Sinkholes

We have seen news reports of the Florida’s sinkhole that swallowed part of a house, and a man while sleeping. While the news reports are dramatic, sink holes are not rare.

The map below shows that sinkholes are a threat across much of the country.

 

In Harrisburg Florida, where the house disappeared, 41 sinkholes have caused widespread damage, including taking out streets.

 

In Arizona, a major road collapsed causing a fifty mile detour due to a sinkhole along Highway 89A. From Ohio, Louisiana to New Jersey sinkholes are causing damage.

Some blame ground water usage, others believe fracking for natural gas is to blame, or new building construction. Perhaps the Lord is shaking the earth.  

Regardless, the earth is sinking, in many places.
