined to think this is something that happens everywhere throughout history and we only see 'more' due to the growth of media and the internet. So it appears to be more of a problem that it really is.
Either way, it is interesting to say the least. Thanks for sharing.

IS it soemthing to worry about? Is it in reality a rise in occurance, or just hyped media attention as the above poster suggested?
Until someone asks those questions and seriously investigates it, we won't know. I for one am paying more attention to these types of things in the news. So long as you look at it scientifically I see no harm in doing so.

These thing definately need checking out ... a lot of things on the planet that are relatively common seem to be coming 'more' frequent ... or bigger ... or stronger.
