SINKHOLE IN GUATEMALA CITY!

This amazing photo shows what happened after it rained in a few hours what it usually rains in one month in Guatemala City after the first tropical storm of the season hit it. The rains were so strong that a whole building sank into this hole...
Once again... What is our earth trying to tell us!!!!!

Hello Miss Florece!

I never had though of what would it happen. I realy don't know how the sinkhole could have been done. I am in your side, what would the earth want to tell us? because that's a really big and deep hole from my point of view, I don't know others, but is enormous!!

See you in class

Hi Miss Florence,

In geography Patsy showed us this, and explained us what had happened.It really shoked me... I can´t believe the inmense hole was made by rain... I imagine it would be horrible be one of those houses which are very near. In Geography we saw that there was one hose wich half was floating above the hole, and the other part was in land. I think the earth made this to make us realize to take care of the earth, and appreciate what we have.
See you in class.

Hello Miss Florence,
WOW!!! WHAT AN ENORMOUS HOLE!!!!
I can't believe it. I can't imagine it if I was there?? I think that many people died. But the most important thing is that the earth is trying to tell us something as you said. I think it's because the global warming and the natural disasters.

Hello Miss Florence!
Wow!!!
It was a very, but very strong storm. I can't imagine to be there with all the panic. I never thought that something like that could happen. When I was going down the page blog and I saw the image quickly I thought that it was another thing, but a STORM!
But the buildings that fell into the hole were do they go the fall and fall until it touches lava or the hole isn't that deep. It really got my attention. HOW AN ENORMOUS HOLEEE!!!!!
Pour people. The people that died (well I think that if the storm was so strong to do an enormous hole like that one it could kill people) and their families that would be shocked and obviously sad.
I hope that Guatemala will get better soon.
I think that what earth is trying to tell us is that the world is coming down. There isn't peace in anything, in economy, politics and the earth is all contaminated is like 2012 to be exaggerated. When I saw the movie I got very traumatized. Well in a conclusion we have to take care of earth, without it we can't live. We have to take care of it. Don't destroy it. Human are destroying earth in many ways. With machines, today with Miss Alice we talked about the Industrial Revolution and we arrived to the conclusion that it had a positive and a negative side.

Hello Miss Florence,
When I scrowled down then of Gabor comment I saw this picture and it really astonished me, I couldnt belive it. I did not now that a building could enter in that hole, because it needed to be a little building because a big one wouldnt fit. I know terribly well what earth is trying to tell us, just as chile and haiti, we need to help our planet and the faster better. Please post more foto's as this one, I really liked it.
See you in class!

Hi Miss Florence,

In Geography Pasty explained us what had happened. I was very surprise. . . And I can´t believe that the rain made such a huge hole. Poor all the houses that are near the hole,and one of the houses (that was near the hole) was, half at the floor and the other half was floating above the hole. I think the earth made this to show us that we have to look after the world,and that we have to try much more to help him.

Hi Miss Florence,
It is really impressive, I never thought that a simple rain would cause that huge sinkhole!
I think that the Earth is trying to tell us that we have to look after it, because if not terrible things happen like the one on Haiti, or in Chile, and many more tremendous things are waiting if we keep on contaminating. The other day, I was watching a film that said that there is more extinction than in the dinosaur era! I am frightened1
See you,

Hi Miss Florence

Wow that's amazing
I thought that wasn't real when I first saw it but i see it is real. I really want to know what is
this ; what provide this amzing hole? I don't really know what earth is trying to tell us but maybe she is tryng to alert us, one of the problems maybe contamination or not taking care of her but maybe it was a kind of meteorite but we don't really know. If there is more information about this please tell me I am really interested with this.
*What a great picture!!
