A 98-foot long, 49-foot deep sinkhole came to life Tuesday in Fukuoka, Japan, collapsing four lanes of the road and endangering office buildings that are this close. No one was injured but authorities evacuated nearby buildings.It’s believed that construction on a nearby subway system led to the sudden collapse, which caused power outages and gas leaks in the community. The city’s airport also suffered a brief blackout.
