RT – Eleven homes have been evacuated due to a sinkhole that destroyed two homes in Pasco County, Florida. More homes may be in severe danger as the natural phenomenon inches closer to a nearby lake.  “I ask that everybody out there please pray for the people in this community right now because as they go to bed tonight, I don’t know if they will be able to sleep,” Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said, WFLA reported.  Almost a dozen more homes in the immediate area in the town of Land O’ Lakes are also in danger of being harmed by the sinkhole, as the depressed plot of land is said to be almost 250 feet (76.2 meters) in diameter and 50 feet (15.24m) deep. No injuries have been reported.  A battalion chief on the scene on Friday expressed to reporters the severity of the situation.  “It’s an active sinkhole, so we don’t know how big it’s going to get yet,” he explained. “We’re just evacuating homes and making sure that everybody is safe,” the chief told reporters. He also claimed that geologists were heading over to the scene of the sinkhole to “give us a definitive number on how big we need to evacuate,” ABC News reported.  This is not the first time a home in this area has had problems with a sinkhole.  The neighboring house that fell into the hole had been repaired in the past due to problems regarding a sinkhole. That home was resold in 2015 after the repairs were finished and labeled as a “repaired” home. At this time, authorities do not know if the homes that were hit by the sinkhole are insured for this kind of disaster, according to WFLA.
