Sinkhole Causes Resort Villa to Partially Collapse

A sinkhole has caused a villa at a central Florida resort to partially collapse while another section of it is sinking.

Lake County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Tony Cuellar says about 30 percent of the three-story villa collapsed around 3 a.m. Monday. The building had already been evacuated and no injuries have been reported.

Authorities were called to the Summer Bay Resort, which is about 10 miles west of Disney World, late Sunday where they found the building was making popping noises and windows were breaking.

Cuellar says the sinkhole is in the middle of the villa and is about 40 to 50 feet in diameter. He says authorities think it’s getting deeper but can’t yet tell if it’s growing outward.
