Quote: "A camper at a popular Queensland beach has described the terrifying speed with which a sinkhole swallowed a car, caravan and camping trailer. The 150-by-50 metre sinkhole opened up at the Inskip Point camping area near Rainbow Beach about 11pm on Saturday. Authorities say the hole is now three metres deep and takes in a large part of the MV Beagle camp site."

Quote: "One camper, Melanie Wotherspoon, described the experience in a Facebook post. 'Yep, can’t believe we made it out,' she wrote. 'I thought we were goners for sure, was truly scary how fast it came into our campsite and swallowed it up.'"

Quote: "Holiday-maker Casey Hughes told ABC the sinkhole 'sounded like a thunder noise' as it opened up."

Note: A large chunk of land slid into the ocean in 2013 at coastal Whidbey Island (Washington), mentioned in the 2013-03-27 update. Three mysterious water-spewing sinkholes have formed at a beach in coastal Exmouth (Britain), last mentioned in the 2015-08-10 update. All around the planet, methane clathrate deposits are located along coasts, as shown in these maps. In some cases, erosion has covered parts of some of these deposits with land over the ages. As those coastal methane clathrate deposits dissociate (melt), they transform from a solid (of a sort) into water and methane gas, and then the land above or nearby may subside or slough off into the ocean. Is that what happened at Whidbey Island, in Exmouth in Britain and/or here on the coast in Australia? I don't know, but events like these are certainly worth paying attention to.

Another concern as the coastal clathrates melt is that methane is an explosively flammable gas, and if enough of it bubbles out of the sea and the wind carries it onto the coast, then fires and explosions are apt to be a problem. There have already been numerous coastal infernos and explosions, some monumental, and this surely has something to do with methane and hydrogen sulfide blowing ashore.

So, things to look for and especially near coasts: extraordinary fires and explosions, land subsidence, strange odors like the foul smell that recently hit coastal Staten Island (New York), mentioned in the 2015-08-28 update, and anomalous deaths of both animals and people...
