Massive Sinkhole destroys Farmville Pig Farm
The Romita Pig Farm just outside Farmville was engulfed in an enormous implosion of swine waste and earth. Investigators say it would take years to sift through the damage to discover its causes. A spokesperson for the farm indicated that the far may have been built over a natural gas reserve which would explain the explosion and ensuing implosion that was reported at the site. Clean up crews are assessing the damage and risk to the water table, but believe at present the damage was limited to the farmsite itself, and having destroyed and absorbed the waste treatment pond, may actually improve the water quality in the area.
