I saw a documentary on this. It was amazing and terrifying at the same time. It's worth the 10 minutes if you have the time.

Wrong one. The Lake Peigneur sinkhole happened in 1980. The one in the gif above was 80 miles away and happened in 2012.

Luck had nothing to do with it. Shoddy engineering did.

The failures were shoddy engineering yes. I consider the area "unlucky" due to the relatively close occurrences of virtually the same failure.

It's not like getting hit by multiple tornadoes in tornado alley. I'm guessing that salt mines filling with water are relatively uncommon and here are two examples pretty close to each other.

Edit : And by "area" I really should have said community.

So the community was "unlucky" that they had such shitty engineers locally.


There are some interesting sink hole gifs though
