A Huge Sinkhole Opened Up.

Watching TV this morning, I was surprised to know this: A huge sinkhole opened up beneath a road near the Hakata station.

I wasn't sure if the news wans't true at the time, but it was. After checking other news, I found out that a large part of the street near the Hakata station has caved in.
In the morning, I had to go to a meeting at my company, so I guessed that the station would be crawling with a large number of commuters.

Arriving at the station, I felt something strange. The massive sinkhole has caused a power failure around the area and a part of the railroad-station concourse. Some helicopters were hovering. I was so scared.....

According to the city office, subway construction, which has been under way to extend the city subway line, might have caused the cave-in. The police and city office called on people in the buildings nearby areas to evacuate for fear of more cave-ins, building collapse and a gas leak.

Fortunately, serious injured people haven't been reported except for a slightly hurt woman, who is in her 70's.
If the accident had happened in the daytime, it would have taken a large number of lives...

I hope there is no secondary accident or more cave-ins....

My Embarrassing Stories

The other day, I walked to a shopping mall instead of driving a car because the weather was so lovely to walk for health.
I usually walk for one or two hours whenever I make time.

A few minutes after I left home, I found that I had forgotten to remove a curler from my hair!!! Oh, my...... I was lucky because no one was there. hehe But, I was so embarrassed that I rushed back to my house.....

Another day, I went to a supermarket to buy some toilet paper. However, I bought some boxed tissues somehow......Besides, I didn't realize it at all when buying them. After arriving at home, I found that I had carelessly bought the wrong good.

Was it a senior moment? Anyway, I should be more careful, otherwise I might make a big mistake sometime soon...
