I cannot imagine what it must be like to have one of these devastating sinkholes open up in your backyard; nieghtborhood. Heartbreaking. I was curious about why sinkholes develop, so googled it, for those who are interested here is a link that explains it well: www.portal.state.pa.us... Sinkholes are a global phenomena and occur pretty much everywhere.
