A sinkhole engulfed a minibus Thursday morning in Guilin, south China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, injuring the vehicle’s driver. The incident was a geological disaster that happened around 4 a.m. on Fuxing Road in the city’s Qixing district. It left a big hole which is 4 meters long, 2.5 meters wide and 2 meters deep. The driver, the only person in the minibus, was being treated in hospital.

A 20 foot wide sinkhole has opened up in a field right near Highway 127, and local residents say that it is still growing.
The photos, taken by Jessica Brown, show the current sinkhole including the visible water line that was installed less than a month ago.
The sinkhole measures 20 feet across, 20 feet deep to the waterline, and then 26 feet of water with very strong currents.

Sinkhole causes rail chaos!

A 100-foot-long sinkhole has ripped through the edge of a retention pond in the Fore Ranch subdivision off State Road 200, leading to the evacuation of one townhome building.
Ocala police Lt. Tara Woods said city emergency officials ordered people to leave the building nearest the hole, which measures about 40 feet wide and at least 10 feet deep. The building is comprised of eight units.
Woods said officers helped in the evacuation and that residents were cooperative. She didn’t know when the largest of the sinkholes appeared, but the initial emergency call came about 8 a.m. Monday.
A resident who was watching city and other emergency crew members work said the sinkhole was not there when she arrived home Sunday night.
At least three other smaller holes, between a few feet wide and about 15 feet wide, opened around the larger hole.
The sinkholes are in the Wynchase section of Fore Ranch, near Southwest 52nd Terrace and Southwest 42nd Street.
Woods stationed a police officer to remain at the site throughout Monday in case area residents need help. Meantime, Fore Ranch management ordered media members to leave the gated community after a reporter talked with residents.
Katrina Enderle, 26, lives in a condominium building next to the evacuated structure. Enderle, who is from Minnesota, said this was the first sinkhole she has seen.
“Well, it’s a little surprising,” she said, standing behind yellow warning tape. “I was talking to a neighbor … hoping we just wouldn’t drop in.”
The series of sinkholes is less than a mile from an even larger sinkhole that opened in Fore Ranch more than a year ago.

Some of the worst damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby that WFTV found on Monday was in the city of Ocala.
A United Van Lines truck was teetering on the edge of the hole near Southwest 52nd Terrace and Southwest 42nd Street.
Reporter Berndt Petersen received information on a large sinkhole that opened up near a condominium complex and caused an evacuation to part of the building.
Police said they moved some of the residents out and they brought the bulldozers in.
Crews hauled in huge earth movers to fill the giant sinkhole that opened in Ocala’s Fore Ranch subdivision.
“My friend sent a text and said they had seen it, and people were starting to evacuate,” said Brittany Laxton, Fore Ranch resident.
Residents in the condos nearest to the 100-foot-long hole were ordered to leave.
Debby’s heavy rains also washed out 250 feet of retention wall from the new $8 million Sharpes Ferry Bridge on County Road 314.
“The old bridge worked. You have to slow down. It saves lives. This thing is a joke,” said Marion County resident Jesse Price.
In Ocala, workers distributed hundreds of sandbags at Tuscawilla Park.
Sharon Cook said her pool is a mess.
“It’s full of water and it’s leaking out, and it’s leaking out toward the house,” said Cook.
There was flooding in the Heritage Hills neighborhood, and 18th Avenue was under nearly two-feet of water.
Shirley Fielitz said she hopes the pumps will get rid of it.
“I hope so, because I don’t drive. But I have people pick me up, and I have two doctor’s appointments next week,” said Fielitz.
Fore Ranch residents said they remember the last time a big hole opened there, just over a year ago.
“I’ve been told by our landlord it was possible, and they were trying to make sure it wasn’t happening, and it did. And it’s a little scary to think that,” said Laxton.
Some smaller holes have also opened out there, and several Ocala streets had to be closed Monday because of flooding.

Besides high winds, flooding and widespread damage, Tropical Storm Debby has aggravated another ongoing problem.
Several opened up in the past couple of days, and officials are concerned about the possibility of more in Hernando and Pasco counties, the state’s top region for sinkholes.
In Spring Hill, a sinkhole opened up Tuesday morning along Quality Drive, collapsing the road and closing it between Spring Hill Regional Hospital and Suncoast Elementary School.
In Hudson, a 4-foot-wide hole opened up Tuesday on Majestic Boulevard just north of State Road 52, where the road becomes a bridge over the filled-to-the-brim Bear Creek. The hole closed the road as it heads into the Beacon Woods neighborhood.
And in Hernando County, Mariner Boulevard near Claymore Street remained closed Tuesday morning after several large sinkholes opened up in the area on Monday.
“We’ve had some flooding before from thunderstorms, but I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Sue Tomason, who lives on Captain Drive, off Mariner. “It’s like a river overflowed.”
Tomason said she woke up Monday to find several inches of water in her garage. Her neighbors also reported minor flooding.
A few blocks away, 15-year-old Anthony Steele and his friend, Jason Pikes, 14, rode their bikes around a 10-foot-wide sinkhole that had opened up on Claymore, near Lake Forest Drive.
Celinda Jones, who has lived in the neighborhood for more than 20 years, said she had seen several sinkholes in neighbors’ yards.
“I’m worried,” she said. “What do you do if one opens up next to your house? Pray, I guess.”
Sinkholes were also reported at the Hernando County Airport on Taxiway A, the taxi strip that parallels the main runway, but the airport remained open.

Sinkholes seem to be swallowing up more and more parts of Hernando County.
There are sinkholes all over the place in part of the Trillum subdivision in Hernando County.
There are about 20 so far and that number could grow. Some are away from homes and some are too close for comfort.
“People have lost their front yards. We have lost sidewalks. It swallowed trees,” said Teresa Hundley, Trillum resident.
Hundley lives in one of about 23 or more homes threatened by the sinkhole outbreak. She and her family have been told to pack up and leave.
“They told us we could possibly lose our homes over here because so many of them have opened,” Hundley said.
Part of Kelly Gregoire’s backyard has caved in. She and her family are prepared to leave.
“Yeah we are prepared now but still in shock and I don’t think you are ever prepared for this,” Gregoire said.
Sinkholes are causing problems in other neighborhoods too.
Mariner Boulevard and Quality Drive are both shut down but repairs should start soon.
Hundley says enough is enough.
“I’m hoping, oh God please because our homes are all any of us have,” Hundley said.
Airport officials say a few sinkholes have opened up and damaged part of a taxiway but the airport is open and the runways are fine.
Also several roads around the county remain closed due to flooding.
