    Default Huge sinkhole in Texas

    I guess what they say is true, everything is bigger in TX.

    Texas sinkhole continues to grow

    The bigger than life sinkhole in southeast Texas continues to grow.

    The sinkhole, which has grown to about six football fields in diameter, is located in rural Liberty County in the city of Daisetta.

    This huge hole started yesterday morning as just a crack in the road.

    The nearest home to the sinkhole is about a quarter-mile to a half-mile away.

    "It has grown in size," said Hugh Bishop of Liberty County Sheriff's office. "We are estimating 600 yards in diameter and anywhere from 150 to 200 feet deep."

    "We are just mainly watching as the hole grows in size," adds Bishop. "Which direction it is going to be headed... if it does start growing toward the road or towards the horses we will evacuate those people. "

    Daisetta was built on salt domes and some believe the oil taken from the wells caused the land to cave in.

    Daisetta is located about 50-miles northeast of Houston.

    My first thought was "Everything is bigger in Texas", but then I read your post, and you already beat me to it.

    That thing is huge!

    It is most likely related to a previously drilled well not being completed properly. There is one in Wink, Tx (old oilfield town) just like it.

    I wouldn't mind if it became a nuclear bomb testing ground. Why have 'em if you won't use 'em?

    I first thought the thread title said "stinkhole".

    Fill it with water and call it prime real estate "with private lake".

    I thought the biggest sinkhole in Texas was Terrell Owens' mouth.
