Sinkhole at a campsite

This news is from Queensland. Queensland is in Australia.

A sinkhole opens at a campsite. Cars and tents fall into it. Around 140 people must move away. Everybody is fine.

The sinkhole is as big as a football field. It is 2.7 metres deep.

Difficult words: sinkhole (when ground falls into a space inside the ground), campsite (a site = a place; campsite = a place for camping), tent (a small cloth thing you camp inside).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
