What is a Sinkhole?
It is a hole or opening in the earth's surface that develops because of water erosion underneath the ground. These voids are usually found in areas that are easily eroded by flowing water. Water erosion is the most common cause. It can be due to natural water flowing because of rain, or even from man-made water flows which could come from poorly designed and constructed sewer systems, underground pipelines, or even from the diversion of water to new areas. Typically, it takes a long time to form, but unfortunately, their development is not easily detected from the surface. This means that the appearance of the void itself may be sudden and unexpected. The video above shows just how quickly a sinkhole can occur.
Certain types of rock and soil are more prone to the development of voids, such as limestone, caronate rocks, salt beds, and clay soils. It can be very small in size (about a foot in diameter) to very large (more than 60 feet in diameter). They can also range in their depth. Some are extremely deep and dangerous, and some are rather shallow. Find out just how devastating a massive sinkhole can be.
