This is really starting to spook me out. While my husband I were discussing it, he mentioned it's really no big deal and that sinkholes have occurred since time immemorial. And I do agree that he is correct.

But it still very creepy and reminds me of the film 2012 when the earth's crust begins to give way.

Sinkholes - A Sign of the Times?


Bizarre reports of gaping holes in the ground continue to come in from all over the place – in cities, on the open roads, in the countryside. Many of the ‘sinkholes’ you’ll see below have been individually explained away as happening due to heavy rainfall during storms, old leftover constructions from mining and subsidence caused by some nearby disturbance – either natural or man-made. The cause of others, however, remain mysterious. I think the important thing to consider is why so many of these sinkholes are appearing at once.


There are several images on that page beginning in 2006 and occurring as early as a couple of days ago.

Living in Florida where these are common kind of freaks me out. I don't like unexpected phenomena like this nor do I care for tornadoes. You don't have time to prepare like a hurricane. I have been pretty close to sink holes and honestly 2012 didn't help! I have had thoughts of something that big opening up and swallowing up my condo!

This one sink hole was really interesting and deep

That one is just wow!! It swallowed an entire corner!

Yeah, that is one of the one featured in the article. Definitely the eeriest one, IMHO. Apparently it swallowed a 3 story building when it collapsed.

I've increasingly noticed a lot of these as well..

Can't say this is directly related, but remember the Michigan crack that happened a little while back, that is supposedly widening?

Looks like it was created in March.

I'd love to see all of the big sinkholes on put on a map somewhere. We might could infer something from that. I think we can leave the fiddler crab sinkhole off it though (sorry,
).

Here's one for Florida www.cnnfoundationtech.com... but I want to see one, for the world. I'm going to look for a GE overlay on this.

Scary indeed !

Last month, sinkholes made the headlines here in Quebec. A field full of holes near Quebec city. Heavy rainfall is the common answer given by authorities but my paranoia scale jumps up a few notches every time just the same...

Interesting times we are living in !

This is definitley a scary prospect, driving along and then suddenly vanishing down into the depths of the earth !!!


www.swfwmd.state.fl.us...

This link suggests how they are formed and got me thinking ....... The process of Fracking the ground to extract oil or gas must surely dis-lodge the equilibrium under the ground..... the process need not be immeadiately next to the sinkhole but surely be a potential cause by shifting the earth ever so slightly..

Thanks for bringing that up. I'm a bit ignorant on it but from what I understand (or at least from what I read) is that the fracking/drilling is disturbing the earth's crust. As in, the oil serves as 'earth's lubricant' and removing it in the amounts it is removed causes all sorts of issues like sink holes and earthquakes.

I am not sure if that is true- that is just how I understand it.

It's just kind of creepy isn't it? That super-deep looking one probably cost a lot of people their underwear.

FYI (and I don't want to get your thread off track)... Fracking extracts natural gas, not oil, by injecting gobs of yucky chemicals into the earth to extract it thereby contaminating the water table.

Very freaky.

Is it just me or do they seem to appear more often underneath or close to concrete/asphalt?

Dammit, I wish I took a pic, but last week when en route home a street was blocked off and I had to go around the next block. Upon reaching the other side I noticed that there was a big hole in the street (roughly 6 feet in diameter).
The police were the only ones on hand. I asked what had happened and he laughed and said, "hell just opened", he went on to say that the street just opened and fell in. They were waiting for the county DPW trucks to arrive and see what they could determine.

I am going to see if any local posts were made here, if so I will post em.
