Sinkholes, despite their seemingly complex nature, are quite simple. According to National Geographic, there are two types of sinkhole. When the roof of a cave collapses into an underground cavern, it turns into a sinkhole. The second kind of sinkhole happens when water dissolves a layer of underlying rock. This, in turn, creates an underground cavity. Because there is no rock to support it, the layer of soil on top collapses. Regardless, we’d like to stay far away from them, to avoid being swallowed by Mother Nature (via The Travel).
You’d expect a grill to end up in the pool after a crazy party, not a storm. It’s surprising that the grill moved, meanwhile the patio furniture stayed in place. These homeowners won’t be using their grill or pool anytime soon (via My Health Gazette).
We’ve seen many different outcomes from a hurricane. Somehow, this piece of wood ended up directly in the middle of this tree trunk somehow. This is a phenomenon we’ll never have an answer for (via Jitse).
This motorist managed to get caught in the ash fall of an erupting volcano. It seems like it was a pretty intense journey, considering how thick the layer of ash is all over their body. At least their phone managed to stay clean (via My Health Gazette).
After Hurricane Ophelia in Ireland, it appears to have rained apples. None of these apples survived the wrath of the hurricane. Hopefully these apples were picked up from the ground and eaten (via Shwarznegger).
In some parts of the continent, summer is notoriously hot. Even inanimate objects can’t deal with the insanely high temperatures, like this melted lamp. It turns out that it’s not protected against the summer heat. At least this person managed to take a photo and preserve the memory (via My Health Gazette).
