Default Giant Sinkhole in Guatemala gulps building





A giant sinkhole caused by the rains of tropical storm Agatha is seen in Guatemala City Tuesday........(more)

Quote:
There is a massive sinkhole in the center of Guatemala City. The sinkhole is said to have swallowed up an entire three story building. A combination of rainwater saturating the ground after tropical storm Agatha, which swept through Central America over the Memorial Day weekend, and poor drainage systems is being blamed as the cause of the hole that looks bottomless in the pictures.

They can turn it to a tourist attraction with a big fountain on it.

One security guard might have died. He's gone missing. It was a factory building, so no other casualties.

must have been a top secret UFO base under the factory. may be they repaired the UFO's in that factory and the guard was actually the chief alien supervisor.

I'd think it just took the shape of the building.
