4 new sinkholes open up at The Villages in Florida in videos and pictures


Four sinkholes have opened up in a fast-growing retirement community, The Villages, in Florida, including one in front of a home that was abandoned months ago because of an earlier sinkhole. The new sinkholes opened up Monday in The Villages following a week of nonstop rain in central Florida.

The biggest sinkhole is about 30 feet deep and 25 feet long. No evacuations were ordered as of Monday afternoon.

The sinkholes are near two homes in the area that had to be evacuated because of sinkholes last February. The residents were never allowed to return to the homes. Here some images of the biggest of the four:

The largest of the four new sinkholes opened up in front of a house and swallowed half of the road.

The whole garden will soon be swallowed up by this growing sinkhole

The 4 new sinkholes are in a golf course community lined with homes and a lake. Three of the sinkholes are visible. One of them is in the road, while the other two are on individual properties. The fourth sinkhole reopened underneath the lake on the golf course behind the homes.

Two homes and three people were evacuated from the neighborhood in February because of a sinkhole. The Villages, which has historically reported high numbers of sinkholes because of the soft soil where thousands of homes have sprouted, has always been a problem in the Sunshine State — unbeknownst to many retirees who settle there. And of course people selling real estates over there will not say a word… There’s only $$$ in their heads!

Do you remember when a pond was literally dried up by sinkholes last month in Florida?
