Its not often you see sinkholes in the road, or near someone's home, but in Onslow County and Southeastern North Carolina the chances are higher.
Tuesday Dr. Ken Taylor with the North Carolina Geological Survey hosted a sinkhole training program in Jacksonville. He says sinkholes will form in Southeastern North Carolina every 10 to 12 years. He explained to local government officials how they form, where they are likely to form, and how they can be filled in. Taylor says he wants local government to be prepared for the frequently occurring hazards.
Emergency management says there is only one insurance agency in the entire state that offers sinkhole insurance.
