After the news coverage of the subsidence in Shamokin, the next clip was a 30 second coverage of a small sinkhole off Belmont Street (if I am not mistaken). They didn't say much about it. I'll go take a quick drove and see tomorrow.

Doesnt look like much is going on. You can walk right up on it if you want to dare...blocked off by orange fence. Kind of crazy since it is right in town and nothing else was done to secure the site. Anyhow, looks like they might be dumping stones into it but it's still open. Fairly decent size diameter, can't tell how deep it opened up.
