Florida Sinkhole Destroys Two Homes

DUNEDIN, Fla. (WKRC) -- A sinkhole claims two homes near Tampa, Florida. The hole is about 100 feet wide and 50 feet deep. One family got out of their house just in time.

The sinkhole was only about 12 feet wide when firefighters first arrived on the scene.
It eventually grew big enough to swallow up a boat and the back porch of a house and then a bedroom and the pool of the house next door.

Michael Dupre says his frightened daughter woke him up shortly before 6 a.m. on Thursday. At first they thought someone was breaking in, but it wasn't a burglar it was parts of his home collapsing into a massive crater, "and as I approach the back of the house, I see our screen room just sticking out 3 feet off the ground, so I knew instantly, ok, something opened up."

Dupre has actually known there was a sinkhole under his house for two years. Because of disagreements with his insurance company, he says, work to shore up the home only started three days ago.

The Dupres say they feel lucky to be alive. The Dupres have not been allowed back in their home and they never will.  Their house and the one next door have both been condemned.  Crews are already demolishing it and have started to fill in the hole with dirt.

Hawaii sinkhole swallows truck — with driver in it
12/31/13 -  Hawaii woman was thankful to be alive Tuesday after an enormous sinkhole opened up and swallowed her pickup truck — with her still inside.  Velma Deluz of Paauilo was driving to work on the Big Island after a weekend of major rainstorms when Pohakea Mauka Road shifted and gave way Monday morning, the state's civil defense office said.

"When I made the turn, the road just sucked me right in, and then I just fell in," Deluz told NBC station KHNL of Honolulu. "I tried to climb out through the window because it fell on its side."

Deluz said she suffered minor rib injuries but was otherwise all right.
The driving rains continued throughout the day Monday, setting a Dec. 30 record of 5.51 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

Watch as giant sinkhole swallows up Brazilian neighbourhood house by house as terrified inhabitants look on in disbelief

•The terrifying incident was captured on CCTV in the city of Abaetetuba

•Gigantic craters, caused by water erosion, opened up in the ground

•Electrical wires above the houses started snapping - giving a warning sign

By Janet Tappin Coelho In Brazil

PUBLISHED: 05:01 EST, 7 January 2014  | UPDATED: 07:51 EST, 7 January 2014

Residents in a town in the north of Brazil screamed in horror as they watched their homes disappear into massive sink holes on the weekend.

The terrifying incident was captured on CCTV cameras in the city of Abaetetuba in the northern state of Para.

These pictures show the moment gigantic craters, caused by water erosion, open up in the ground and swallow dozens of houses.

Moments before the disaster happened, electrical wires above the houses started snapping and breaking.

This was the warning sign that more than likely saved people’s lives – as no-one was injured in the disaster.

Panicking residents can be seen frantically running to a house on the right of the screen as a woman on the first floor resorts to desperate measures by throwing her child out of a window.

Sinkholes: Exploring the science behind the catastrophes

A new special on Discovery's "Destination America" includes first-hand accounts of sinkhole survivors. Geologist Drew Glasbrenner - who is on the show - and contributor Michio Kaku, a physics professor at the City College of New York, talk to the "CBS This Morning" co-hosts about the phenomenon and why Florida is 'ground zero' for sinkholes.

Downtown Detroit hit by massive sinkhole

Officials say it could take days to repair a massive sinkhole that has opened up in downtown Detroit.

The sinkhole, which opened up Saturday just blocks away from the North American International Auto Show, is now about 14 feet deep, WJBK reports.

Traffic in the area is being disrupted as crews work to fix the hole, which is 10 feet wide, according to WWJ-AM.

When asked about the cause of the sinkhole, Michigan Department of Transportation spokeswoman Diane Cross said the city has “older substructures underneath the roadways.”

“Age is always a factor – that’s going to be the kind of thing that’s going to have to be determined as well,” she said, according to Deadline Detroit.

Laughing   Kentucky - Massive Sinkhole Swallows Vintage Corvettes
Feb. 12, 2014
Corvette fans may want to look away. A massive sinkhole opened up beneath the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, swallowing eight of the cars on display.
Museum officials said no one was in the museum at the time of the collapse, which triggered an alarm system early Wednesday morning.
The sinkhole appeared to be about twenty feet deep, and opened up under a domed section of the museum where the cars had been displayed on pedestals.
The hole developed in an area known as the Sky Dome. Engineers are examining the surrounding geology to determine if there is any risk of the hole worsening.

The cars were among some of the most coveted by admirers of the popular sports car. Among the cars affected:
•1993 ZR-1 Spyder on loan from General Motors
•2009 ZR1 "Blue Devil" on loan from General Motors
•1962 Black Corvette
•1984 PPG Pace Car
•1992 White 1 Millionth Corvette
•1993 Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Corvette
•2001 Mallett Hammer Z06 Corvette
•2009 White 1.5 Millionth Corvette

The museum plans to remain open, though the domed area where the damage occured cas been cordoned off. A structural engineer has been called to assess the damage and test stability of the surrounding areas.
The dome is part of the original museum, begun in 1992 and completed in 1994. The museum will celebrate its 20th anniversary in September.

More sinkholes open up in Britain

11:11 AM Friday Feb 21, 2014

A spate of sinkholes have opened up across the country as floodwater dissolves the underlying rock, while a "second wave" is likely to appear in the coming weeks as the rain stops and the ground begins to dry, the British Geological Survey warned yesterday.

The number of sinkholes reported has soared to six so far this month - many times more than the one to two that is typical across the whole of a normal year, experts said.

These have generally occurred as soluble rocks such as chalk, limestone and gypsum have been eroded by a sudden infusion of water from the heavy rainstorms which has made existing underground cavities bigger and causing the ground above it to collapse.

A house collapsed in Ripon this week when a sinkhole appeared following the erosion of the underlying gypsum.

This followed a particularly large 20ft deep sinkhole in a Hemel Hempstead garden on Saturday which forced the evacuation of about 20 homes

"There has been a significant increase in sinkholes over the past few weeks and it's reasonable to suggest that this is related to the increase in rainfall," said Dr Vanessa Bank, of the British Geological Survey.

"How long this goes on for very much depends on the weather. But there is likely to be more rainfall and my personal opinion is that we are talking about weeks," she added.

Dr Anthony Cooper, also of the British Geological Survey, said that as the rainfall declined and the land started to dry out a " second wave" of sinkholes was likely. This is because, as the hole beneath the ground drains out, the covering materials become heavier - at the same time as the increased buoyancy from rising groundwater levels is taken away.

"How long the 'second wave' lasts depends on the local geology and how the water is stored, but it will be over the next few months," Dr Cooper said.

The south east of England - from Norwich down to the coast is particularly susceptible to sinkholes because there is a lot of chalk, while parts of Yorkshire, such as Doncaster and Ripon are more susceptible. The South West, where the underlying rock is less soluble, is less at risk.

Sinkholes are naturally occurring cavities - or holes in the ground - created by the erosion and drainage of water and can be just a few feet across or large enough to swallow whole buildings.

When a hole develops above a manmade cavity, for example where mining has taken place and hasn't been properly filled, it is known as a dene hole - although these cases are typically lumped in with sink holes. Two of this month's sinkholes are related to former mines.

Other sinkholes to have opened up this month include a 30ft deep one in a driveway in Walter's Ash, near High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, and swallowed up a Volkswagon Lupon.

Last week, a 10-mile stretch of the M2 in Kent had to be closed after a 15ft sinkhole opened up in the central reservation near Sittingbourne.

Although there has been a spate of sinkholes appearing this month, the most famous one appeared in Norwich back in 1988. As the driver of a Number 26 double-decker bus attempted to pull away on the Earlham Road just outside the city centre, a large section of the road surface collapsed beneath the rear wheels following the collapse of the 11th century chalk mine beneath. The passengers managed to scramble out before the vehicle slipped further into the pit and the event hit the headlines around the world.

However, even this sinkhole pales in comparison to some of the sinkholes seen in the US. In 2010, one of the most devastating sinkholes in recent times hit Guatemala City. An area approximately 65ft wide and 100ft deep collapsed, swallowing a three-storey factory and killing 15 people. The sinkhole was caused by a number of factors including an influx of water from Tropical Storm Agatha and leakage from a local sewerage pipe.

The earth is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is violently shaken.
Isaiah 24:19


They quickly forgot His works;  They did not wait for His counsel,
But craved intensely in the wilderness, And tempted God in the desert.
So He gave them their request, But sent a wasting disease among them.

When they became envious of Moses in the camp, And of Aaron, the holy one of the LORD,

The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And engulfed the company of Abiram.
And a fire blazed up in their company The flame consumed the wicked.
Psalm 106:13-17

But if the LORD creates something new, and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that belongs to them, and they go down alive into Sheol, then you shall know that these men have despised the LORD.”
Numbers 16:30

Sinkhole epidemic Terrifying holes that are opening up all over Britain: They’re appearing at FIVE TIMES their normal rate


   Sinkholes seen in Kent, South-East London and Hemel Hempstead
   One in High Wycombe engulfed a car as it was parked in the driveway
   Expert believes sinkholes are appearing five times their normal rate
   Forecast heavy rain could mean more holes appear around the country

On Saturday, a huge sinkhole opened up at the side of a house in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. Swallowing up half of the front lawn, it was 35ft wide and 20ft deep.

Last week, a hole as deep as a double-decker bus is high suddenly opened up in the back-garden of a house in South-East London, almost swallowing a child’s trampoline as the ground collapsed without warning.
Had the poor owner’s daughter been rushing out to play on the trampoline, she could have very easily have been seriously injured or even killed.
