While it appears that our economy is in a deflationary sinkhole, numerous sinkholes are being reported throughout the world. Wiki says, “A sinkhole, also known as a sink, shake hole, swallow hole, swallet, doline or cenote, is a natural depression or hole in the earth’s surface caused by karst processes – the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks.”
A natural depression? Many of the recent sinkholes occurring around the world are not in an area where there are carbonate rocks, so what’s up? Or should we ask, what’s going down?
Two new sinkholes were reported today.
HARRIMAN, Tenn. (WVLT) — State transportation officials are warning drivers to avoid a sinkhole on Interstate 40 westbound in Roane County. TDOT says maintenance crews discovered the sinkhole Monday morning in the right-hand lane at mile marker 344.5, just past the Harriman exit. http://www.volunteertv.com/news/headlines/99242529.html?ref=529
