Huge sinkhole appears in Ohio and Louisianna

A 200 ft long sinkhole collapses Ohio roadway Wednesday.
Officials say the sinkhole is 85 ft deep and 100 ft wide, a large chunk of route 516 disappeared into the ground as a result of this massive sinkhole.
Roadway crews we're forced to close off sections of the town as a safety precaution.
Luckily no one was hurt because the sinkhole opened up late at night or it could have been much worse.
Fire Captain Mike Mossor said the initial estimates puts the affected area at roughly the size of (4) four football fields.

Ohio Department of Natural resources Geologists are on site to try to determine what made the sinkhole open up. The collapse left a natural gas line exposed. Mossor said officials from the gas company quickly responded and corrected that problem before it became a serious issue,sadly it may take weeks before the road is properly repaired.

The Dover Township sinkhole isn't the only incident recently a Giant sinkhole burped in Louisiana on Tuesday.
Officials with the Assumption Parrish Police Jury say the giant Louisiana sinkhole burped around 11:30 am Tuesday.
The sinkhole continues to grow and is consuming lands and trees,people we're asked to evacuate.
A few trees in the southwest corner of the sinkhole fell during the event and vegetative debris along with hydrocarbon came up from below the hole.
Texas Brine removed all crews from the site and is checking the boom surrounding the area to make sure everything is intact.
It has been more than 5 months since gas bubbles were discovered on Bayou Corne and more than 3 months since the giant sinkhole forced local and state agencies to issue an evacuation for nearby residents.
