The conditions that lead to sinkholes can lead to many problems such as those shown in the class’s video on sinkholes from CNN. The most damage from sinkholes tends to occur in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania (Welsh, 2013). As we saw in the CNN video, it brought to our attention that Florida is over a large aquifer that isn’t being replaced with fresh water, as we take out water. A sinkhole is basically an area of the ground doesn’t have a natural surface drainage during the rains due to the dissolving of that part of the ground. Due to this, all water will stay inside the hole and can then drain down into the subsurface underground.
