You Think Your Home Improvement Projects Are Intense? You Won’t After Seeing This.

On July 14, 9-1-1 dispatchers received a call about a boat falling into a sinkhole in a neighborhood in Land O’Lakes, Florida.

When firefighters got there, the hole had grown to the size of a swimming pool and was still expanding. It eventually got so large that eleven homes in the neighborhood were initially evacuated. Two houses were destroyed in the process.

In the span of a day, the sinkhole reached over 200 feet across and 50 feet deep.
