A big hole can swallow a house – level 3

10-06-2021 07:00

A huge sinkhole about 60 meters in diameter has appeared in farmers’ fields in central Mexico, threatening to swallow a nearby house. The sinkhole is around 20 meters deep. It is filled with water that is constantly moving around.

The family that lives close to the sinkhole has been evacuated. No one has been injured so far, but the governor warned local residents to stay away from the area.

The sinkhole measured five meters in diameter when it first appeared then grew quickly in just a few hours. The reason for the sinkhole might be the extraction of water from the ground, which softens the soil in lower levels.

Officials will now carry out an investigation into what happened. This process includes soil studies, and it could take up to 30 days.

Difficult words: diameter (how wide is a circle), extraction (the process of taking something from somewhere), carry out (to do).
