Although there was no apparent earthquake nor did anything appear on the charts but a sinkhole has appeared in New York's Central Park.
"I was out jogging early this morning about an hour after daylight and I came pretty close to tumbling in", stated a New Yorker who asked that his name not be given because "I don't want people to know I'm out here early. I might get mugged."
But soon a crowd was gathering until officials at the park had everyone to 'go about their business'."
One of the park officials says that he was in that part of the park before daylight and didn't see it then.
"I was right there by that big hole and it never entered my head that it would suddenly cave in", he told reporters.
No reason has been given except that there have been several sudden sinkholes appear in different parts of the world and in different states.
"There was one in Bowling Green, Kentucky this week that happened under the museum that houses old Corvettes as they are made there. No one can say what causes them other than whatever the water, rock and other things underground are doing."
The hole itself is estimated at about thirty feet across and 35-40 feet deep.
I'm sure we'll be hearing more about the causes of these sudden cave-ins but there seems to be no pattern or anything.
One officer stated that he was glad that at least it happened in Central Park and not under a skyscraper.
"We would swear that it was a terrorist if that had happened anywhere else than here in the park. But there's no smell or anything. We brought some dogs over and they were only sniffing around and showed nothing unusual."
Later: Still no reason for the sinkhole but at least someone was lowered down into the hole and said the ground felt firm and no signs of any people or animals had fallen in.
"Maybe this will made the Park safer at night", stated a city official.
