Sinkholes weren’t explicitly mentioned in the Book of Revelation, but they sure seem to be appearing frequently enough to signal the end times.

On Wednesday, YouTuber Nicholas Nick Nico Reyes filmed what was already an unsettling sight: Cars along N. 26th St. in Baltimore’s Charles Village either hanging halfway off the street, or sunk into the earth next to the street, as part of a miniature sinkhole event.

But small sinkholes can often become big sinkholes, and as he’s filming, we see nature’s collapse in real time. That sound you hear at the end is our planet whispering, “Soon.”

What about insurance claims? One onlooker who lost his car told WBAL, “I don’t think I could have stopped the ground from collapsing under my car, and that’s not covered.”
