Sinkholes: Are we safe?
Some of you have heard about the Florida guy that got sucked into a sinkhole along with part of his house yesterday. Wouldn't that be your worst nightmare? It made me wonder what kind of chance there is of that happening here?
Lewrockwell.com posted a story today with a map that put my mind at ease. Looks like we're not in a danger zone. Still, just cause you're paranoid...and sometimes sinkholes can be caused by broken water lines and such. Remember that big one in San Francisco a year or two, or three ago?
I wonder about H Street in Eureka, a few blocks south of Harris, every time I drive by there. The road always has two or three spots where water seeps up through the pavement. Must be an underground spring or something. I can't help but wonder if that spring is slowly eating away at the ground underneath?
Will it finally collapse into a huge sinkhole one of these days when I'm driving over it?
