Following a period of heavy rainfall, multiple sinkholes have appeared across the grounds of Nayanoripalle village in Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh State, India. Local officials ordered local residents to evacuate the area on November 22, 2015.
Large sinkholes most likely resulted from a period of last week's heavy rainfall, according to experts from Geological Survey of India and Kadapa District Collector K.V. Ramana, who was present as the officials inspected the site.
