March 7, 2013 – St. Louis, Missouri
We’ve all seen the horrific pictures of the sinkhole in Florida that swallowed up a man while he was sitting in his bedroom. KSDK-TV (NBC) in St. Louis wanted to know if such a tragedy happen could happen here in the St. Louis area? Reporter Grant Bissell interviewed Geotechnology’s Doug Lambert, RG, Geophysical Group Manager about sinkholes. Doug did a terrific job in explaining what sinkholes are, how they are formed, and why, despite our area having a high number of sinkholes, a tragic collapse like the incident in Florida would likely not occur here. The story aired on KSDK’s 6pm newscast on Wednesday, March 6.
