Massive Sinkhole Opens Near Rural Texas Town

A massive sinkhole has opened in a rural area near the town of Daisetta, about 60 miles northeast of Houston.

Overhead footage Wednesday afternoon showed a zigzagging hole believed to be as long as two football fields.

There were no immediate reports of anyone hurt. Officials are trying to determine what prompted the sinkhole near the Liberty County community.

Daisetta is a town of about 1,000.
