The hole opened on Monday at a few-feet deep but has grown to 50 – 75 feet deep and more than 30 feet wide!

The speed of it opening and the speed of it still spreading, that makes it unusual,” said Emergency Management Director Andrew Fossa.

Nearby, The Varsity Club has been evacuated and shut down. County crews erected a fence around the depression Wednesday night to protect the public.

2 geologists will be out in the area tomorrow morning to determine what’s going to happen with the deep crater.

Meanwhile, emergency crews still hear water gurgling at the bottom of the sinkhole, which means it might not stop growing anytime soon.
