Massive sinkhole opens up in Burlington, Iowa

A massive sinkhole, around seven feet deep, appeared on a main road in Burlington Wednesday. Officials say a two-inch hole in an underground pipe, a water main break, caused the sinkhole.

"A lot of people are interested in it," resident Savanna Evans said. "A lot of people are taking pictures. You see it all over Facebook right now."

The sinkhole is right at the border of Burlington and West Burlington on Mount Pleasant Street.

"I drive on this street every day on my way to work, right there where this hole is," resident David Francis said.

"It does affect traffic," business owner Randy Wagler said.

Residents say they are surprised to see it.

"I kind of looked down, and was like, 'That's a big hole you've got there, mayor,'" Evans said.

Couple discover backyard sinkhole in Schuyler Falls, New York

A sinkhole opened up in the backyard of a Schuyler Falls property. Highway departments from Plattsburgh and Schuyler Falls teamed up to bring the resident enough sand to fill the sinkhole
Dennis Trost and his wife discovered a sinkhole last week in the backyard of their Schuyler Falls home.

"Well, it's scary when you hear all the stories. Then it happens to you and you don't know what the heck's going to happen," said Trost.

Since finding the sinkhole, Trost said the gaping hole has only grown. When the Highway Department officials arrived the hole was about 5 feet deep.

"We came running out and there was no dirt around but this big hole was here, so we kind of backed off and looked inside it because it was undermine quite a bit," said Trost.

Schuyler Falls Highway Department Superintendent John Rock said sinkholes are rare for the North Country, and it's often difficult to determine the cause.

"[Trost] said he's been here 20-something years and it wasn't filled in, so it must be an underground spring or something," said Rock.

Rock said another possibility is that there used to be a rotting tree in the spot which created an underground hole.

Large sinkhole opens up in Grayson Valley, Alabama

The flood-waters have receded, leaving behind a big mess in some places, including a big sinkhole in one neighborhood.

A sinkhole opened up on Pine Tree Lane just off of Brewster Road in the Grayson Valley area of Birmingham. Police say the hole is about 6 feet deep.

Traffic has been blocked off so if you drive in that area you'll need to find another way around. The worry is that the water coming out from under the road will soon make the whole street collapse.

The New Normal: Sinkholes still plague Palmyra, Pennsylvania

© Earl Brightbill — Lebanon Daily News
A front end loader is used to fix a sinkhole on South Grant Street south of Cherry Street in Palmyra on Monday. Borough officials believe the new sinkhole may be connected to a hole that opened at a nearby property in the past few weeks ago.
With April showers and the spring thaw, sinkholes are starting to open again around Palmyra.

On Monday, borough crews worked on filling a new sinkhole that was reported during the weekend in an alley along the 300 block of East Cherry Street between South Harrison and South Grant streets. Crews also were patching a sinkhole about two feet in diameter that reopened on South Grant Street on Friday, according to a borough official.

The latest sinkhole was reported Sunday in an alley next to 320 E. Cherry St., borough manager Roger Powl said. He believes it may be connected to a sinkhole that opened on that property at the rear of the house two or three weeks ago.

"It's probably the same hole. It's just getting larger," he said. "It's about the diameter of a basketball."

In October, three large sinkholes opened in the same block of East Cherry Street between the alley and South Grant Street, forcing the evacuation of several families. Residents have been concerned that sinkholes will migrate.

Work to repair sinkhole starts in Derry Township, Pennsylvania

PennDOT road crews have started work to repair a sinkhole along Route 422 at the east end of Derry Township.

PennDOT crews will first excavate and determine the size of the sinkhole. Depending on the size, the repair work may take most of the day to complete, according to a PennDOT news release.

The repair work is affecting both directions of Route 422, and a traffic signal at the intersection of East Derry Road has been placed on flash. Flaggers are assisting drivers through the work area.

Drivers are advised to seek alternate routes or allow additional time in their travel plans in order to avoid delays.

The work was originally scheduled for Monday, but was postponed because of rain.

Crawley dual carriageway where sinkhole emerged shut for a week, UK


CLOSED: The dual carriageway is set to be shut for more than a week
One side of a dual carriageway in Crawley where a "sink hole" has emerged is expected to be closed for more than a week, it has been revealed this morning (Monday).

It appeared yesterday afternoon (Sunday) on the northbound side of the A23 (London Road) between the Fleming Way roundabout, where Astral Towers is based, and the roundabout for Lowfield Heath, close to Gatwick Airport.

A Thames Water spokeswoman described the hole as a "void" as it had been caused by a pressured pipe leaking, rather than a sinkhole, as they occur naturally.

She added: "Thames Water engineers are investigating a leak on a large pressurised sewer pipe beneath the A23 between Crawley and Gatwick Airport.

Hillary Clinton with two members of Pussy Riot
Former Secretary of State and presumed 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner, Hilary Clinton took time on Thursday at the fifth annual Women in the World Summit in New York to pose for a photo with two members of the Russian punk protest group Pussy Riot.

A photograph of Hillary Clinton with two members of the Russian punk rock protest band taken on Thursday evening has been tweeted by Mrs. Clinton with the message:

Great to meet the strong & brave young women from #PussyRiot, who refuse to let their voices be silenced in #Russia.

The tweet quickly went viral with close to 5,000 favorites and close to 4,100 retweets in six hours.

Comment: For more on the "irony" of Mrs. Clinton's support of Pussy Riot see Joe Quinn's SOTT article:
'Pussy Riot', the U.S. State Department and Economic Shock Therapy
When the US government sanctioned the beating and arrest of US citizens for swaying from side to side in the Jefferson Memorial a couple of years ago, it provoked no response from the Western media (and therefore the Western zombie-citizens who rely entirely on the media for their 'opinions'). Yet the Russian government, sorry, 'Putin' (because everyone knows Putin is a dictator, right?) is broadly denounced as a 'tyrant' by these same Western zombies (again because their 'outraged opinion' was deftly inserted into their brains by the Western media) for putting a stop to the ugly spectacle of deranged Russian women sticking chickens up their vaginas in supermarkets, daubing outlines of phalli on bridges, staging 'orgies' in a museum and defiling the peace and tranquility of Russian Orthodox churches as part of their three year long international attack on the Russian government.

Disconnect? For sure, but, like I said, don't expect any logic from the collective mind of the citizens of Western zombie nations. All you can hope to do is understand the psychopathic logic of Western governments and the way it infects the minds and manipulates the emotions of Western citizens.

'Pussy Riot', or 11 Russian women between the ages of 20-33, has received direct moral support from the US State Department and likely indirect financial support, and appears to be one aspect of the US government's decade-long attempt to undermine Russian society and its president, Vladimir Putin.

NED-funded Oksana Chelysheva of the US State Department-funded "Russian-Chechen Friendship Society, who is also coordinator of the 'Pussy Riot' campaign in Finland.For the last 30 years the US State Department has created and used phony NGOs in many countries as an advance guard for 'regime change'. Funneling $billions into 'student' and 'activist' groups in foreign countries, the US government attempts to carefully prepare the local population for 'revolution' that is not of their making and has nothing to do with improving their lot (if indeed it needs improving) and everything to do with getting rid of a, usually democratically-elected, leader of a sovereign country because, in one way or another, he or she refuses to roll over and play dead for 'pax americana'.
