Major World Capital is Sinking

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Friday, January 25, 2019

A prolonged drought in Iran is causing the capital, Tehran, to sink, quite literally.

The city is actually sinking.

Around Tehran, there are massive sinkholes opening up, some as deep as 60 meters.

The soil sinking 25 cm every year.

Without rain to replenish the groundwater, it may be impossible to stop the sinking.
