The Australian Courier Mail reports:
"A MASSIVE sink hole is swallowing up the beach at Inskip, north of Tin Can Bay. Campers have told The Courier-Mail the hole, which appeared about 11am, could be up to 100 feet deep. Camper Shane Hillhouse said four-wheel-drives had been travelling along the popular stretch of sand, near Inskip Peninsula, shortly before the hole appeared."
"This has the potential to take the tip of Inskip Point with it – this is huge and on a scale I’ve never seen before," he said. "People are bringing chairs and sitting back to watch it in awe. "This is absolutely amazing – it’s almost at the tree line now." Mr Hillhouse said the sink hole had expanded dramatically since 11am. "It’s three times bigger than it was an hour ago," he said. "Chunks are falling out of the beach into nowhere. Where is the sand going? It’s just incredible." Another camper said sand was dropping 150m into the ocean, although the depth of the hole is unknown. "Sand is sinking in big sections," he said. No one is believed to have been injured."

Beached sucked away
"CAMPERS are watching in awe as a giant sinkhole swallows a popular stretch of beach at Inskip Point, near Rainbow Beach north of Tin Can Bay. A 100m-wide stretch of beach has been sucked into the ocean since 10.30am, and trees were this afternoon being pulled under. Visitor Rhonda Harris said it was a "phenomenon". "When we first came up about 11am the water was actually bubbling like it was boiling," she said. "We saw the 'no camping' sign get washed out."
There is Brisbane news video of the sinkhole from beach side and ocean side but I couldn't get it to play. It kept buffering. Maybe you'll have more luck. Of course, the ad played, but not the news vid, lol. Here is the link to '7 News Brisbane'.
This is citizen's Video of it at Fraser Island (the youtube name is misspelled):
"In other news, there is a 'peculiar' situation in Olpad, India. There, groundwater is gushing out to the surface from different locations. And later in the week, the same thing began happening at nearby Surat. The news article reports on the fact of it happening, and what the government is doing about it, but not why it is happening in the first place."
Another locality spurts groundwater
"Despite efforts to control the peculiar situation in Olpad, water woes continue to haunt people of the area. In fact, the situation worsened on Sunday with groundwater starting to spout from another area of the town late on Saturday night. Groundwater started coming out with high pressure at Isanpore area, which is more than four kilometres away from Olpad town. It spurted from bore-wells and the ground floor of two houses at Halpati Vaas of Isanpore. After complaints from residents, officials rushed to Isanpore and asked residents not to panic. Along with Isanpore, water started to spurt from two more places at Asamanabad."
"Meanwhile, four families were shifted from Malifalia to government quarters in Olpad on Sunday. Houses of these families got filled with water, after groundwater seeped from cracks in the floor. These families were provided necessary requirements after shifting to government quarters. Moreover, ONGC officials started drilling its well no. 1 located at Olpad in a bid to control the situation. Officials also started digging a temporary pond beside the well, to pump out excess gas and water. Sources said that the drilling and digging procedure will be completed within a week."
I've been showing that one of the signs of the imminent return of Jesus is that the weather (air and circulation systems), earth itself, and celestial bodies will be behaving increasingly erratically. During the Tribulation this will be apparent in a big way as soon enough, nothing will be working correctly any more. A third of the sun will go dark, earthquakes will be happening on a monumental scale, the moon will go blood red, there will be no rain for three years, the sea will be struck as blood, and more. In the time just prior to the Tribulation, known as the Church Age, the signs o these things to come will be increasing. Jesus said they will be like birth pangs. The metaphor He relayed is akin to the contractions in a woman having labor. When the water breaks then you know the baby is almost here. The rapture will be the water breakage and the upheaval, bloody and painful labor that will be the Tribulation will eventually birth a new earth and Jesus' kingdom, fresh and new
One of those signs will be the earth cracking up. Things will get so bad that by the very end,
"The earth is broken asunder,
The earth is split through,
The earth is shaken violently.
The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard
And it totters like a shack,
For its transgression is heavy upon it,
And it will fall, never to rise again." (Isaiah 24:19-10)
The indicators that these things are almost upon us are the continual earth changes, cracks, and upheavals that the people themselves who are experiencing them call 'peculiar', 'strange', 'unexpected', or 'unprecedented.' They are are correct. It is a sign that 'natural' processes that we have come to think are ours to manipulate are not. The earth is in the LORD'S hands, not ours.
