In July, a Guatemalan woman found a sinkhole 40 feet deep beneath her bed.
Now, another sinkhole — or giant depression in the earth formed by natural erosion — has been found much closer to home, in nearby Stafford, Va., Channel 9 reports:
At present, the sinkhole is more than 12 feet deep and has swallowed two backyards. While the Stafford County fire marshall has evacuated families from the two houses and fenced in the gaping hole, neighbors say it is only getting bigger. Officials say it may swallow the two adjacent homes next. Watch video of the sinkhole from Channel 9 below:
