Florida Sinkhole Claims 7 Houses


LAND O’LAKES, Fla. — A sinkhole in Florida that first opened weeks ago is taking homes with it.

Check this out. This sinkhole on Land o’ Lakes, Florida is about 260 feet at its widest point.  Five homes were condemned over the weekend,  bringing the total number to seven.

Officials won’t say the sinkhole is growing, but instead say that it is “aggravating” pre-existing vulnerabilities under the ground.

Over the weekend, dozens of dump trucks brought limestone and boulders to steady the sinkhole. Crews are even planning to create a boat ramp so a small barge can work from the inside.
