The Guatemala City Sinkhole
Guatemala has big problems with sinkholes that are caused by the country’s numerous volcanos. This is a picture of a sinkhole that opened up on May 30, 2010.
The sinkhole, which took mere seconds to form, is 18 meters (nearly 60 feet) wide and 100 meters (328 feet) deep.
It is also in the middle of Guatemala City. Unfortunately, the sinkhole caused serious damage, including one poor resident’s home being swallowed in addition to a three-story building.
