sinkhole swallow indonesia river
Normally, rivers flow horizontally. Now the water of this river in Babadan Village, Indonesia disappears in a deep sinkhole underground, drying up the stream. Very disturbing, isn't it?

This Youtube video was first uploaded today by the chef of the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, via his twitter account @Sutopo_PN:

As seen in both videos, the water is vanishing in a deep and probably very large underground hole. Freaky! Hopefully the river will not completely disappear.

Comment: According to Microsoft translate the Tweet reads:
"The river water is normally flowing horizontally to a lower place. This vertical flow and into the ground. This occurred in the village of Babadan, Kulon Market Giri Rejo Selomartani Sleman. The possibility of an underground hole on the side of the dam caused the water goes into the pit."
Sinkholes , fissures, landslides and similar phenomena seem to be on the increase all over the world, and more worryingly is that they're taking fresh water sources with them: For more on the possible causes, see: Sinkholes: The groundbreaking truth.
