Prelude to Disaster?

The outbreak of sinkholes has struck fear in Chinese people. Though reports in official media always quote “experts” that conclude such holes are not warning signs of another major earthquake, people have little trust in such comments.

Online bloggers posted footage of similar alleged expert reassurances aired on local TV news channels shortly before the Sichuan earthquake. They are criticizing such assertions as no more than authorities’ tricks to maintain so-called social stability.

“What I hate most of the ‘experts’ on TV who confidently promise everything is OK,” wrote one blogger. “They’re saying this only because the government told them to.”

Many other bloggers joked that when the media start to refute earthquake rumors, it is time to pack up and leave because an earthquake is surely around the corner.

Having little trust in the regime's official reports, Chinese are now increasingly wary of abnormalities such as the appearance of large herds of toads or snakes, or clouds of unusual colors or shapes, and pay serious attention to any disaster warnings on blog sites.

Sinking government credibility and all too fresh memories of a series of recent disasters are causing Chinese society to become easily agitated. This February, the mere rumor of an earthquake scared tens of thousands of citizens in Taiyuan City in Shanxi Province out of their homes and into the streets to spend the night.

A Sinkhole eats a man


Submitted by jinzai007 on March 02nd, 2013
A Sinkhole suddenly eats a man in Florida. This happened when Jeff Bush,35 was going to sleep in his bedroom then. sinkhole suddenly eats his bed.
The whole household heard a noisy thing that urges them to see what happened until they saw the hole. Jeff's brother immediately jumped into the hole in searching for his brother but he failed.



This one ate a family in Guatamala...


This one ate a house...

( Algerina Perna, Baltimore Sun / August 29, 2012 )
The sink hole on Monument street (near the 700 block of Montford Ave.) increased in size today as a result of heavy rains.

St. Jude Quebec where a sink hole 1 km by .5 km destroyed a home - It’s hard to imagine but the ground sank beneath the home of Richard Préfontaine, Lyne Charbonneau and their daughters, Anaïs and Amélie at 9:30 pm on Monday night wiping out their family.

Hi Z,

Why do these "Sinkholes" appear to be ROUND ?

Instead of like long fissures ?

Likely due to the way the ground collapses sort of like a dome collapsing. The material will fall away until a stable dome or arch will support the ground naturally. In hard rock mining typically you can feel if the ground is shifting. Most of those sinkholes look like they are in sedimentary rock which is very unstable and would require an immense backfill to stabilize the area.

Ummm  maybe they are Portals to Inner Earth?   :o








Not always round but likely due to the fact the cause is deeper down and stuff funnels into the hole





BWAHAHAHA Poetic Justice

"Journey to the Center of the Earth"



Sinkhole at IMC Agrico Gypsum Stack, June 15, 1994

Quote
On June 15, 1994 " a 15-story-deep sinkhole opened up in an 80 million-ton pile of phosphogypsum waste -- known as a gypsum stack -- at IMC-Agrico's New Wales plant. The hole could be as big as 2 million cubic feet, enough to swallow 400 railroad boxcars. Local wags call it Disney World's newest attraction -- "Journey to the Center of the Earth" -- but there's nothing amusing about it. The cave-in dumped 4 million to 6 million cubic feet of toxic and radioactive gypsum and waste water into the Floridan aquifer, which provides 90 percent of the state's drinking water. The company has voluntarily spent $ 6.8 million to plug the sinkhole and control the spread of contaminants in the ground water." - US News & World Report, June 12, 1995
