Anderson County, Tenn. – A sinkhole in the front yard of an Anderson County man was discovered last month. This extra-large pit measures at least 45 feet deep and is directly linked to two previous holes on his property.
“When I walked through the yard, I saw this black spot and I walked over there and seen this big hole in the ground,” Steve Disney told.
There are three sinkholes in Steve Disney’s yard. Two of them are about 25 feet away from his home and one is behind it, on the ground near a rock cave that houses an underground stream with rushing water he believes to be what causes new holes opening up when there was none before.
“There’s another sinkhole right behind this concrete building when I was a kid it was just real shallow now It’s now probably 15 to 20 feet deep.” – Steve Disney
