"It's CNN and all over the web. It's real. If you look in the pic
you can see the emergency services barracades down the street.
Ohhh... and these"
This is absolutely amazing. Whatever caused this sinkhole is
considerably serious than either the " result of rainwater
saturating the ground" or leaking sewage lines mentioned in
some reports. Also, there is not any of the surface evidence
that should be present, if a landslide was involved. Whoever
can get down there to study it has a publishable peer-reviewed
paper in hand.
I can't think how to explain this.
