That Sinking Feeling

July 1, 2024 – A massive sink hole stretching 100 ft. opened up in an Illinois park, swallowing a light pole in the middle of recreational fields and leaving a gaping, deep hole in its wake, according to NBC News, and an underground mine might have something to do with it. It happened at Gordon Moore Park in the city of Alton, located about 18 miles north of St. Louis. A spokesperson for New Frontier Materials, which owns an underground mine, told the local NBC affiliate, “The impacted area has been secured and will remain off limits for the foreseeable future while inspectors and experts examine the mine and conduct repairs.”
