World still grappling with epidemic of sinkholes: Chinese village suffers over 20 sinkholes in five months

January 15, 2013CHINAResidents in the village of Lianyuan in southern China’s Hunan Province have been treading rather gingerly these last few months. Over 20 sinkholes have opened up in the ground since last September. The cave-ins, which range in size, have seen houses collapse and rivers run dry. And there is never any warning as to where and when the sinkholes occur. According to local authorities, the main reason for the cave-ins is the number of coalmines in the area. It is not clear what steps are being taken to prevent further sinkholes from appearing. –MSN

    I wonder what’s happening to the miners working these mines ?

    Can sinkholes be a link to / result of the ongoing polarshift and the very active volcanos all around the world ?

    • It is the polar shift.The earth is slowing down in rotation.It will soon stop and reverse.I have read that the sun rises and sets in a different place now especially noticed in Alaska and Iceland.From what it read the North Pole has shifted more towards Russia.The die off of birds and sea life are still going on, the news is not reporting these like they did last year in 2012.I believe these birds and sea life are loosing their natural compass.Something is going on,we are not being told the truth but have to research ourselves to find an answer.Unfortunately bad people in government are taking advantage of the situation (just my opinion).Linking all these activities and why our US is preparing for something catastrophic says something,shouldn’t it? Families,communities should come together and not divide because lives will depend on our responsiveness.

  3. I am curious,is there no way to fill these sinkholes in or do they just keep sinking in,seems like if its a mine caving in,wouldnt you be able to fill that in or do I just not understand what a sinkhole is?

      The crust of the earth is full of caverns. Think of pouring sand in a bottle, once the bottle (cavern) is full, the sinking stops.

    There are few comments on this because it’s already covered in the TEP. It’s expected,.. but not welcome.

    As the population explodes and expands they build EVERYWHERE and PRESTO! More earthquakes and sinkholes are detected. What a coincidence, huh???

    When there was on one around, no one detected them, heck, no one cared! Now there seems to be more of them!! Right where they live! What a coincidence, huh?

    When you take something out of the ground, you should put something back in it’s place. We can’t keep taking water, gas, gravel, coal out of the ground and not replacing it with something. All these empty holes, tunnels, caverns will collapse eventually. Too many people are eating up the Earth. :'(
