40 holes between five and eight metres wide appeared in Quebec City, Charlesbourg.
We have no reponses about what caused that. I thought it would be good to share this other mystery with you.
Experts will be on place soon. Maybe we have some liquefaction here. 40 affected residents had left their homes. I don't know if there are some reports like that in others parts of the world.
It's interesting for me.

Moisan said the field where the holes are appearing used to be the site of a sandpit, and he said experts will be on the site Friday to find out what's causing the sinkholes. Just over a year ago, a family of four died in Saint-Jude, Que. during a massive landslide.


seems pretty localized but we did get more earth quakes and the likes than I've ever seen.

Thanks for the post FnS

Sinkholes and landslides are common in Quebec.

This is not surprising to me as a Canadian.

FTA: "Moisan said the field where the holes are appearing used to be the site of a sandpit, and he said experts will be on the site Friday to find out what's causing the sinkholes."

mystery solved!

Sink holes usualy form when the soil has an abendance of soluable minerals in it. When the mineral deposists "melt" away, it leaves gaps and loose soil. So starting from the bottom up they crumble down and we get those.

You beat me to it

i just though
We have a big flooding situation similar to whats happening with the mississippi river in the USA
maybe some subterrain cave were filled up with water and reached to the sink hole place in quebec ?

i didnt calculate the distance from both location
but we never know .. i think its a very plausible scenario


massive flooding in the monteregie .. and now this
something is clearly happening
those 30 sink hole dont appear out of nowhere just like that

Interesting stuff that they would all appear at the same time, eh? Keep us posted on any further news? Much appreciated. S&F

Yes, it is strange they all appeared at roughly the same time. Could be some agency testing a new weapon, or could be due to an underground subsidence. Do the government have any secret underground bases there?

I would be interested to see an aerial view of all the sink holes and see if there was a pattern wich may indicate an underground river or something.

Anyone have a kite with a camera attached that could take pics of this area?

addition:
vor at godlikeproductions forum says this about them


THAT IS NOT A SINKHOLE!

It is a rotational slump on a steep hillside (downhill to the left on the aerial view. These usually form in waterlogged unconsolidated (relatively loose) soil. It rotates down at the upper end and builds up near the lower end, giving the appearance of a chute. A common event in wet places with deep soil, but not usually this big! Again, this is not a sinkhole.

It seems that this area has many such land problems.
The missing family of 4 that occurred last year 2010

You are near but did not hear of this? That makes me suspicious. Why if this happned in my county it would be front page news. Be careful. And I wonder where all the dirt goes? Down, was it something that came out?

These anomolies are very scary.

Well I don't watch TV or read local newspapers.


So that's why. Maybe if I call my mother she will have heard about it on the news.

No biggie, its been raining for months combined with a very small seismic activities.
and its not located in a densely populated area.

Officials says, they are 1 to 5 meters deep, so basicly, nothing worse than our roads.
