Default More sink Holes

About 4 miles from the last Sink Hole in Deltona there has been another one. This one is much wider than the first. I has taken in 2 homes now and more could be swallowed up. These pictures tell the story.

Just think, once it stabilizes, the remaining houses will be lakefront property! It will greatly increase their property value.

It isn't a pretty sight. It's somewhat scary because a house can be swallowed up sometimes without notice. I guess Florida really is built on sand and swampland! Lynne

My in-laws live in Deltona... luckily, not close to the sinkhole. Seems like every time that city is in the news, it's for bad news.

Cheers,
