'It sounded like a bomb:' 8 possible sinkholes open near Ocala homes

 

An area of an Ocala community has been taped off after at least eight possible sinkholes opened Wednesday and Thursday, officials said.

The holes opened up on a hillside leading to a retention pond, forcing rescue crews to evacuate people from a row of town homes.

Ocala Fire Rescue said eight town homes were evacuated Wednesday night in the Wynchase Townhomes complex on Southwest 42nd Place after the holes began forming earlier in the day.

New Zealand's 'biggest' sinkhole unearthed by dairy farmer

A massive sinkhole has opened up on a New Zealand farm, with a volcanologist saying it is the biggest he has ever seen in the country.

The crack was discovered at Earthquake Flat, 15 kilometres south-east of Rotorua on New Zealand's North Island

Vulcanologist Brad Scott visited the farm where it was discovered and said it would have taken decades for the underground cavity to grow, but was spurred on by recent heavy rain.

"The largest I've seen prior to this would be about a third of the size of this, so this is really big," he said.
