Crazy drone footage of a sinkhole that swallowed cars looks like a disaster movie

A parking lot outside an IHOP in Meridian, Mississippi collapsed the other day leaving a nearly 400 foot by 35 foot gash that swallowed around a dozen cars. Authorities don’t know whether it’s a sinkhole that opened up or a drain collapse that caused the ground to give out like that. They don’t think it’s a sinkhole but it’s all still under investigation. In the mean time, the drone footage looks more like disaster movie fodder than real life.
