Remind me never to live on a sand bar that is only there because of an old limestone reef.

In other news: Victims of sandy hurricane to not get their internet cables back due to living on a sandbar and they can either abandon their shack or buy LTE internet/phone at 10 times the price(bandwidth usage of 100GB a month).

StrikitRich: Amazing how many Farkers think sinkholes opening during the dry season is something new.

Its just like the shark attack storiies, the mass shooting stories, the accidental electrocution stories, and the robberies at 711.   Happens all the time but the media loves to make a big deal out of it.  24 hour news cycle - they have to fill all that dead air with something.
And it only took two posts to start the Florida bashing.  Another suprise.

I heard from an expert on npr that there are over 600 sinkholes per year in Florida. So this could be a headline almost everyday if we want.

Why was code enforcement called? Are they going to cite the sinkhole for being improperly constructed or un-permitted?

/maybe it was missing hurricane straps

I wasn't aware sinkholes could form inside of much larger sinkholes.
