road cave-in in Taiyuan

On December 26, a HUGE road cave-in occurred at the intersection of two busy streets in Taiyuan city, capital of Shanxi province, causing a bad traffic jam.

The 15-meter wide collapse also damaged three gas pipes and a water pipe, affecting 12 thousand residents.

The above picture shows that the firefighters diluted gas that leaked from the broken pipes.
