October 2012 continues to show an alarming increase in the number of sinkhole reports. They are also in addition to an increase in reports of landslides and even crevasses that are appearing in the earth.
The reports here only represent some of the sink hole news items reported in English media. As you can see, that is still a pretty high number of reports.
The huge Louisiana sinkhole near Bayou Corne continues to fill the newscasts this month as well. That issue is so huge though that it is covered separately, as a developing story.
To help try and make sense of the reports, so that we can end up with useful information, I've grouped the reports according to the cause. By doing that, you can see much more quickly where improvements could be made to avoid problems in the first place.
Check the analysis and opinion area for the reports for my ideas, and add your own ideas too in the comments.
If you know of a sinkhole in October 2012 that is not reported below, then please add your report too.
And feel free to comment on any report that you see anywhere on the site.
