Residents are evacuating from a Florida neighborhood after a sinkhole opened up, swallowing parts of two homes, according to authorities.
The sinkhole in Dunedin is about 35-feet wide, Fire Chief Jeff Parks told Fox 13. The station said the sinkhole is expanding and also has damaged a pool and a boat.
“It started swallowing everything around it. We were home. We were sleeping. My daughter woke us up,” homeowner Michael Dupre said, noting that the ordeal began around 5:15 a.m. local time and sounded like a sledgehammer pounding on a wall.
Police and fire crews on scene are trying to secure the area, but there are no reports of injuries.
“We grabbed only the important stuff,” Dupre told Fox 13 after he evacuated his home. “Insurance information – stuff like that. You don’t really think about this kind of stuff happening.”
This ish is crazy….and fascinating. At the. Same. Damn. Time.
