Sinkhole swallows a home in Florida

APOPKA, Florida (WESH) — A sinkhole opened up Tuesday morning and swallowed part of a home in central Florida. 

The large hole was first reported around 8:15 p.m. local time in Apopka. Video from a news helicopter and a news crew on the ground shows the moment a portion of the home fell into the sinkhole.
