A very deep (12 meters) and large (16 meters length) sinkhole appeared suddenly
in a loud boom, just 10 meters of resident homes, on Sunday, April 28, 2019, devouring a nice big part of a rice field.

This new crater opened just 4 meters away from another deep (10 meters) and large (6 meters) hole that opened up on September 6, 2018.

Residents report hearing a loud roar, followed by a bang at around 4 am local time. They report it was like during an earthquake. Rattlings were felt over hundreds of meters from the sinkhole ‘epicenter.’

Terrified local residents first thought the 2018’s hole was widening, but then reported the new and larger hole just meters away.
