This huge Guatemala sinkhole occurred after a natural depression causing soil removal of by water. This happens steadily and slowly however, at times, land just cracks open -- just like in the case of the Guatemala sinkhole.
This Guatemala crater existed when hit by the Agatha, a tropical storm. Fortunately, no casualties were reported as effect of the sudden existence of the Guatemala sinkhole. Guatemala sinkholes like this appeared also in Florida.

The sinkhole left a pit that is about 30 meters (about 100 feet) deep and 20 meters (about 66 feet) in diameter.
Guatemala City's human rights ombudsman, Sergio Morales, confirmed reports that since 2005, residents in the area had complained of rumblings, fissures and sinking terrain.
