Children Evacuated From Sinking School

Date Posted: 2000-08-04

Record rainfall caused a nursery school building to cave into a sinkhole in Tamagusuku yesterday. 62 children were inside the building having their noon nap when the building started to sink.

The 19 teachers of the school herded the children out safely and there were no injuries. The sinking caused the window frames and doors of the building to pop out and cracks on the walls.

Five houses on adjacent lots also began to sink, and the police declared them off limits and unsafe as well. Okinawa has received 185 millimeters of rain over the past three days.
