40 foot deep, 18 inch wide hole in New Jersey
After suspecting at first that a sinkhole might be opening up in the Beneficial Bank parking lot on Hurffville Road, emergency responders were soon laughing about the random appearance of a 40-foot-deep hole that was only about 18 inches across and showed no signs of opening up any further. According to Robert Burkhardt, the fire marshal for the Deptford Township Fire Department, the hole looks to have been some sort of underground drain or well that had been paved over by the original property owner. Burkhardt said that the cause of the hole opening at this time is probably “just stress from over the years.”
Manitowoc, WI man falls into 10 foot deep sinkhole
A female caller stated she tried reaching the man with a ladder but was unable to do so, the dispatcher said. When responders arrived, the man was lying on his back in a 10-foot deep hole, but was conscious. The hole, approximately 3-feet in diameter, was not there this morning according to Strauss' wife, Bonnie. "He seems to be OK; they're checking him over to see if he's OK," she said. Officials said extra equipment will be needed to extract the man because of the soft, wet ground, according to the scanner.

According to Chichkov, the sinkhole not only demolished the three buildings, but also caused ruptures in electricity and gas utility lines. By the afternoon, gas utilities and power had been restored. The sinkhole remains cordoned off by emergency services. The reasons behind the accident have not been made public so far. “There is a version that the sinkhole was caused by subterranean waters, which rose due to snow melting,” the regional head wrote on his blog.
