In the Land O’ Lakes region of Florida, an ever growing sinkhole appeared out of nowhere and swallowed two homes and a boat in a residential neighborhood.
Neighbors claim they've never seen anything like it and now are in fear themselves that their own houses will be devoured by the amazing natural event.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said that the expanding sinkhole in Land O’ Lakes was currently about the size of a pool as of Friday morning.
There are currently no reported injuries although it remains unclear if the homeowners were present when the sinkhole occurred, said investigators.
The remaining homes in the surrounding area are now being evacuated by the Sheriff's Department as a precautionary tactic to ensure no lives are lost.
Officials have confirmed the sinkhole is approximately 200 feet wide and approximately 50 feet deep. There is a 200 foot perimeter around the hole. The perimeter may be expanded if the sinkhole continues to progress.
Officials say there is concern that the sinkhole could merge into a nearby lake. Officials are monitoring the progression of the sinkhole and keeping residents out of the area.
