Giant sinkhole swallows International House of Pancakes parking lot

Normally, when people use the word “sinkhole” at the International House of Pancakes, they are referring to their stomach after they have consumed a Big Steak Omelette with a side of flapjacks.

On Saturday night, as the earth opened wide, swallowing 15 vehicles in a single gulp outside an IHOP in Meridian, Miss., the word took on a whole new level of literal.

The giant sinkhole — measuring about 50 feet wide and covering the length of the restaurant’s 600-foot parking lot — was preceded by a “series of booms” and the power going out, according to NBC affiliate WLBT.
