Will the White House sinkhole keep growing? - 12時間前  Mashable

This week, reporters strolling by the White House lawn noticed a growing depression in the well-manicured grass. The White House called it a sinkhole and after surrounding it with caution tape and cones, covered the small pit with a slab of green plywood.  But while sinkholes — depressions in the ground caused by a collapse or sinking of land — can grow into rather unsettling, gaping holes capable of swallowing houses in some parts of the U.S., it's extremely unlikely that anything of this sort will happen near the White House.  "The geology just isn’t right," Dave ...more
