A large sinkhole formed at the Capital Circle Pines Mobile Home Park in Tallahassee, Leon County in Florida on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.
The hole has a width of 40 feet and depth of 60 feet, affecting two mobile homes in the area. One of them houses a father with his two children, while the other home belongs to a man who lives alone. The sinkhole is getting even larger and deeper so the affected residents were not able to save their belongings.
Matt Hennessy, the owner of the park, said they’re thankful that no one got hurt in the incident. He reached out to officials including the Tallahassee Fire and Environmental Department. Hennessy said while they expect that the sinkhole will stop growing, it remains unpredictable.
