Sinkhole Opens in Ottawa, blocks from Parliament Hill

Posted by on Wednesday, June 8, 2016


A mammoth sinkhole has opened up in Ottawa, just a few blocks from Parliament Hill.

The sinkhole swallowed sidewalks and even a car.

Authorities have evacuated several buildings after a gas leak was reported.

The monster sinkhole spans over four lanes of Rideau Street.

No injuries were reported.

A sinkhole is basically a cavity in the ground caused by water erosion and providing a route for the surface to disappear underground.
