Seems like that should be considered a good thing. Either that or it is the end of the world. Regardless you should still go to work tomorrow. Also, as you can see in the picture the people decided it would be a good idea to just jump right in. Smart.

Full story at I fucking love science.com:

Siberia has suddenly appearing holes, but Tunisia seems to be getting the better end of the bargain – a lake that has arrived as if from nowhere in the middle of a hot dry summer.

The lake is just over a hectare in size and 10-18m deep. It is presumed that a small earthquake fractured a natural dam holding an artificial reservoir allowing the water to reach the surface. However, the aquifer has not been found – the theory relies more on the absence of other credible explanations than anything else.
