A huge hole that opened up alongside a busy city street in Guangzhou, China on Monday grew so much that it swallowed several shops whole, taking down an entire building complex.

The terrifying scene was caught on tape, and ended with four buildings falling into a 10 meter hole. Nobody was hurt, but about 300 people were evacuated and the surrounding area temporarily lost power.
