Florence has a large stretching sinkhole next to the river Arno. Some cars almost sunk into the sinkhole and two buildings were evacuated. Access to the neighborhood was restricted. The cause was a broken pipe.
A huge sinkhole measuring 200 by seven metres opened up in Florence on Wednesday morning, engulfing 20 parked cars.
The incident occurred at around 6:15am, right in the centre of the Tuscan city, between Ponte Vecchio and Ponte Le Grazie.
