Sink holes even swallow entire houses

Since the deadly earthquake in Croatia in December, huge holes in the ground have opened up there unusually often and quickly. They swallow whole houses and destroy livelihoods.

Severe earthquakes struck central Croatia in December. Seven people died. But even three months later, the accident is not over. Aftershocks still threaten the country. And with them come other destructive phenomena. Circular, huge holes are created by landslides and drag buildings and thus livelihoods into the abyss. These sinkholes are not new to the area, but typically take decades to create.

See the video above or herewhat these holes look like and what damage they cause on site.
