As Guatemala emerged from the downpours of Tropical Storm Agatha, it was struck by another natural disaster - a massive sinkhold that swallowed an entire building.
The hole, which formed at a street intersection Guatemala City, looks like a near-perfect circle and according to reports, it spread beneath a three-story structure, which fell into it. A private security guard is believed to have been killed.
The storm's rain is being blamed for creating the sinkhole, which form suddenly without warning and can range in size. Sinkholes are found throughout the world.
