Sinkhole opens in Puebla, Mexico; 60 feet deep and now filled with groundwater

A cavity in the midst of farmland was reported in Santa Maria Zacatepec, Puebla, Mexico. It rapidly expanded and now measures 75 yards. The sinkhole which is about 60 feet deep is now filled with groundwater. There is a house that can be seen right on the edge of it.

The locals have been warned about the severity of the whole ordeal and strictly cautioned to stay away from it. “I tell the Poblanos and the people of the region that we are going to be aware that there are no human tragedies. It is a geological fault that must be addressed with great care, with technique and with all the precautions and we are doing it,” said Miguel Barbosa, Governor, Puebla.
