Lol isn't it general practise to read the article to make sure its worth posting, before you make a new thread?
On topic, I don't know much about sink holes, but the hole in the second picture shows like the thread on a drill or something that had scraped
against the side of the hole? Is this normal, or on par with other sink holes? Or is it possible this could have been a mine shaft or something caved
in underneath her home? One of the comments suggests it may have been a well.

im not much of an expert on sinkholes either but i just found it to be creepy so i had to post it. and yes i should have read first but how would you
like to wake up to a 40 foot deep hole under your bed i know i wouldnt.
Yeah I was thinking the same thing, but the article says something about another almost perfectly cylindrical sink hole in guatemala city. I find it
hard to believe, I guess I just need someone to reassure me that this how sinkholes open up...in a near perfect circle that goes straight down. I'm
having trouble believing that for some reason. Now I've seen pics of this somewhere before but much bigger and outdoors, and thought....wtf would
make a perfect tube like that? It's also bizarre the way it just comes through the floor like that....does the house not have any sort of
foundation? I've stayed in places with dirt floors, so I suppose it might not...
I find it strange how the tile has been perfectly bored through too. If it had fallen in, it would have left tiles behind, or taken tiles with it, not
been scooped away in a perfect circle. To the left of the hole is a part of tile which looks like it may have been pushed up and broken off, before
i think the buzzworthy name "sink hole" is whats throwing everbods mental picture off; call it an "inner earth suction hole" then your mental
picture starts to allow you to say ohhh ok thats how foundation and/or tiling looks as if it is cut; the width vs depth doesnt support an old well or
mine collapse without force from above aiding not to mention it would probably sound like a 40 foot crash instead of explosion i bet what she heard
was the "boom" of the suction popping as her foundation and floor was violently snatched
