Look down, look way down...

It's going to take an awful lot of backfill to bring back this neighbourhood in Guatemala

The giant sinkhole, measuring 20 meters deep and 15 wide appeared in Zone 2 of Guatemala City. It is just the latest of natural disasters to befall the Central American nation, which in the last few weeks has suffered a hurricane, volcano and now shifting earth patterns.

Boing boing has the full story and a number of different views of the hole as well as suggestions on how to help out those affected by the string of disasters..
