Huge sink hole appears in Mexico

sink hole

A huge sinkhole has appeared in the state of Puebla in Mexico.

The hole appeared on Saturday 29 May. It started out as only 5m big but continued to get bigger and now stands at around a whopping 80 metres in diameter!

As the sinkhole has grown larger, big chunks of earth have also broken away from the rim.

No-one has been hurt and no properties have been lost. However, there is a family house located close to the hole and they have been evacuated.

Scientists in Mexico have been trying to work out how the huge hole came about.

What is a sinkhole?

A sinkhole is a hole in the ground which is formed when the land collapses away leaving a big hole on the surface.

It happens when the rock underneath the ground is dissolved by water.
