CBS News Sunday Morning ran a seven-minute piece on sinkholes yesterday. The report for this piece was Mark Strassman, a former member of the Tampa local news. The piece is a good general overview of the sinkhole phenomenon. Additionally, the linked story includes photos and further reporting regarding sinkholes, with a great deal of reporting from Florida, and the Assumption Parish sinkhole in Louisiana.
The piece is an interesting look at sinkholes not only in the United States, but across the globe as well. One of the gentlemen interviewed in the piece is a man living near the Louisiana sinkhole named Nick Romero. Mr. Romero describes the feeling that many of our sinkhole clients have also expressed. They want to remain in their homes, where they have many memories. However, safety is a higher priority.
