A giant pit in a seed field in Mexico has gone underground.
The incident occurred in Santa Maria Sacatepec, Puebla state. The hole is about 20 meters deep and about 60 meters in diameter. The failure formed literally in front of the local farmers.
A family who lived near the sinkhole was evacuated. Local residents were urged to stay away from this place.
The reason for the failure was found in the geological fault and water level fluctuations in the soil and subsoil. The eco-activists blame the aggressive exploitation of water resources, which allegedly leads to the formation of voids, which fail.
It is noted that the sinkhole may enlarge.
