Giant Sinkhole Opens in Guatemala
GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala (Feb. 23) - A 330-foot-deep sinkhole killed two teenage siblings when it swallowed about a dozen homes early Friday and forced the evacuation of nearly 1,000 people in a crowded Guatemala City neighborhood.
Officials blamed the sinkhole on recent rains and an underground sewage flow from a ruptured main. They warned that the crater could widen or others could open up.
The bodies of the brother and sister were found near the enormous fissure, floating in a river of sewage. Their father was still missing, according to disaster coordinator Hugo Hernandez. View Complete Article
Just as I predicted. More sinkholes. And they appear to be getting extremely worse. Remember the collapsing of the earth in southern California swalling a whole neighborhood in 05, and then the mudslide that killed about 13 and demolished another neighborhood in that same state? These are the effects of global warming everyone. These are not isolated incidents. They are new occurrences and a phenomenon of the times in which we are now living.
As we continue to experience the unprecedented moisture and flooding, which we have been seeing over the past few years, we will continue to see the earth collapsing. Its as simple as that. In my estimation, it may be time to move your house off the hill, and come inland. Just food for thought. Much love and many blessings to you.
