That sinking feeling again: Growing sinkhole swallows 12 buildings in China

A sinkhole nearly 200-foot wide in China’s Sichuan Province has swallowed at least 12 buildings and is expected to keep growing. 
The sinkhole opened up around 12:40 a.m. Friday in the city of Guangyuan, Shanghaiist reported. As of 6:30 p.m., the sinkhole had swallowed 12 buildings, but no one was seriously injured. 
Many who have encounter sinkholes have not been so lucky. In March, a sinkhole opened up underneath the bedroom of a sleeping Florida man, swallowing him entirely.
