Think this may have something to do with the oil spill in the gulf?

There's sinkholes happening more inland and more central than you may think. Its hard to tell until it happens because wastewater can suddenly luiquify under a house then suddenly find a drain and the ground caves.
Some of these are huge and deep more than you can fathom. I saw this picture on another site, I didnt realize how many there are, doesnt save since when

Yeah hopefully something good does come out of it, but I fear nothing will be done because once they admit that there is a serious problem, it will leave them or the developers liable.
If I am not mistaken though, most of these sink holes happen in lower class areas. In Florida, probably former swamp land. See, Prior to a really nice development being started, they spend the money to survey the soil beneath that land to make damn sure that they don't face a lawsuit down the road from all the home owners. It's all about protecting their own ass. ~$heopleNation

Sinkholes don't discriminate. They are happening all over, not just Florida swamp land.
Here is sinkhole watch thread, a lot of posted sinkholes there.

Is there some more news on this?
It could be days before officials decide whether they will attempt to recover Jeff Bush's body, and they were still trying Saturday to determine the extent of the sinkhole network and what kind of work might be safe. As the sinkhole grows, it may pose further risk to the subdivision and its homes.
