Sink, sank, sunk

We’ll let Oklahoma City’s KFOR-TV Channel 4 take it from here:

“Residents in Beckham County near Sayre say a massive sinkhole suddenly appeared overnight. They say it’s so big a small house can fit inside it.”

That’s about 40 feet wide and just as many deep, right in the middle of Beckham County resident Jack Damron’s farmland. Right out of the blue. Or the red Oklahoma dirt, rather.

Experts told KFOR’s Joleen Chaney that it’s likely unrelated to the recent seismic activity the state’s been experiencing — oh, boy, another thing that potentially could kill you without a moment’s notice — although it could have something to do with the recent drought. Which also very much could kill you.
