This giant 80-foot wide sinkhole forced the evacuation of seven homes in the Tarpon Shores Mobile Home Park at 89 Rachel Drive in Tarpon Springs, Florida.

The giant crater is estimated to be roughly 35 feet deep. It has already swallowed a fence, a utility pole and portion of a nearby road and still growing.

Duke Energy has responded to the scene because the hole is impacting at least two power poles.

Water was shooting into the air when the hole was first discovered on Wednesday morning.

There is enough place for a small tarpon in there 🙂 Hopefully families will be able to get back home soon.
