Sinkholes can suddenly swallow buildings.
More than 175 dead from weekend storm in Central America
In the northern part of Guatemala City, the downpour created a sinkhole the size of a street intersection. Residents told CNN that a three-story building and a house fell into the hole.
Sinkholes vary in size from 1 to 600 m (3.3 to 2,000 ft) both in diameter and depth, and vary in form from soil-lined bowls to bedrock-edged chasms. Sinkholes may form gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide.
Sinkholes can suddenly swallow buildings. This was known recently, however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years before it was discovered.
So We collapsed the earth beneath him and his house. He had no company to save him from Allah, and he could not defend himself.
٨١ فَخَسَفْنَا بِهِ وَبِدَارِهِ الْأَرْضَ فَمَا كَانَ لَهُ مِنْ فِئَةٍ يَنْصُرُونَهُ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ الْمُنْتَصِرِينَ
The earth suddenly collapsed beneath him and his house. Today we know this is a sinkhole.
