An elderly widow in Florida’s Pasco County came home last night to find half of her home swallowed by an enormous sinkhole.
One neighbour describes the scene to Fox 13:
“You just look over there and the whole back end of the house flipped down into the hole,” Richards continued. The damage attracted plenty of onlookers, gasping in awe at a house that appeared to be turned inside out.
Now the neighbours are terrified as to whether their homes will be next. Apparently the area is prone to sinkholes.
NBC 8 says sinkhole warning signs include doors that fail to close properly, structural damage and sagging trees.
