Florida Sinkhole Swallows man of his bedroom

A Florida Sinkhole swallows a man from his bedroom.

A man while sleeping in his bedroom on Sunday was swallowed by a Sinkhole in Florida.The Florida Sinkhole was 20 feet wide and  the opening was covered by the house.The rescue operation was called off by the fire and rescue team because of fears that the house might collapse on them.Two neighboring houses were also evacuated as a precaution.

The Crew are now planning to demolish the house over the Florida sinkhole as it has now become very dangerous for the fire and rescue team to continue on the pursuit of the man who fell on Sunday night.

It has also been said that there are hardly any houses in Florida which are immune from the phenomenon and this is also said to be common within the area.

How are Sinkholes Formed

You might wonder how these holes are actually formed especially the Florida Sinkhole that swallowed a man.To answer the question these are mostly formed by the process of suffosion.In Short a sinkhole which is also called as a sink, snake hole, swallow hole, swallet, doline, or cenote is a natural depression or hole in the Earth's surface which is caused by karst processes

For example,Carbonate cement holding the sandstone particles that is dissolved by groundwater may carry away the lax particles which gradually causes a void.Apart from Florida Sinkholes this phenomenon is generally found all over the world.In the United States the they are common in places such as Texas,Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, and Florida,as per the U.S. Geological Survey.

Sinkhole Facts:

A few facts that will help you determine if you might also be having the problem is
  • Cracking in your walls, floor, pavement
  • Slumping or sagging trees
  • Formation of small puddles where water is collecting during rains.
  • Physical depressions or holes in the yard of the street
  • Not able to close doors and windows properly
The Florida Sinkhole was the first time i heard about such a phenomenon and i somehow feel that the last decade has shown us a lot of new things about the nature.Hopefully we as people can learn from all the natures signs and try to contribute towards lessening the Global Warming and pollution wherever possible to make this world a better and a safer place to live in.
