There have been an increasing number of sinkholes forming throughout China within recent years. On March 26th, a massive sinkhole opened up in the southern city of Shenzhen, which killed a construction worker and significantly destructed a residential area. Residents had been complaining about tremors around the construction site as well. The Guangdong province has encountered with sinkholes in the past. In January, a massive manhole opened up at a construction site in Guangzhou, bringing down 6 buildings. Last year in the Guangxi province, a sinkhole formed after a local school dug a well to ease its water shortage. In Beijing more than 100 sinkholes have formed within the past month. The cause of all of the sinkholes in unclear, but it is speculated that the massive bomb-shelters that were constructed during Chinese-Soviet tensions could contribute to the numerous sinkholes in Beijing. Clearly the methods of construction we saw in Country Driving must be re-evaluated in order to promote the safety of residents. Although in the short-term quickly constructing buildings may be beneficial, in the long-term problems such a sinkholes will have very negative impacts. Below is the video of the sinkhole tragedy, which has gone viral.
