2015-04-20 - Huge sinkhole, 60+ feet wide, appears in village in the Novokuznetsk Region of Siberia (Russia):

Quote: "The new crater emerged some 3,500 kilometers away from a group of similar holes not far from Gazprom’s Bovanenkovo gas field. There, about 20 'baby' craters appeared in February around a giant one filled with water, which could mean there could be more to come in the new spot. In either location, there's no full certainty as to what caused them. While locals blame old mine shafts, geologists name another possible reason: methane emissions from permafrost melting due to global warming. Methane is a highly flammable gas, and locals are being advised to avoid using fire near the craters. This also makes it a dangerous job for scientists to study the holes."

Note: Seeing as they found extraordinarily high methane levels in the other craters, and a 'flash of light' was seen at one of them, these huge craters are clearly being formed by methane belching from the ground, not unlike the methane erupting from the seafloors around the world...
