At Least a Dozen Sinkholes Open in Florida Neighborhood

At Least a Dozen Sinkholes Open in Florida Neighborhood”

More sinkholes opened on Tuesday, May 1, in an Ocala, Florida, neighborhood that had already had evacuations.

Emergency responders were first called to the area on April 25 after holes started opening and causing "water explosions" in a nearby retention pond, a news report said One of the retention ponds has been drained while another has lost water.

- A new sinkhole has formed in an Ocala neighborhood, according to the city's engineer, adding to the almost dozen holes that have formed since last week. GEO-TECH employees say they're looking for lime rock with standard ground penetration tests.

"Having them so close makes you wonder, is there a big sinkhole underneath of here or are they just staying over by the lake?" said Maren Pinder, who lives next to the townhouses that were evacuated.

The survey said the dissolution of carbonate rocks begins when they are exposed to acidic water, adding that most rainwater is slightly acidic and usually becomes more acidic as it moves through decaying plant debris.

In 2012, the property owners Association paid tens of thousands of dollars to fill sink-holes in the following according to FOX35. The city engineer told the television station that the hole can not be filled until they know the ground has settled.

Meanwhile, the American Red Cross had stepped in to help those displaced families.
