There is a gaping hole in Arlington, Texas near a school. It looks like the pavement opened up and there is nothing under it. You can see a picture on the Fish Creek Monitor where they took the time to find a map of the fracking lateral line beneath the hole.
This hole reminds me of the Wink Sink that was also a gaping hole under the pavement. They called it a sinkhole.
Sinkholes and drilling go hand in hand.
Sinkholes can be huge disasters.

my first question would be have they lowered a probe there to determine if there’s any gas coming out. when you look at the amount of water that is used during fracking, the cavern created along the lateral linewould have to be enormous and/or very long fractures
So, no need for Texans to go to Bayou Corne LA to see a sinkhole. Let’s see if the company that owns that lateral line has enough insurance to cover this.
