Sinkhole

(Photo HT Paulo Raquec National Geographic)

I’m not sure how I missed this (BBC News letting me down again) but two weeks ago this HUGE hole appeared in the centre of Guatemala City during tropical storm Agatha. Apparently something similar happened in 2007. It’s 60ft wide, at least 300ft deep and may have swallowed a house. Wow!

More great pics at National Geographic.
