Huge sinkhole swallows street in Fukuoka, Japan

A large sink hole has disrupted water and electricity on a street in Japan. Reports are that it started around 05:00 local time (20:00 GMT Monday), starting out as two small holes on a street near hakata, the  holes that grew steadily until they formed one huge depression around 30m (98ft) wide. There are no reports of any serious injuries as of yet, however ongoing work on underground work on a near by train line might have been the cause.
