A security camera shows us a hungry sinkhole having a snack

Sinkholes are a continuous source of frustration for home owners in Florida, but seldom do we get to see one in action. Check out this video taken by a security camera.

    Sinkholes can be pretty scary. This one could have easily killed the man on the machine. He is lucky he fell off the machine and to the right of it on to the pavement. He could have fallen into the hole and the machine could have landed on top of him crushing him to death. Rarely do we get to see such videos of sinkholes in action.

    We lost part of our backyard to a sinkhole years ago. I can personally attest to this sinkhole being mild. It could have gobbled him entirely up. The problem with sinkholes is that you just can never fill them in entirely. There are underground rivers flowing thru the limestone in FLorida. That sinkhole is connected to miles and miles of interconnected underground tunnels. It will probably fall in again.

Got something to say?
