I have lived in Va most of my life, and it has been said over the years that there are thousands of underground caverns that have not be discovered.
I know of a place up in the mountains, it's on my cousins land, way away from their house. A sink hole started opening up there, started as a little
hole your leg could fall into, to the size of a house.( we used to throw stuff in the hole and try to hear it land) They used to keep horses and cows,
and one day a couple horses and a cow went missing. Went up to "the hole" the hole had opened up and they had fallen in. That was years ago, since
they have had to build a fence around it, but the hole keeps getting bigger and swallowing the fence. It's no where near new construction or any
place they would have dug a whole to fill with junk. So I am pretty sure natural sink holes can occur anywhere that have nothing to do with man made
