Texas sinkholes

Strange Sounds
Over 4,000 square miles in Texas are sinking in giant holes where new lakes are forming

It began with sinkholes. Two of them, gaping mouths to nowhere opening up as if to swallow the town of Wink, Texas. As they expanded, there were fears they might collide, morphing into one giant void and swallowing up the city. Now, an unprecedented study reveals Wink and its vast sinkholes are just a tiny part of a much bigger problem. . . .

  1. Twisters are far worse because of frequency and almost no warning! Almost like earthquakes. And, people no longer have shelters which I cannot understand. People used to have shelters! Tornados leave nothing but wells. That assumes, of course, that you have time or place to move to get away from a hurricane. It is more and more hard to evacuate because of the high population levels and crappy hotels. There is a weird randomness about tornados. I’ve seen trailers fair far better than houses. Irma was like a giant many hours long tornado. Being on the waterfront you are really lucky to be alive. Irma is an exception that could become the norm. But, doesn’t come every week or few weeks year round like tornados. I posted it however, because of the power outages and flooding. Tornados are probably why Calvinistic fatalism predominates in so much of America. And, why no one worries about nuclear.
