Possible Sinkhole In New Port Richey Is Now FIVE Stories Deep
It just keeps getting bigger. The big hole in Pasco County just keeps growing. They’re still not officially calling it a sinkhole. But it’s still expanding and collapsing, according to tonight’s Channel 8 news. They say it’s now 50 to 75 feet deep! Nearby, The Varsity Club has been evacuated and shut down. Crews have been out to the scene every few hours since Monday. 2 geologists will be out in the area tomorrow morning to determine what’s going to happen with the hole and if it is indeed a sinkhole. They say they still hear water gurgling, which means it might not stop growing anytime soon. Officials interviewed in this clip are surprised how quickly it’s grown compared to ones they’ve seen before.
