A giant sinkhole swallowed a five-lane street in the centre of Fukuoka, one of Japan’s biggest cities on Tuesday morning.
The sinkhole now a whopping 27 metre wide, 30 metre long and 15 metre deep swallowed huge sections of road including traffic lights.
The road’s sudden collapse caused power cuts and gas leaks.
People working in nearby buildings, including a 7-Eleven store right on the edge of the sinkhole, were told to evacuate. There were no reports of injuries.
The city’s government said it believed the collapse was connected to construction work on a nearby underground train line.
