A major sinkhole created a giant crater in seconds in the ground of Nurimanovsky District, Russia.

Officials attribute this 50 meters long and 7 meters deep cavity to heavy rains and spring floods and cavern collapse.

This crater with a diameter of almost 50 m formed suddenly, within a few seconds.  And suddenly the ground had just sunk by nearly 7 meters. Frightening!
