Sinkhole swallowing up front lawn- Florida

A sinkhole close to 60 feet wide and 10 feet deep is swallowing the front yard of a home in Windermere.

Giant sinkhole swallowing up Windermere,Florida home's front lawn:

Now, town engineers said dozens more homes could be in danger of sinkholes as well.

The Padfields moved in two years ago and don't have sinkhole insurance. He said it could cost up to $30,000 to fix the yard.
Neighbors, meanwhile, are scared. Some are thinking twice about purchasing protection against sinkholes.
"That's why we're scrambling to get ours and because if it happens there, it's going to happen elsewhere," said neighbor Charles Mallo.
This is the second major sinkhole to open up in Windermere this year. In May, a massive sinkhole opened up behind a home less than 4 miles away, on Indian Deer Road.
That sinkhole grew to about 60 feet wide and 30 feet deep before crews filled up the hole. The home on Indian Deer Road, however, was deemed unsafe and a total loss.

Top 10 sinkholes in the world

Two of the world's top sinkholes, according to China's Xinhua News Agency, opened up in Central Florida.
Third on the list is a sinkhole that opened up in Winter Park in 1981. What's now known as Lake Rose was once a 350-foot-wide, 75-foot-deep abyss that swallowed up a home.
