People might say that holes

are pretty easy to see.

But what if one was right

underneath where you work,

or where you are now, and

it right at your feet.

The way sinkholes are made

is water goes thru dirt,rocks,

and minerals. This weakends

the support that we have when

we walk on surfaces.


Sinkholes can be formed

natural or caused by people.

Humans can cause sinkholes

by drilling, mining, or just a broken

water pipe/drain pipe.


People can’t even see cracks in the

ground before it’s too late. Sinkholes

can cause accidents outside of the

sinkhole, like cars in the distance

crashing into each trying to avoid

the sinkhole.


People who are near a sinkhole

will run like there's no tomorrow.

Sinkholes are pretty dangerous,

they can be small, but some swallow

buildings.
