This sinkhole posted to the Guatemalan Government’s Flickr appeared last sunday in a street intersection in Zone 2 of Guatemala City. The cause: Massive underground water torrents created by tropical storm Agatha. So deep and so round, look like something out of a science fiction movie. There has been a previous sinkhole (300 feet deep) in Guatemala, in 2007, which killed three people.Big holes like this are the exception, but are real and extremely dangerous.
