Giant 200 meters long and 20 meters deep sinkhole opens up in Rotorua, New Zealand after record rains in video and pictures


Look at this! It’s very impressive! A massive growing sinkhole, which runs along a fault-line at a Tumunui farm, is about 200 metres long, 20 metres wide and 20 metres deep. The huge crater opened up after record rains fell on New Zealand this weekend.

A giant sinkhole has opened up on a farm near Rotorua following Sunday’s record breaking rainfall in the region. The sinkhole, or tomo, was about 200 metres long, 30m wide and 20m deep.

A giant sinkhole opened up along a fault line in a farm near Rotorua, New Zealand on April 29, 2018.

It runs along a fault-line at the Tumunui farm and was discovered by one of the farm’s staff, who went out to get the cows first thing on Monday morning. It’s the ninth serious cave-in that has been on the farm that was at least 10m deep.

The huge crater is 20o meters long, 20 meters wide and 20 meters deep.

There was one around the other side, I was watching it in the rain, huge amounts of water going in, it wasn’t even filling up with water, it’s just going straight out the bottom.

At the bottom of the cavity there is a large hole where water disappears underground.

The giant sinkhole could get even bigger because there was already a crack which extended 400 to 500 metres through the property.

The huge sinkhole is growing every day and a 400-500 meters crack has already been found by the farmers.

A look into the abyss!

The farm had 146 millimetres of rain over a 24 hour period on Sunday. According to NIWA, Rotorua had its wettest hour on record with 51.8mm of rain falling between 10am and 11am on Sunday, with a total of 167.8mm of rain falling between 4am on Saturday and 6pm on Sunday.

Well this abyssal sinkhole is not as big as the fissures in Kenya, but this growing earth crack could also damage crops and swallow a few cows or sheep.
