“Karst” – noun, Geology
Definition: an area of limestone terrain characterized by underground erosion, sinkholes, ravines, underground caves, caverns and streams.
The global phenomenon of suddenly forming sinkholes has unnerved humanity from Siberia to China to Utah and Florida. Sinkholes have been around since long before we were, but the intensity of recent extreme weather incidents globally, including collapsing underground aquifers, extreme flash floods and excessive rainfall, tectonic plate activity and a variety of other geologic actions have made it appear that a new colossal sinkhole was opening up somewhere just about every day. I decided to look for USA maps that might help people decide where to relocate, based on the higher or lower probability of new sinkholes appearing in their present home regions. Sadly, if you live in either northern Alabama, southern Missouri, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, southern Arizona, parts of central Texas and southern New Mexico – then your chances of being exposed to a large suddenly yawning open sinkhole are much greater than other parts of the USA. But don’t take my word for it. Here are the maps I have found to date. Have a look. Now might be a good time to consider a relocation of your family to safer more solid ground, before the next round of “earth changes” makes fresh swiss cheese out of your local neighborhood for the ‘umpteeenth’ time in the past decade. Also: consult the end time ‘earth changes’ prophecies of Edgar Cayce for information on relocating to safer regions as well. Almost all of his ‘earth changes’ predictions are turning out to be right on the money thus far.
