Video and original story www.kfor.com...
A massive sinkhole appears overnight at Beckham County near Sayre, Oklahoma. KFOR reports that the sinkhole is about 40 feet deep and 40 feet wide. Sinkholes are not so uncommon in western Oklahoma. Geologists at the Oklahoma Geological Survey say several things could have caused the sinkhole including salt or rock formations dissolving or a drought. They also say old coal mines are often full of water and when that water drains, there is no support causing the soil above it to collapse.

Hmmm....appeared two days after an earthquake near there. Me thinks that is a big coincidence.
Jack Damron cares for the property and says the hole formed just two days after Oklahoma's last earthquake about two weeks ago.
Experts say it most likely isn't related.
