Massive Sinkhole in Carlsbad
To quote Avelino on Twitter, my source for the link, “Oh crap”
Oil industry sinkhole threatens to swallow city
Having lived in Carlsbad for a while, I could make some flippant joke, but I won’t. This is a pretty freaking serious problem.
Carlsbad and the surrounding areas have been pretty well mangled due to oil and potash mining. I believe it was only a matter of time that something like this happened.
Sometimes it takes something huge to create a wake up call.
Got the good town of Carlsbad on my mind today!
