No one was hurt, but two workers who went to the bus driver’s rescue fell into the sinkhole in water that was over their heads, said Patty Troublefield, property manager of Villa Del Mar apartments on Los Arbolitos Boulevard near Fredericks Avenue. “One fell in and then the other ran to help him and he fell in,” said Troublefield, who arrived for work around 7 a.m., right after the North County Transit District bus dropped into the sinkhole in front of her apartment complex. “He went in and went all the way down, then came up,” Troublefield said. The two workers managed to pull themselves out as police and other city workers ran to their aid, Troublefield said.
That area where Arizona Avenue curves into Walnut Avenue was closed to traffic for more than 10 hours on Christmas Eve after a waterline break caused a 25-feet deep sinkhole. The City of Yuma Utilities Department responded to the area at 6:30 a.m. to fix a sinkhole that was 60 feet long and 30 feet wide.
Donnalley told Village Council Wednesday night that the eastbound lane of State Street east of Hazel Street has been blocked off after the department discovered a sink hole beginning in the roadway. He said a camera will be run through the sanitary system on Friday in an attempt to determine the cause. Donnalley noted that there are no remnants of debris in the nearest manhole, nor are other manholes backed up, indicating that the main line has not collapsed.
What is the nexus between FEMA activity in the Beaumont, TX port (which is the nearest port to the petrol sinkhole at Byou Corne, LA), fireballs over nearby Houston, TX (just to the West of Byou Corne along the Gulf), and power line poles in counties to the north and south of Houston bursting into flames? It is certainly not the fog! If the moisture in fog could cause an arc on pole tops, what happens in Texas during the rain? Electric lines can cause an arc, and heat from meteors can likewise spark an explosion, but what would the fuel be? The collapsing and leaking salt dome cavern near Byou Corne is doing more than putting an oil slick on the surface of the sinkhole. The petrol on the surface is vaporizing into the air, and being blown about by the winds, and though oil and water do not mix, oil can settle on the surface of water and this includes the surface of water droplets in the air, i.e. fog! Why are the meteor showers in the area turning into fireballs, appearing aflame in the skies? The winds are blowing fuel, and there are explosions in abundance! Is FEMA concerned about a possible conflagration at Byou Corne, with a sudden need to evacuate residents in the area? It is more than just that sinkhole, as numerous salt dome caverns used to store petrol products are in use in the region.

I just don't think sink holes are on the same scale as volcanoes and earthquakes, sorry OPedit on 27-12-2012 by iamhobo because: (no reason given)edit on 12/28/2012 by kosmicjack because: removed quoted OT content and other OT content
We feel that Texas Brine and government officials haven't released all information in regards to these possible dangers, which include dangerous radiation levels which are said to be 15 times higher than state-recognized safe levels. Other dangers to the public include dangerous levels of oil and methane gas releases, risk of a catastrophic explosion, continuous tremors and the possibility of an ever growing sinkhole. It’s unclear just what exactly Texas Brine did or didn’t bury at the sinkhole. Neither company nor state regulators have been clear about what’s been taking place at the site for years. They haven’t been honest we demand an immediate resolution.

These recent phenomenas of sinkholes has got me thinking. I know that sinkholes occur from time to time...but this recent escalation has got me pondering...
Earthquakes have picked up
Volcanoes are extremely active
and now massive sinkholes are appearing out of the blue at an alarming rate...
I think that I may have stumbled on to a link that would explain all of these things...
Solar Flares...heating up the earths core, melting the icecaps, forcing underground water pressure and wreaking havoc on the earth...
Man cannot possibly be the blame alone...global warming is due to Solar flares...but I guess blaming it on man is more profitable.
Anyway...that's my theory. I'm sure it will be picked apart like a Christmas goose.
