The massive sinkhole has grown to about 15 feet deep and 70 feet wide. It was discovered by a woman, at 5:45 a.m, as she arrived to her job in the parking lot at the Publix in Winter Haven, Florida, on Thursday morning, May 29, 2014.
Now, more than 100 parking spots are blocked off and three businesses had to close over the week-end. According to on-site geologists, the sinkhole has slowed down its growth.
According to WLFA, repair will start after sinkhole and ground stabilization. No buildings were damaged and no people injured… Just a big hole in the middle of the parking lot!
