Tropical storm in Guatemala
 
Guatemala was hit hardest, with at least 92 deaths, 54 people missing and 59 injured, emergency officials said. Nearly 112,000 people have been evacuated and more than 29,000 are living in temporary shelters, Guatemalan President Alvaro Colom said in an address to the nation late Sunday.

I knew I was going to see that picture as soon as I read Guatemala. My favorite headline for this story called it the Gates to Hell. There has been a couple of places around my area that have sunken in and I worried about those but holy hell I'm scared now.

Wow, I wonder how deep it is.

Saw that yesterday... scary shit. Don't know how they deal with this, but if that happens here that hole will stay for years and no one will do anything to fix it.
On a lighter note, we got similar holes in the roads already :D
