Almost a 100-foot sinkhole swallowed a Florida villa in Clermont’s Summer Bay Resort. The sinkhole in the west of Orlando sinks 15 feet opened up. A video released recently captured that moment of disaster.
A resident of that area, Debbie Ward, said that she heard a ‘boom’ sound when she was in the tub. She thought it to be an earthquake as the tub popped up and came down. She got out of the tub and decided to get out of the house as soon as possible after hearing cracking in the ceiling and sound of glass breaking.
Drilling on the land has been made by the geotechnical engineers to check if the land has become steady.
The owner of the villa, Paul Caldwell, said that one building was destroyed. Along with two other buildings, all the people of that building were taken to safe places.
A man in Florida died in March when a sinkhole ingested his home in Hillsborough County.
