Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

Default SINKHOLE!

No one was hurt. The residents heard cracking and ran out in time. The houses are situated on a strip of land between two lakes, and a spring runs underneath, eroding the ground below. (The whole area is pretty much like that.) It is my understanding that one of the houses has had sinkhole remediation in the past.



They caught one of the houses collapsing into the sinkhole on video. Very dramatic.

Not surprising with all the rain in the last week, and being on the coastal plain.
