Repairs are to begin Wednesday on a 65-foot-deep (20 meters) sinkhole that opened in the eastern German town of Schmalkalden on Monday, local authorities said.Uh huh. Thanks for that.
The sinkhole, which measured more than 130 feet (40 meters) across, swallowed a car and forced the evacuation of 25 people in nine houses, the regional newspaper Thueringer-Allgemeine reported.
Jürgen Reinholz, environment and agriculture minister for the state of Thuringia, said natural causes were suspected, according to Spiegel Online International.
(Quality reporting from CNN.)

...natural causes were suspected...
See? Our fleet of atomic powered boring machines has been cleared of all culpability.
( though I was worried after what happened when we strayed to close to that Chilean mine )
