Giant sinkhole devours street in Japan


The giant sinkhole was recorded on video swallowing the whole street in Japan.

On Tuesday, a giant sinkhole emerged in the middle of a busy street in Japan, devouring a part of a five-lane street near the main railway station.

It happened in Fukuoka City and the enormous hole measured around 20 by 15 meters. It exposed support columns of nearby buildings at a traffic intersection that made the people scared of building collapses.

A footage was aired on television, showing two separate holes stretching out as they devour asphalt and soil  in front of Hakata Station at around 5 AM.

"It was a bit dark outside, and my first impression was, 'Is the road really falling?'" a young man, who saw the incident, said during an interview with NHK news.

"When I saw it, two holes were already there, and they continued to grow bigger. I got scared the most when a traffic light fell at an intersection close to where I was standing. I felt, 'I have to get out of here,'" he added.

The sinkhole did not cease to expand, making it two storeys deep by mid morning. It was also filled by water that came from broken pipes.

Thankfully, the police have reported no casualties due to the incident.
