Residents of a Guatemala City suburb were shocked when rain bought by Tropical Storm Agatha opened up a huge sinkhole in their neighborhood. The 30m diameter, 60m deep hole swallowed a whole building, but there were no deaths, according to reports. Local residents have blamed the sinkhole on the rain and the city's substandard drainage system. Agatha swept across Central America at the weekend, bringing heavy rain and flooding that killed around 150 people.
