Over 300 homes have been destroyed and several people displaced after several big cracks developed following heavy rain in Bupoto Sub County and Namisindwa town council in Namisindwa district, Uganda on May 23, 2018. The fissures in the ground go right through people’s houses, gardens and bridges have been washed away. Like Kenya, Uganda is situated in the valley of the East African Rift, which is in the process of splitting the African Plate into two new separate plates – the Nubian Plate and the Somali Plate. After giant cracks opened up in Kenya, now Uganda has its own cracks. Something big is happening in the region right now! Just to say… more
Construction on the US White House began in 1792. It has been almost continuously occupied by US presidents since 1800, barring a few years after the British set it on fire in 1814.
But that doesn’t mean that the present-day building is free of hazards—there are mice, cockroaches, and ants. And as of this past weekend, a sinkhole has been growing on the north lawn, Voice of America reporter Steve Herman observed, just near the press briefing room… more
Four sinkholes have opened up in a fast-growing retirement community, The Villages, in Florida, including one in front of a home that was abandoned months ago because of an earlier sinkhole. The new sinkholes opened up Monday in The Villages following a week of nonstop rain in central Florida.
The biggest sinkhole is about 30 feet deep and 25 feet long. No evacuations were ordered as of Monday afternoon…. more & watch videos
A giant crack measuring more than 400 meters long and 4 meters deep opened up at the border between Tláhuac and Milpa Alta, two of the 16 boroughs of Mexico city, Mexico on May 10, 2018. The day after, the same water main broke up again forming a huge sinkhole, that narrowly swallowed up a nearby house. Officials are investigating if there could be a link between the water main break, these geological events and the strong earthquake of September 19, 2017… more
For residents of an Ocala neighborhood that had been forced to evacuate last week due to sinkholes, it seems terra firma has it in for them.
Two more sinkholes opened up in that same neighborhood Tuesday, bringing the number to 12 plaguing the Fore Ranch community recently in this Central Florida city of nearly 60,000 residents.
Cars, swallowed whole, have sunk into gaping maws as if on a disaster movie set.
“Yeah man, it’s crazy,” Ocala neighbor Eddie Betaseourt told WCJB ABC 20. “I got kids in the house and I want them to play in the backyard, but if a sinkhole opens up, they could get hurt.”… more
A massive sinkhole has opened up on a New Zealand farm, with a volcanologist saying it is the biggest he has ever seen in the country.
The crack was discovered at Earthquake Flat, 15 kilometres south-east of Rotorua on New Zealand’s North Island.
Vulcanologist Brad Scott visited the farm where it was discovered and said it would have taken decades for the underground cavity to grow, but was spurred on by recent heavy rain.
“The largest I’ve seen prior to this would be about a third of the size of this, so this is really big,” he said.
“The cavity would have been present from all the rainfall events over the last 40, 50, 100 years…. more
Alarming reports are coming out of Africa that a 50-foot-deep crack that has developed in the earth across many miles actually could end up – eventually – splitting the continent into two parts.
The crack has appeared along Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, and runs from Somalia, in the northeast part of the continent, hundreds of miles down to South Africa, they say.
CBS explained it opened “suddenly” and “many scientists believe it could end up breaking Africa’s continent apart.
The Washington Examiner say scientists suggest it is an indication of tectonic plate movement.
CBS quoted Smithsonian geologist Ben Andrews with the comment, “We’re seeing a crack that in all likelihood formed over many thousands of years or hundreds of thousands of years.”… more
We do not know when or if this will take place but it is very interesting. We can tell you that during the tribulation a lot is going to occur that no one will be prepared for.
Thousands of fish were killed and a two-person boat almost swallowed into an enormous sinkhole after the largest dam in Franca, Sao Paolo, Brazil was drained accidentally late Friday afternoon (15).
This footage is just terrifying!
Thousands of fish were killed and a two-person boat stalked into a hole after the largest dam in Franca, Brazil was completely drained by mistake on September 15, 2017.
The dam’s staff jumped into a boat to try saving some fish trapped in the mud after the water began to flow uncontrolled to Córrego do Espraiado… read more
