Texas: Giant unstable sinkholes are growing, could be on verge of catastrophic collapse

Two giant sinkholes in Texas are getting bigger and are at risk of collapsing – the effects of which could be “catastrophic”, scientists have warned. The sinkholes, found in the towns of Wink and Kermit, have been observed via satellite, and images indicate major changes could be underway.

The two sinkholes are currently a mile apart. The first one – Wink 1 – appeared in 1980, while the second – Wink 2 – opened up in 2002. They were caused by intense gas and oil extraction in the region from the 1920s to the 1960s. Wink 1 is currently 110m across, while Wink 2 can reach up to 270m. . . .

. . . . The team also found large areas of subsidence around the sinkholes, indicating more could appear in the future, or that they could collapse into one massive sinkhole. . . .(more + video, photos)

Rivers Disappear into Sinkholes in Mexico

The WatchersTliapa and Tlacuapa rivers disappear into sinkholes, Mexico

After Atoyac River that disappeared when a huge sinkhole opened up on February 28, 2016, two more rivers in the mountains of the Mexican state of Veracruz are suffering the same fate. This brings the number of rivers in the region that have drained into subsoil in less than two months to three.

“Sorry to interrupt this thread, but the ground is smoking, gas is pluming, and the New Madrid area is booming! The fire department is leaning toward seismic explanation!!

Trenton Fire Department
February 29 at 3:11pm · Trenton, MO, United States ·
There have been reports of loud, unexplained booming noises at night in the Trenton area, and a lot of people have questions.

To put it bluntly, we do not know what is causing them – and neither does anybody else.

This also does not appear to be a local phenomena- these sounds have been reported in different areas of the US for a while now.

There are a lot of theories; people often compare the sound to that of fireworks, there is a weather phenomena called a “cold boom” which can produce this type of noise, and the behavior of groundwater (or fracking fluid) in general can cause such noises, the shifting of tectonic plates can cause similar phenomena, and then of course there are many possible man-made causes, such as the “sonic boom” of aircraft traveling at speeds in excess of Mach 1.

These noises have not been localized enough for us in this area to pin point them, and the lack of seismographic monitoring equipment this far north in Missouri is a factor in buttoning down a geological origin. The distribution of reports in the US seems to roughly coincide with areas of known seismic activity, so a geological explanation seems likely.”

Cause of recurring booms remains a mystery

Mystery black rain hits Michigan town: Tar-like substance falls from the sky and leaves residents bewildered as it covers cars, porches and driveways

  • The black, oily substance first appeared on at least six driveways in Harrison Township, Michigan, on Sunday
  • The mystery substance was seen on resident’s roofs, cars and porches
    Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officials collected samples of the substance on Wednesday
  • Residents originally believed that the substance could have come from the nearby Selfridge Air National Guard Base
  • The airbase released a statement saying it was not coming from their area
    It could be at least a week before the city discovers what the substance is
