Sinkhole in Japan – level 2
In Japan, a big sinkhole opened up. It completely destroyed a five-lane intersection near a station. The mayor apologised for the sinkhole. He blamed it on the nearby construction of a subway.
The sinkhole started to fill up with sewage water. Engineers had to work quickly. One week later, the sinkhole was gone. Everything was back to normal.
Nearly 100 local businesses lost money because of the sinkhole, but Japan is going to compensate them before the end of the year.
