Did ya'll read about the sinkhole in Meridian MS

Post  jones on November 8th 2015, 11:39 pm

This town has a maze of old brick storm water passages that have just been abandoned. This is the second "sink hole" to open from water washing all the dirt out from around the old brick. This one swallowed 15 parked cars in front of a brand new Ihop.

Just south of here is my old family land and we have real sink holes.You learned real quick to never drive faster than you can see the ground.


Anyway, it's nice to have some different news on the news instead of gangs killing themselves.

We have quite a few sink holes at out place. Find a new one on occasion and have to fill it in so my friend can cut hay. Down by my shop the creek just vanishes underground and you can hear water falling. Must be some caves...

The wife and I took the all day Cave tour just north of Bowling Green. I think caves a neat all though I'd sure hate to be buried alive in one!

I saw a group of people going head first into a hole just large enough to squeeze their hips through.

As soon as I saw it I knew it was an old storm line. the question now is, how secure is the line bellow the interstate? Looks like there is only 2-3' of dirt above it.

I was wrong it's not a old brick but a giant rusty pipe!
