"The sides of the sinkhole that swallowed up part of the Southeast County Landfill in Lithia four months ago collapsed last night."

"It’s not unusual for this to happen, he said, and it could happen again." .......seems unusual to me

Part of this landfill keeps collapsing, the more they try and plug it up???

it looks like we're screwin up more of mama earth.

Seems this would be ideal for a landfill. Most cities are looking for more space for landfills and this sinkhole is eating the garbage. Sounds like a win-win. They should quit trying to stop it up and get a waiver to use it.

What better for a Land Fill company than a bottomless pit? Great news for Florida's Waste managment companies.

HAHA. But seriously the whole underneath might be the size of a lake. This could get alot bigger.

Whats with these sinkholes?
It must be that the soil below is liquefying and running off somehow or ???
I mean how does a hole suddenly spear meters and meters deep overnight?
The subsurface erosion must be an ongoing process that takes some time to get to the sinking stage.
Couldnt there be some kind of electronic tester to find these things ?
The subsurface soil of the world must be going through some changes too to allow these things to occur in diverse places like they have been
Or is it some kind of underground vibrational frequency that liquefys the soil allowing it to flow out of the site and down into the cracks in the earth?

Could be one of many things Stirling.

*Limestone errosion (Most comin) basically water erodes limestone very quickly which is how 80% of the worlds caves are formed.
*Underground River taking the soil away,
*Airpocket that after thousands of years has lost its stability due to recent environmental factors be it Bulldozing, Earthquakes, Drilling even and espeacially drifting of the techtonic plates
*Oil being taken out of the ground leaving and empty hole
*An old lava tunnel colapsing kilometers underground

Pritty much anything can cause this.

Oh and let us not forget ALIENS... they could have done it too

according to this weatherunderground Elevation

Lithia is at 108ft elevation, ground water is probably taking the trash away...

So according to officials it's now 10 ft deeper. I bet no one ever sets out to become a sinkhole officianato. There can't be a big demand for 'em. Seven years of college, to have someone call you a sink hole official ? Some peoples luck huh ?
