Mother Earth hated him.
Doing it the right way....
I too was thinking tremors
Massive sinkhole? You can't even tell by looking at the exterior of that shanty.
Looks like they gave up on finding a body.
They're tearing the house down.
I'm guessing it was already condemned.
It prolly was when they were still living in it.
Obviously this is huge down here...
There are real sinkholes like this one, but not necessarily as severe. Then there are lots of fake insurance claims for sinkholes that are nothing more than normal ground settling. About 4 years ago it was an epidemic, the biggest scan going.
A catastrophic event like this is really rare.
My grandfather had one when he lived down there...GINORMOUS ant hill caused it.
This literally is like 20 miles from where I live. It's huge locally. These sinkholes are crazy. A few years back, one swallowed a car at a rest area on I-4. Shut that area down for weeks. That's gotta be some scary shit though, one minute you're asleep, the next you're breathing in dirt and dying. Had to have been horrific for the guy. That area this happened in is a little run down, but nothing really different than an older housing development.
I hope you and yours are okay.
Did they happen to find his brothers teeth down there? Oof.
I kinda drove through that area today, unintentionally. I got off I-4 because I just had enough of it and wanted to take back roads the rest of the way. Definitely an older lived-in area... I really feel for the guy and his family. It's fuckin' awful.
"DEY NEVER FOUND DA BODY!"
What? Movies were only produced in the late 80s and early 90s.
Somebody's getting some Si-eh-ink hoooooole.
Gotta love fear mongering in the news:
That's likely fueled by the anti-fracking jizzbags. Some of them are posting stuff on local forums down here, acting all innocent and inquiring about whether Florida has fracking going on.
They have pretty much pulled up stakes here....unless there is already a well.
And did you read the article? They are saying it's the coal mines in the Scranton area...which..if you are going to be dumb enough to build a home over one or on a Column dump...then you know the possibilities. And the last memorable mine subsidence was in the early 80's.
Yeah I know. My cousin was working up there delivering the equipment. He moved down to OK/TX border once all the wells were established and they took all the equipment out of the Pocono area.
Video of the hole,
They ever get his body out?
