For homeowners and commercial building owners, sinkholes are perhaps the most feared natural disaster. The images of homes and other structures being swallowed by the ground have left their mark in many people's minds, but the less dramatic and more common damage caused by the smaller and more gradually forming sinkholes can be a cause of great concern as well.
