The drought has taken a toll on Texas, including our transportation infrastructure. It’s believed that the dry conditions, mixed with recent rains, caused this massive sinkhole to open up a Houston street.
Standing on the corner, 16 year old Giovanni Long was sucked into this six-foot deep sinkhole. He’s stated “Everything beneath me crumbled. I was trying to dig my way out of the hole, but the ground kept breaking back into me. It’s funny now that I think about it… but when it happened, it was actually scary.”
