Giant Sinkhole Swallowed Dozen Homes in Guatemala City.

A 330-foot-deep sinkhole swallowed about a dozen homes in Guatemala City:

Officials blamed the sinkhole on recent rains and an underground sewage flow from a ruptured main. The two bodies were found near the enormous fissure, floating in a river of sewage.

The pit emitted foul odors, loud noises and tremors, shaking the surrounding ground. A rush of water could be heard from its depths, and authorities feared it could widen or others could open up.

For some to say its a sign of the End of the World well I think there are alot of other signs that are man made that you can say its the end of the world.The only sign here is a back up of a underground river. They need to go down in the sinkhole and route the stream or river and see what made it have a backflow or back pressure to cause a back up down . Also reinforce the ground around the sink and have every move away from it. But not a taxs payers cost

Here it is the true story what happen. It was a underground stream and yes a lot of towns are made on top of them and when the under ground stream becomes more than a stream like this one well you get sinkhole
If you look and the dirt in the rim of the sink hole you will see wet dirty al most to the top of the whole . With the lack of proper drainage you will see alot more of this .hopeful not as bad as this one.

This is why you should always call your local plumber and look up the name of his company in the "Better to do the digging and not try to save money and do it yourself.

Luna, if you want to find signs for the apocalypse you have centuries before you, AND after you, of bad shite to reference: The black plague, the discovery of the earth being round, the Norse Gods, Greek gods, Roman gods, and Christian God being capricious, etc. Volcanoes; The extinction of the dinosaurs; Tsunamis throughout the passed millions of years; The big bang.
This is an example of physics, not the end of the ages.
