CLERMONT (WKOW) – A sinkhole has caused a villa at a central Florida resort to partially collapse early Monday morning.
Lake County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Tony Cuellar says about 30 percent of the three-story villa collapsed around 3:00 a.m. but everyone had already been evacuated and no injuries were reported.
Authorities were called to the Summer Bay Resort late Sunday because the building was making popping noises and windows were breaking.
Cuellar says the sinkhole is about 40 to 50 feet in diameter in the middle of the villa. Cuellar says authorities think the sinkhole will get deeper but they are not sure it is growing outward.
