Florida Sinkhole Swallows Entire Building [VIDEO]
This is not something from a bad science fiction movie. In Leesburg, Florida, a sinkhole 60 feet wide and 20 feet deep opened up and swallowed a building. This isn’t the first time this has happened in Leesburg. Read more after the jump.
The sinkhole started after a torrential downpour at the end of June. The heavy rains lead to plenty of pits opening in central Florida.
Since the 1950s, 3,100 sinkholes have been recorded in Florida. The naturally occurring holes open up when acidic groundwater dissolves underground rock formations. The video shows that the sinkhole is still on the move.
