Update News. Big Hole in Schmalkaden, Germany. Complete With Video

Updated on September 15, 2015

There’s a big question came up in my mind. Why my traffic increasingly so fast. For a couple days I get more than one thousand viewer. Commonly I got seven hundreds until nine hundreds viewers. This made me curious. So I back to my account and check my hub statistic. I found that two my hubs have a lot of viewers, Big Hole in Guatemala, Another Weird Phenomenon and Another Big Hole in China (Complete with Sinkhole Theory).  This was also made me surprise. Because this is happen again after these hubs have top position and reach top scores a couple months ago.  Other question is why these hubs popular again? I have to check out there, to find the reason why people love to read a big holes news. Until I read my newspaper and find surprising news. There’s other big holes come up again in Schmalkaden, Germany. Schmalkaden is a small town in Germany.  Actually I have post about the same phenomenon in two country, Guatemala and China. Other hubbers from USA also give a report that this also happen in USA and other country, although in small size. I will not reveal the cause, because I've written the sinkhole theory before, you can check my hub about this theory. But maybe I will give a little theory based on the trusted person in that area.

The same phenomenon also happened in the city of Saint-Jude, Montreal, Canada on May 10. This hole swallowed four persons from one family when suddenly a big hole gaping around their home. It also swallowed a truck that was passing through. Lucky, the truck driver survived from this incident. Giant big hole also appeared on Florida, USA. But for the Florida citizens a sinkhole was a natural phenomenon, this was not weird news.

Actually we all know and bored to read about this phenomenon again and again. But I have to share a fact about this phenomenon happen again in the other part of this earth. I get many comments from my friends. A lot of theory came up on my hub about big hole. Is the earth getting old? This is also a big reason for some my friends to answer why the big hole appear again and again. But this time I’ll share about another big hole with big size also appear in small town, in Germany. Maybe some of us have read about this from newspaper. I thought this news become an international issue.

Back to the news, a big hole was suddenly appeared in the middle of residential areas in the city of Schmalkalden, eastern Germany. The giant hole, which was said to have formed at about 3 a.m Monday, surprise many people around this area. I heard this incident swallowed an automobile and a resident garage. The good news is there’s no victim from this incident, no one was reported injured. Because of this hole six houses have been vacated and forced the evacuation of about 25 people from nine houses.

Source

According to CNN, which quotes the local newspapers, a giant sinkhole is measuring more than 130 feet wide and 65 feet deep. The local resident near this area reported that they hear weird voices, it was like a loud roar in the Monday morning. Maybe this is a sign there will be a big hole in this area. This sound made the people afraid and suddenly the big hole formed, they reported this incident to the police officer. According Lutz Katschmann, the official office environment and geological state of Thuringia, this incident possibility caused by foundation rock under the soil. Authorities planned to fix this hole, I heard that to fill this hole they need about 1,000 truckloads of gravels. I think this is a big job to do. To remind us how big this holes. Many people believe this is a natural phenomenon. Actually, according to US Geological Survey sinkholes are commonly found in areas where the bedrock is limestone and the ground water also took a part to create this phenomenon. I thought we all knew the same phenomenon which happened in Guatemala, last year (Huffingtonpost reports). I heard other information from the Head Office of the Thuringian mountains, Hartmut Kiessling. He said that the sinkhole has a natural cause (ireport.cnn.com). You can watch the video from this incident below.

From many theories appear in the surface, I hope the best for this earth. We can't stop the natural phenomenon. But better to prevent and give our love to this earth. I believe the earth will love to us if we want to care and maintain from disaster which caused by human error.

  • Big Hole in Guatemala, Another Weird Phenomenon

    A minute ago when I browse through internet, I found shocking news. This is really weird and I never found like this before. The weird phenomenon was happen in Guatemala. Because of Agatha storm struck the city of Guatemala and then a large hole (sinkhole) appeared in the middle of the city. This hole mysteriously appeared after the disaster.
  • Another Big Hole in China (Complete with Sinkhole Theory)

    Haven't lost the surprised me with a big hole in Guatemala City. But I heard another incident with the same scheme. It happened in China. We all know that natural phenomenon sometimes look weird. The big hole in Guatemala was shocking me much. And it happened again in China.

      P30,

      as a geologist, sinkholes are going to appen where the water table intersects the limestone bedrock. Dissolution holes that eventually breal to the surface are nothing spooky catastrophic and there are entire areas and topographies that exhibit this type of natural behavior- amazingly the areas sited are underlined by the limestone bedrock-The dissolution process has been happening for millions of years but now we humans are building on areas increasing the overhead weight and causing damage. if a sinkhole forms in the woods does it still make a sound...?

      great facts voted up good job I'll check out your other hub too

      Thanks, Support Med for coming to this hub with beautiful thought about this topic. I agree with you, we have to rebuild differently if we know that there's a bedrock or limestone even groundwater below the building. We need good technology to prevent this incident happen again. Nice to see you again.

      Since they know if the bedrock of limestone and groundwater can contribute to this happening, hopefully they will rebuild differently. I do think that the earth shifting has something to do with it as well. Glad when no one gets hurt. Thanks for sharing. Voted and rated.

      Welcome to this hub, Peggy W. Wow...I never thought that you care with this incident. I am glad to hear that. I hope someone or everyone pay attention to this phenomenon. At least there's a device to give a warning for the land movement which caused big hole. But I thought it need a big cost to create such of this device. Like tsunami early warning. Like you said before, so that people and animals are not injured. Thanks for you pray for me. I hope you always success. Take care!

      Many causes are known and some may never be fully understood. The sad part is that seems to be no early warning system so that people and animals are not injured. Wish I was smart enough to figure out which one of my hubs performs best. I have tried and just haven't accomplished it yet. I need someone more computer literate to lead me by the hand. Ha! Congratulations on your traffic! Hope the money is following that lead. You deserve it!

      Once again you’ve brought a most interesting phenomenon under our attention. You are so good with this, my friend. I will never stop following you, for you surprise me time and again with something I did not know exist. Take care.
