Why Are Giant Sinkholes Appearing All Over America? Is Something Happening To The Earth’s Crust?

Where are all of these giant sinkholes coming from?  Of course there have always been sinkholes, but over the past few years it seems like both the severity and the number of giant sinkholes has been increasing dramatically.  So exactly why are so many giant sinkholes appearing all over America all of a sudden?  Is something happening to the earth’s crust, or is there some other explanation?  The “experts” are blaming this epidemic of sinkholes on things like loose soil, acidic groundwater, new construction, leaky water pipes, coal mines, fracking, long periods of drought followed by rain, and depletion of underground aquifers, but do they really understand what is going on?  On Thursday, a 37-year-old man named Jeffrey Bush living near Tampa, Florida died when the earth underneath his home suddenly opened up and swallowed him alive.  His brother tried to help him when he heard Jeffrey screaming, but it was too late.  The entire bedroom was sucked deep into the earth and the home had to be rapidly abandoned.  Now authorities are admitting that he will probably never be found.  So is this type of thing really “normal”?  It would be one thing if this was just an isolated incident, but the truth is that giant sinkholes have been appearing with increasing frequency all over the planet lately. Could this be an indication that major earth changes are on the way?

Why Are Giant Sinkholes Appearing All Over America Is Something Happening To The Earth’s Crust

Florida has always been an area that has been prone to sinkholes, but the numbers do show that sinkhole damage in the state has increased very rapidly in recent years.  According to ABC News, insurance claims related to sinkholes more than doubled between 2006 and 2009…

Hillsborough County, where Seffner is situated, is part of an area in Florida prone to sinkholes, with insurance claims associated with them more than doubling between 2006 and 2009, according to a Florida Senate report.

But that is just Florida, right?

Other parts of the country are not having this kind of a problem, right?


Just check out what has been happening in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania lately.  There are dozens of sinkholes that have opened up in Harrisburg, and the city is so broke that it doesn’t have the money to fix all of them.

In fact, at this point there are 41 sinkholes that have been documented in Harrisburg, and many of them are right in the middle of the street…

Pennsylvania’s state capital is suffering from a rash of monster sinkholes, but city officials are too broke to do anything about it.

Loose soil and leaky, century-old underground water pipes are to blame for the municipal nightmare, which came to a head on the New Year’s Eve when a 50-foot sinkhole yawned open along Fourth Street, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The eight-foot deep crater — one of at least 41 in the city — is so large, locals made it a “check-in” site on the social media site Four Square.

Some cheeky residents and the media nicknamed the hole “Super Sinkhole Walter.”

Of course there have been lots of cities throughout U.S. history that have experienced such an epidemic of sinkholes, right?

There is no reason to be alarmed, right?

In a previous article about sinkholes, I talked about a sinkhole that recently formed in Ohio that was the size of four football fields and that was more than 30 feet deep.  It caused part of State Route 516 to collapse and authorities were projecting that the road would continue to stay closed for months to come.

But that is “normal”, right?

The giant Louisiana sinkhole in Assumption Parish that made headlines all over the nation last year is now more than 800 feet in diameter.  It just continues to grow, and authorities have no idea when it will stop growing.

But this kind of thing happens all the time, right?

Just recently, large sinkholes forced roads to close in New Jersey and in Arizona.  Of course those incidents will soon be forgotten because there are more news stories about major sinkholes in the United States almost every single day now.  Giant sinkholes have been happening with such regularity that people hardly take notice anymore.

You can see some photos of some of the craziest sinkholes in recent years right here.  It would be one thing if giant sinkholes were just appearing in the United States, but unfortunately that is not the case.

For instance, a sinkhole that appeared in the middle of Guatemala City in 2010 was about 30 stories deep.

Down in Sarisarinama, Venezuela some sinkholes have appeared in recent years that are more than 1,000 feet wide.

China has been one of the worst areas of the world for sinkholes over the past several years.  In fact, just check out what has been happening in one village in China recently

Residents in the village of Lianyuan in southern China’s Hunan Province have been treading rather gingerly these last few months. Over 20 sinkholes have opened up in the ground since last September. The cave-ins, which range in size, have seen houses collapse and rivers run dry. And there is never any warning as to where and when the sinkholes occur. According to local authorities, the main reason for the cave-ins is the number of coalmines in the area. It is not clear what steps are being taken to prevent further sinkholes from appearing.

I could go on and on with more examples from all over the globe, but hopefully you are starting to get the point.

Giant holes are opening up all over the earth and swallowing homes, buildings, roads and sometimes even people.

So why is this happening?

Is the crust of the earth becoming more unstable?

Or is something else at work?

The giant fissure in the ground swallowed two cars in Page, Arizona, and caused 120 feet of highway to sink over 8 feet. But geologists are now also worried that the road may be irreparable for a long time because it appears that the whole side of the mountain is sinking!

    Oh no, there is sinkhole in one of my neighbor’s yards. Then some time ago, the county came out and did something to the water lines. They left a sink in our yard. I didn’t pay it any attention until all this coverage on sinkholes. I hope the sink in our yard doesn’t get worse.

    I was going to comment on the sinkholes, but all people in Pakalert Press care to comment is about the President no matter what the subject is. Scary how sick some people are.

    Aww Jeeze, another fear porn article. Beware the Underminer! He is beneath you but nobody is beneath him!

    Sink holes happen.
    Earth quakes happen.
    Tornadoes happen.
    Shit happens!

    It is the stink hole called Washington DC that you need to worry about. Things that fall in there never come out.

      if you think obama is anything more than a puppet and has any control over the agenda pushed forward, you sir are a moron. Left right up down, no matter who gets elected into office, it doesnt matter, it’s all a show to keep the ignorant distracted, while a select group of multinational elite push their agenda forward in nearly every country on this planet.

        Jp, We are all on the same page. Everyone already knows that Obama is a puppet, and that he has his own agenda. The Elite allow him to choose his own Czars and hire his criminal element friends but as you say he is a puppet in the end.
        We all know the simple fact that following the money will provide the source of the corruption. The Elite.
        No I do not mean millionaires I mean the billionaires to who a million is nothing. The excessively wealthy who are being given credit for “Job creation” all the while moving jobs out of the country and bringing in cheap foreign made crap. The same ones who push instant gratification and sucker people into spending their last dime for something they do not need.
        20-30 years ago “savings” was a big catch phrase. Now you do not hear it any more.
        We see hamsters driving little crappy Korean deathboxes and we call that “cool”.
        Now I must go back to eating this tasty grass. Look it’s the Wolf!

    Hey you people are missing the mark here, if you want these holes to be repaired. Just call them OBAMAS. He is just like a sink hole in that he lets your money disappear down a hole that can never be filled, has no bottom and no end in sight. If you realy want to expose the truth, he is more like a blackhole, because he even makes the USA disappear.
