Sinkhole swallows part of village, including home and family


I’ve heard of stories of sinkholes and landslides before, but people usually know when to anticipate them and leave the location for safety.  Yesterday a huge sinkhole opened up in Canada, swallowed up part of a village, including one huge house and the family within.  All have been found and are confirmed dead.  It’s sad how many more of these stories we’re seeing and how much damage is being done.  Here is the link from the original news source, where you can see an aerial photo.  It’s not the best, but it gives you an idea of the devastation.
