Family watches in horror as giant sinkhole swallows up their Florida home
A giant sinkhole in Florida is growing larger by the second after swallowing two homes Friday.
The Ramirez family had just moments to flee when they heard the walls cracking in their home in Land O' Lakes Friday morning. They could do nothing but watch as the sinkhole consumed their house.
The entire town has since been evacuated.
Authorities say about 100 homes are without power and it is not yet known when electricity will be restored.
The sinkhole currently measures 200 feet wide but could grow.
"It is emotional, what can you say? You wouldn't wish this on anyone," the family matriarch told reporters Friday afternoon.
The Pasco County Emergency Management Team and sheriff's department have providing updates on Twitter.
