Sinkholes: The Swallowing Monster
You might think sinkholes are not important. Well you are wrong, because sinkholes are a very big deal. They are hollow holes in the ground that can suck up any objects like humans and cars. If you find a sinkhole look in a limestone region because that is where they are mostly formed. Since sinkholes are a very big deal the thing they are most important about is that they can create enormous destruction. They can even swallow entire buildings.
Can you believe of what sinkholes can do and what information they have, well let’s find out. After a sinkhole is formed it has a hole that can lead to caves or caverns. A sinkhole’s minimum width and length is five acres. Sinkholes are like caves because when sinkholes are formed they make a cave but after their roof collapses. Sinkholes are so huge enough that they can swallow a human from all the way to sky scrapers. One time a women was swallowed and stayed into a sinkhole for three hours but finally got help. Sinkholes are formed when carbon dioxide and water react together making carbonic acid which makes the weakening ground collapse. The cool thing about a sinkhole is that you need a sinkhole to form a geyser. Sinkholes might seem cool but if you’re an adult they could make you really mad. How, sometimes your most valuable car can be sunk into a sinkhole. Sinkholes also relate to landslides and landslides can lead to or make avalanches.
When you go and look for a sinkhole look in a limestone region because that is where they are mostly found. When you find I am saying for your own sake don’t get near it because when you get trapped you won’t be able to live on anything. The reason why a sinkhole is always in a limestone region is because the limestone floor is very weak which makes the sinkhole being able to suck the floor up. Now you know that if you see a sinkhole or your near limestone I would run because I don’t want to get stuck in the ground for a day, would you?
When you think about sinkholes forming everywhere remember sinkholes only form in a limestone region and if you see any reaction of a sinkhole if I were you I would run or else you will get swallow whole by the ground.
Don’t think that after sinkholes are formed they do something useful like other landforms, well they don’t. All their use is to swallow people if people walk by. The reason why nothing happens after it is formed is because it is just a very big deep hole in the ground. Another reason why is because you are not going to spend a week just filling a sinkhole with cement to build a building on top. Why would it take a week, because the average length (how deep it is) is over 100 feet deep. The most biggest sinkhole in all of the world was in Cairo, Egypt and it was 125 kilometers deep (75 miles). Finally, the last reason why it has no future is if it has no use it has no future.
