Massive Sinkhole Swallows Road In Japan

Massive Sinkhole

A 4 lane public intersection near a station collapses disrupting transport and affecting power supply. The sinkhole is about 98ft (30m) long and 49ft (15m) deep and appears to still be growing. Nobody was injured but several buildings swayed dangerously at the edge of the pit. City officials said the hole was probably caused by subway construction in the city.
