It's certainly strange that these sinkholes are occurring globally right now.

What if they occur globally all the time, but there is just a trend in reporting them right now?

"And what use are the victories on the battlefield if we are ourselves are defeated in our innermost personal selves?" - St. Maximilian Kolbe

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

Seems odd that a perennial trend would only now start to be reported. Especially given it's dramatic and visual nature.

Not if there is an intention of stirring focus on something, increasingly and subtly inculcating fear and curiosity.

There's no way to gauge if they are occurring more as there is no database. What we know is they are being reported more, but reporting doesn't necessitate increased frequency in occurrence, just frequency in reporting.

Florida has always been an area that has been prone to sinkholes, but the numbers do show that sinkhole damage in the state has increased very rapidly in recent years.  According to ABC News, insurance claims related to sinkholes more than doubled between 2006 and 2009…

    Hillsborough County, where Seffner is situated, is part of an area in Florida prone to sinkholes, with insurance claims associated with them more than doubling between 2006 and 2009, according to a Florida Senate report.

But that is just Florida, right?

Other parts of the country are not having this kind of a problem, right?

Wrong.

Just check out what has been happening in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania lately.  There are dozens of sinkholes that have opened up in Harrisburg, and the city is so broke that it doesn’t have the money to fix all of them.

In fact, at this point there are 41 sinkholes that have been documented in Harrisburg, and many of them are right in the middle of the street…
