Safe Mode: On
Giant Sinkhole

GUATEMALA CITY- A 330-foot-deep sinkhole killed at least two teenagers as it swallowed about a dozen homes forcing the evacuation of nearly 1,000 people. Officials blamed the sinkhole on recent rains and an underground sewage flow from a ruptured main.
The pit emitted foul odors, loud noises and tremors, shaking the surrounding ground. A rush of water could be heard from its depths, and authorities feared it could widen or others could open up.
