Sinkhole Swallows Part of Home in Apopka in Central Florida

Sinkhole Swallows Part of Home in Apopka in Central Florida”

A sinkhole opened up Tuesday morning and swallowed a home in Central Florida.

Officials said that at 15-feet deep, it was still growing.

On Monday, September 18, at about 6 p.m., Garry and Ellen Miller noticed something odd going on with a sidewalk leading into the back of their house on Kelly Park Road in Apopka, Fla.

Before the home fell, people were scrambling to salvage belongings from the home.

A family was home at the time but was able to evacuate the home without injuries.

When WFTS arrived on the scene, they could see straight into part of the home.

It's not clear if the sinkhole is related to heavy rains from Hurricane Irma last week.
