Awesome! Looks like a typical cenote to me (natural deep wells; rock formations characteristic for the Yucatan Peninsula). Wink

I wonder if this town will be abandoned now that the solar surfer has come? It would be hard to do anything around it, what just cap off the top of it of and turn it into a sewer ?

Dude, that's crazy! It looks like someone photoshoped the hole in there, it's so big. I've heard of sink holes, but that's amazing.

Another pic of it:

Do you see the razor wire on the roof, wtf?!

Oh, I don't doubt that it's real, I was just saying it looks so huge that it's hard to comprehend that a hole that big can open up in the one thing we think of as completely solid. Kinda scary actually, to think that the ground can just collapse like that...

We had a relatively small sink hole in my area a few years ago, to give you an idea of the scale, it barely swallowed a car. Not so impressive.

I wouldn't say it is fake, but I mean, the distance between the surface and the hollow is.. I mean incredible. The ground is thin, unlike this one above. But then again, maybe it could be.

Karstic soils can. They're rich in soluble bedrock (e.g. limestone, marlstone, etc.) and will easily dissolve, especially after a storm like Agatha. People were already hearing sounds a month ago. But since it's a poor neighborhood, no one really cared until it was too late. I think at least 2 died and more are missing. They evacuated the area because they fear other sinkholes might develop nearby. The whole place may be abandoned indefinitely.

Here, in Poland we have also interesting karstic formations. Wink Picture shown below presents so-called "Hercules' Bludgeon" ("Maczuga Herkulesa"), 30 meters high limestone monadnock near Cracow:

Wonderful pics. Very Happy Similar burning holes became, for sure, inspiration for all Zoroastrian fire altars. Smile

Awesome! ..... he he.. almost looks like a suicide pit XD

That is an awesome hole, I need a passport, a plain(plane?) ticket, a pack of wine coolers, some hotdog buns, and a pack of hot dogs. Lets have a party at the door to hell! We will rost hot dogs over the heat of the pit Very Happy

Then at 4 am we will be all drunk and get into a fight at the very edge of the pit, last man standing gets his life... the others will probibly be falling down the pit to hell Laughing
