My Comment: This is incredible, these are happening with greater frequency and of course the scientists say, ‘Nothing to see here, move along.’ But listen to one villagers explanation. Again the earth is changing, again it is reeling. Isaiah 24:20

The residents of a remote Bosnian village are left dumbfounded by the sudden disappearance of their local pond
Villagers in Sanica, Bosnia have been left unsettled since they woke up one morning to find their tranquil pond, where children once fished, replaced by a giant hole.
The pond water disappeared two weeks ago when a sinkhole formed, swallowing trees and sucking in fish along with everything else inside it and leaving behind a mysterious crater.
The pond was some 130 feet diameter and about 26 feet deep. Now, the “abyss,” as the villagers have dubbed the crater, is some 164 feet wide and 98 feet deep — and growing.
Villagers have a variety of explanations as to what could have happened to it.
Rezak Motanic maintains that the owner of the pond, who died a month previously, has taken the waters with him into the afterlife.
“Hasan, died, and one month after his death, everything collapsed here [the pond]. Water withdrew following him,” he said.
Another popular theory — one that experts dismiss along with others proposed by the locals — is that fish could have triggered the explosion of one of several World War II German bombs believed to have been thrown into the pond by an old woman after the war.
Scientists however say it is not uncommon for ponds and small lakes to suddenly disappear.
They say it could be caused by changes in underground water currents or soil drainage due to irrigation.
