40 foot deep, 18 inch wide hole in New Jersey


After suspecting at first that a sinkhole might be opening up in the Beneficial Bank parking lot on Hurffville Road, emergency responders were soon laughing about the random appearance of a 40-foot-deep hole that was only about 18 inches across and showed no signs of opening up any further. According to Robert Burkhardt, the fire marshal for the Deptford Township Fire Department, the hole looks to have been some sort of underground drain or well that had been paved over by the original property owner. Burkhardt said that the cause of the hole opening at this time is probably “just stress from over the years.”


Manitowoc, WI man falls into 10 foot deep sinkhole


A female caller stated she tried reaching the man with a ladder but was unable to do so, the dispatcher said. When responders arrived, the man was lying on his back in a 10-foot deep hole, but was conscious. The hole, approximately 3-feet in diameter, was not there this morning according to Strauss' wife, Bonnie. "He seems to be OK; they're checking him over to see if he's OK," she said. Officials said extra equipment will be needed to extract the man because of the soft, wet ground, according to the scanner.

According to Chichkov, the sinkhole not only demolished the three buildings, but also caused ruptures in electricity and gas utility lines. By the afternoon, gas utilities and power had been restored. The sinkhole remains cordoned off by emergency services. The reasons behind the accident have not been made public so far. “There is a version that the sinkhole was caused by subterranean waters, which rose due to snow melting,” the regional head wrote on his blog.

Giant Sinkhole A Mystery - Tyler Texas

There was one that developed in Tyler City Proper in 2011, and there could be another that they were trying to fix. Link to that story

Seems to be an uptick in sinkholes, and "old ones" getting bigger.

This is NOT a sinkhole per se...but because of the proximity to the major US city of Cleveland, OH, (and the possible financial implications for salt removal this coming winter in the MidAtlantic region) I thought the "Cargill Salt Mine" article deserved its own thread. I am linking here, on the official "sinkhole" thread for shared geological interest:

I feel for the OP, but it seems that this thread has slowed down of late, notwithstanding the disastrous sinkhole at the resort in Florida recently...

The slowness I hope is because there hasn't been any other new ones developing...and not because ppl are just not reporting them any more.

Since sinkholes are all over the world these days, I was thinking that they are probably on the ocean floor as well.... I suspect that we won't know about those until it's way too late. Anyways, even if we did, what can we do about them? Just pray that they are not too deep.

Can somebody say "Great Lakes"? i.e. Lakes: Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario

Referencing my post about speculation of sinkholes, I found an interesting old vid- 2007 of a sinkhole in a lake in Japan...

Just made the connection today of my friend's dad who died on his land... a long time ago, like 15yrs ago. The story is that he was on his backhoe and suddenly the ground gave way below him... "Must have been a sinkhole!".

One more.. I don't know what the h.ll this is... weird...

OK, so now we have sinkholes in bodies of water, as shown in the above video(s)...

Here is one explanation of how sinkholes form:

Does this explain a sinkhole forming at the bottom of a lake? Dunno... maybe it's just me... but the theory sounds dubious.

Why are so many sinkholes almost perfectly round? At least that is how they start out. Just mere coincidence? The fact that a lot are perfectly round tells me, in my small mind, that underground tributaries are not causing these... Otherwise, I would suspect that the sinkholes would follow a linear, tributary/river like shape. But what do I know?... just a layman speaking.

To take this further... If the tributary theory was right, again: in my small mind, I would suspect that most sinkholes would start out as an oval shape, allowing for erosion where the tributary funneled the water into the pocket, and at the other end... not necessarily at the opposite end, and making a higher water pressure area where the water continues its flow into the tributary once again. There would be an uneven amount of erosion there where the water was exiting said pocket.

The one in the video looks kinda 'ovaly'.. so that would fit the picture... This seemingly is the exception.

But a perfect circle sinkhole does not fit this line of thinking at all. So in other words, I don't know what they are talking about.

If there is large amounts of rain fall and flooding in an area that has aquifers and streams underground you'll get sink holes. The volume of water increases in those underground streams which washes away even more material and you have unstable land.

Thank for the post .... What about the fact that they are almost perfectly round so many times? That is what I was driving at... Something is making these, and because of the round shape, indicates that they are not Normal erosion-based holes.

another example

I don't know maybe there is more to it, but not all sink holes are round. As like tectonic plates collide together they create entire canyons that sink inward and they also create mountains pushing upward. A lot of times this happens in the ocean water drops in and shifts the ocean so much it creates a massive tidal wave.

Hey just discovering this thread while reading another.

I am posting before reading simply because it is so exciting that a member took time to create this accounting of one of the most mysterious (at this point) events happening more frequently with little to no coverage.

Just saw a couple days ago how a young Vet who did tours over seas came home recently and went hunting and died falling into a sink hole.

I will try and find a link:



Mo. hunter dies after falling into sinkhole
Posted: Sep 17, 2013 1:00 PM CST Updated: Sep 17, 2013 2:04 PM CST

BUCKHORN, Mo. (AP) - Pulaski County authorities say a south-central Missouri hunter died after he fell into a sinkhole while looking for a deer he believed he shot.

Sheriff Ron Long says the hunter fell into the hole, which was about 70 feet deep, on Monday evening near Buckhorn. He told his wife earlier that he was going to track a deer he hit while bow-hunting. She called authorities when he didn't return home.

Emergency personnel found his body about 3 a.m. Tuesday. Investigators believe the sinkhole opened up during heavy rains last month but the hunter didn't see it in the dark because it was behind foliage.

Pulaski County Assistant Coroner Michael McCart ruled the death accidental.

Thing is, I have been alive and aware for many years. I have always been observant and able to remember senseless information. I have lived all over the world, I have seen weather of all kinds. I have never seen so many sink holes springing up like we have witnessed in the past few years.

Is there a cover up? IMHO Yes. If we could to a 3d image of the planet, then construct a timeline for the major sink holes first then the lesser next, we may have a better picture of where to expect the next through the connecting lines. If nothing else it may give us an indication of changes never before considered. I mean, some agency somewhere , some scientific field is either studying this phenomena or creating it.

How far will it go? I guess we can just add it to all the other Doomsday scenarios.

Great post. I think you're right. Someone knows something somewhere and they are most likely studying the phenomenon.

I heard about that hunter to. Saw it on the news. That's pretty scary stuff that these sinkholes are just appearing where you'd least expect them.

I cantt help but think about how it could affect the changes in the earths landmass eventually. Is this how continents eventually divide? And if so what does that say for the US, China who seem to have more than anyone else? Well actually all of the Americas. Can you do a graph of the areas where they have been most prominent? I would like to see a visual of the sink holes and how they connect. This really is a water world, no matter how far you dig you will always reach water. It is just weird that there is so little public access to any real data. And what about massive earthquakes? Would something like New Madras cause the great new divide with massive flooding from the great lakes to the Gulf?

I posted a thread about this, thought I would bring it here also.

We are on a huge cave system here in Kentucky. I hope it is just an isolated incident and doesn't grow.

I wonder if these sinkholes are as a result of some energy or laser beam testing. I get the feeling they may be the result of some kind of harmonic resonation like at a focal point where two or more waves or beams cross and create interference patterns.

Is there a way to plot these and draw lines between them or plot the time of the formation of sinkholes with earthquake time or solar flares or loud booming noises or some other environmental anomalies?

The Greatest Graph Never Made!

It would be nice to have one that could plot all the sinkholes and boom reports on the same graph along with all of these small earthquakes. I'm referring to the United States anyways.

I'm getting a scent in the air that Bayou Corne is about to become a monster. If, you don't think of it that way now. I caught a brief news clip that states there is a new bubbling site. The story is sketchy and I'm still looking in to it. I checked the seismographs on the helicorder page and there's no seismic activity. But this doesn't mean anything exactly because gas can move without recording anything. If there is a new gas leak and if erosion were to happen before a collapse, then you'd get some squiggly lines showing the disturbance. The new bubble could be a sign of expansion.

I've been trying to locate the bubbling site on Google Maps. According to the Police blog, it's a 1/4 mile north of Gator Corner.
Gator Corner seems to be at the intersection of highway 70 and 69. If you go north from there, you're about 3/4 of a mile away from the actual sinkhole. I am not saying that the true size of the salt dome is that big. I haven't checked. Gas can migrate laterally for quite a distance. Whatever the case, it shows that this beast is hard to contain. Grab onto some mercury if you can and squeeze your hand into a fist.

Also, given that is not near the actual sinkhole, I don't think there's a nearby seismic station. I will have a look.

I'm sure somebody has posted this site, but it has all the maps of bubble sites and seismic stations.

If you look, you'll find the other bubbles sites are to the south. This newest one doesn't even show on the map. So, not only is it new, it's it a different location altogether. And, there's no station to show anything small on the seismic scale.

From the video of the bubbles, I can't make out any land marks to compare. However, there are markers of some sort on steel rods in the water and extending along a line. I do not know what these represent. It could be marked by the company earlier. And it could just be marking to show property, since property can be underwater and people don't want trespassers, even in boats or rafts or those wading fishermen. I wish I had a precise location. I don't think it's in the river. It could be that swampy area near the pipe-works. Who knows?
