Guatemala City Sink Hole opens up in old Mexican ladies bedroom
This is something you never want to hear, a large exploding sound coming from inside your house!
Inocenta Hernandez, 65, was happy that the damage was only made to her house, see she was more worried about her grandchildren who were playing nearby.
This was a little too close to home, but she couldn't have been too surprised that a sinkhole had visited her city.
Guatemala City is prone to spawning giant pits, which are often caused by tropical rain storms. Sinkholes are natural depressions in the earth that can range anywhere from a few feet to hundreds of acres wide, and measure a shallow foot to 100 feet deep.
Meanwhile, a Texas-sized pit opened up in Daisetta, Texas in 2008. The sinkhole stretched 600 feet long and 150 feet wide; it sucked down a tractor, several telephone poles and an assortment of oil field equipment.
Thailand isn't immune either, back in 2005 a one-kilometre-wide sinkhole appeared in the Kra Buri River in Ranong’s Muang district causing damage to a farmers house.
