The following CNN news video came from Bay News 9. It captures images of a sinkhole in a residential neighborhood that swallowed up part of a family’s house. The video was added to the CNN online video collection on June 20, 2012.
The house is located in Hudson, Florida, which is in Pasco County and is considered part of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The video shows clear images of the house and sinkhole, but no commentary is provided.
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, sinkholes are typically caused by events having to do with water. For example, a decline in groundwater levels can cause the earth to cave in. Some other sources are ponds. There happens to be a pond or small lake right next to this Hudson, Florida home and sinkhole. However, the video does not discuss the cause.
