  • Yes, I sure did saw it. That kind of stuff creeps me out big time. I think it said that it happens in almost the same area 3 years ago. So scary!! I don't wanna know how deep it is!

  • It is caused by water dripping into a cavern ....water pools into a puddle, round shape and drips through the soil....into a cavern (In this case the sewer system.) After a while, there is no more to hold it up. This could happen anywhere.

  • I think I heard 100ft deep. It is wild to me that it is perfectly round.

    The sinkhole appears to be about 60 feet (18 meters) wide and about 30 stories deep, said James Currens, a hydrogeologist at the University of Kentucky.
