About our Sinkholes news
Latest news on sinkholes, which are formed when water erodes an underlying cave or cavern, causing the ground above to collapse. Sinkholes can be large or small, and can occur suddenly or slowly over time.
They are often found in areas with limestone or other soluble rocks, as these are more easily eroded by water. Sinkholes can also occur in areas of heavy rainfall or drought, as either can lead to changes in the water table and increased erosion.
Sinkholes can pose a danger to people and property. They can damage roads, buildings, and other infrastructure, and can be deadly if someone happens to be in the area when a sinkhole forms.
There are several ways to try to prevent sinkholes from forming, including stabilizing the ground with fillers or by redirecting groundwater. However, once a sinkhole forms, it is often difficult to repair.
