Hole

| | Comments (7)

Got 10/14 on this test. Wonder if that'd let me become a British citizen heh :)

And how freaky is this:

Lane Cove Hole

A big cave-in on the construction of the Lane Cove tunnel. There was someone in that room this morning when it happened. She got out ok. But tonight on the news they had footage of that floor collapsing into the hole, and the entire contents of her bedroom all went down the hole :( I wonder how much of the building will be left by tomorrow morning.

And Google Earth updated their picture of a decent chunk of Sydney, but they shifted the entire thing about 50 metres to the ENE. So all the marker points I placed in the southern part of the city are now a little way off to the right :(

Any word on what caused the cave in?

Well they're building a big road tunnel in the area. Apparently in that spot there's an onramp and a ventilation tunnel. But some of it goes through shale which isn't as stable, and the shale collapsed, taking the building on top of it with it!

DTrog took 730 digital photos of that today. He is looking for somewhere to host them, and then he will put a lot of them online.

In Columbus, oh, maybe 20 years ago, we has a sink hole swallow a Mercedes.

Nobody was hurt.

I believe an old sewer line had collapsed.
