Guatemala Sinkhole Seen From Above

The 2010 sinkhole in Guatemala (pictured) had likely been forming for several weeks or even years before floodwaters from tropical storm Agatha caused the sinkhole to cave in, the University of Kentcky's Currens said.

"The tropical storm came along and would have dumped even more water in there, and that could have been the final trigger that precipitated the collapse," Currens said.

wa'alaikumsalam Wr.Wb sinkhole itu dalam. timbul dikarenakan aliran air yang berada dibawah lapisan dasar tanah.
