Why geologists suggest that the Guatemala sinkhole is not a sinkhole?
The Guatemala City sinkhole is estimated to be at having the measurements of 60 feet (18 meters) wide and 300 feet (100 meters) deep, That was first said to be triggered by the Tropical Storm Agatha. Volcanic rocks are said to be deposited under the city, but "In Guatemala City [the pumice is] unconsolidated, it's loose," he said. "It hasn't been hardened into a rock yet, so it's easily eroded, ESPECIALLY by swift running water." Natural sinkholes generally form when heavy, water-saturated soil causes the roof of an underground limestone cavity to collapse, or when water widens a natural fracture in limestone bedrock. That is said by geologists. .
