Earlier this morning, a massive sinkhole took out part of a 5-lane road in Japan. Remarkably and thankfully, no one was injured.

When it was all said and done, the sinkhole measured 98 ft long and 49 ft deep.

Nobody was injured when the sinkhole opened this morning with a boom before dawn in Fukuoka.

But several high-rise office buildings teetered dangerously at the edge of the abyss as it grew.

Residents in nearby buildings have been evacuated and officials were concerned further erosion inside the sinkhole could make nearby structures collapse.
