Levine is a geology professor at the College of Charleston and director of the college’s Lowcountry Hazards Center. Levine said parts of South Carolina are prone to sinkholes, caused when acidic rain water wears away at limestone near the surface — but that’s not what happened in these cases. Instead, the subsidences, or cave-ins, were caused by something called “piping.”
