    Chicago - Sinkhole swallows 3 cars

    A sinkhole swallowed three cars in the South Deering neighborhood on the Southeast Side early Thursday morning.

    One person was taken from the hole, at 9600 South Houston Avenue, to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in serious-to-critical condition, according to the Chicago Fire Department.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    I'm glad the guy driving wasn't seriously hurt.

    That poor guy at the end of the video comes over and looks at the hole like "where's my car? I can't believe this..."
