Car Swallowed by Sinkhole : Mysterious Sinkhole Swallows 15 Cars in Meridian, Mississippi

City officials said the sinkhole is about 50 feet wide and runs all the way from the IHOP restaurant to Sowashee Creek, about 600 feet away.
City officials were notified of the incident and arrived to the scene about 7:15 pm on Saturday evening, and they reported that at least 15 vehicles disappeared into the sinkhole.
Wayne Cook, Meridian Battalion Chief disclosed that investigators would start work on Sunday, and that no lives was lost nor any person injured in the unfortunate incident.
The factors that caused the sinkhole are not known at the moment, but it might not be unconnected with the 3 inches of rain that fell over the weekend, and then almost 10 inches fell within the past two weeks.
